The update also adds support for fast wireless charging for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. These phones earlier supports fast charging up to 5 watts, and with the new update adds to 7.5 watts of wireless charging.

Apple recently released their new iOS 11.2 software update. Apple took the unusual step of releasing its iOS update on the weekend to remedy that issue, but seems to have rushed it out with some parts not operational.

To start with, the iOS 11.2 was scheduled for the for the Over-The-Air (OTA) update later this month, but the company chose to rush it out, to fix the bug which as continuously crashing/restarting the device after 12:15 AM on December 2.

Unlike its competitors, Apple Pay Cash doesn't work on Android devices. The card is part of the new Apple Pay functionality allowing USA customers to send and receive money among friends and family quickly, easily and securely. Because of the rush, however, it also rolled out a feature that was practically useless at that time: Apple Pay Cash.

More details on Apple Pay Cash from Apple can be found here. Oh, and you'll need to have two-factor authentication turned on, and be over 18.

In order to use the feature, you need to have two-factor authentication enabled, and you can then configure your Apple Pay Cash card in the Wallet app.

Other iOS headaches Apple has gotten around to fixing are bugs that would prevent a lost phone from showing up on the Find my Phone map (not particularly useful for those who have already lost the phone) and bugs that would cause the keyboard to be slow to respond or block the message text being typed. To verify, enter your SSN and date of birth. The good news is that even if your primary Apple Pay card is a credit card, Apple Pay Cash defaults to using the debit card on file to help avoid that fee.

The money can either be kept in the Wallet and then used to make purchases with Apple Pay, or it can be withdrawn to a bank account.

You can also invoke Siri and send money, by saying, "Send $10 to John". But Apple Pay Cash is different.

Begining today, Apple announced customers can now to receive or send money to family members and friends, quickly, easily and securely through iMessage. Alternatively, P2P balances can be directed back to the user's bank account. Cash app users can save the money they receive in the app, or deposit it directly to their bank account.
