    I've had the Apple Pay Cash card show up in my wallet. Has anyone else had this?

    It first appeared for me last year sometime when a slew of countries also saw the option.

    It sometimes appears if you change the region to United States but disappears again once you revert to United Kingdom.

    Ah right okay. Mine was set up for UK only last year when it appeared then it disappeared in a iOS update this year sometime.

    Changing the settings to United States left it as an option in Wallet & Apple Pay but it’s disappeared again now.

    I’m on the latest non beta update, I have travel card settings but no Apple Pay Cash... I do wonder if it’s ever going to arrive in the uk.

    Siri used to say something along the lines of ‘it’s not available due to device/region settings’ but I get this now:

    It's most likely at this point only going to be a US thing, I fully expect the Apple Card to never come to the UK either.

    It will arrive and my bet is October. Apple have been in discussions across Europe for a long time now.

    I suspect it’ll be around the time of the iPhone launch in September too.

    I thought so too until it was removed from the Beta.

    Why do people think Apple Pay Cash is needed in the UK? Surely in the USA it solved a problem with their antiquated baking systems, but over here we have instant free bank transfers, paym etc?

    Genuine question. What advantages would it bring?

    I agree. I suppose the only reason is that people can transfer money to you without having to know your bank details. To be honest, I cannot see many people using it in the UK. I do not think I will bother.

    For me it would mean I use use Apple Pay Cash to send money to people with a compatible iOS device without having to log into Internet Banking.

    Plus you can store a balance on it and use it over a credit/debit card if you wish.

    I know we have a fair few options but other then Faster Payments I’ve never bothered with PayM personally.
