Apple Pay Cash Watch
Apple WatchOS 4.2 supports Apple Pay Cash via iMessage, Wallets, and Siri. Users can pay up to $3000 to their friends and Family.

Apple has started to roll-out WatchOS 4.2 officially for all the Apple Watch models. The update now officially supports Apple Pay Cash, one of the most talked-about features, since it was first teased at the Apple developer conference in June this year.

To use Apple Pay Cash on Apple Watch, users will first need to set up the payment options on their iPhone running on iOS 11.2 or later. Once the Apple Pay Cash is set up on iPhone, the implemented feature will be made available in iMessage App, as well as the wallets app on the Apple Watch. Along with that, the option can also be used with Siri Voice commands.

Apple Pay Cash works as an individual option in iMessage app on Apple Watch and the option is visible in the conversations. The Wallet can be used to pay for purchases in App Store and for in-app purchases. The maximum limit per transaction is $3,000 and there is no fee is paid using a bank account or debit card. However, for credit card payments, it charges 3%, which is a industry standard fee.

Apple Pay is currently available for customers in the United States. That means, for the users coming from outside the state, the option will not show up on their iPhone or Watch. Apple has also not issued any tentative deadline for the release in other countries.
