    Apple today released a series of new 15-second ads highlighting Apple Pay Cash under the tagline "Just text them the money."

    One ad shows how roommates can use Apple Pay Cash in Messages to send rent money, while another includes a "lost shirt" scenario that demonstrates the ability to request a specific dollar amount.




    A third ad highlights two friends discussing and paying for tickets to a game even though it conflicts with another friend's wedding, while the fourth ad covers a mother sending money to her child after receiving a photo of an empty fridge.




    Apple Pay Cash launched in the United States with iOS 11.2 in early December through a partnership with Green Dot Bank and has yet to expand to any other countries.

    I just use Zelle now. It transfers money directly into people’s bank.

    These are great and so specific, message bubbles and Apple Pay. Simple, easy and effective.

    Had that for years, you just use peoples phone number to transfer money to each other and to pay with in shops in Denmark.

    Enter the phone number, and then the amount, boom the money is transferred. everything in its own simple app.

    Great until the last sentence. I'll stick with Monzo in the UK for now.

    Most banks have let you transfer money with just a mobile number for years. Which is a good thing since Apple hasn't bothered releasing this outside of America.

    Alas Apple Pay only seems to be limited availability
    It’s been nearly eight months now, and it still has not launched in the U.K, Canada etc

    I'd actually use this. My banking app is hard to use in a taxi coming home from a dinner after a vat of wine with friends.
    Hopefully I won't accidentally add a zero to the end.

    Apple Pay is here in the UK. I use it all the time to pay for stuff. EDIT : you're referring to paying other people and not just companies, aren't you. My mistake.

    It’s way better. I never ever even set up Apple cash.

    The second I found out how it worked I was disinterested.

    Would be great to see Apple Pay Cash launch in the UK especially when it appeared as an option in settings but I guess they’ve got to find a partner first...
