Apple Pay Cash Setup Option Showing up in Canada for Some Users

Apple Pay Cash is currently only available in the United States and allows users to easily and quickly send and receive money securely to each other via Messages.

While the feature is unavailable in Canada, recently, some users have started seeing the option to set up Apple Pay Cash here.

iPhone in Canada reader @rfrancey says after installing iOS 11.4, an option to set up Apple Pay Cash now appears in Settings > Wallet & Apple Pay:

Obviously, attempting to set up Apple Pay Cash does not work, according to Russell. The option still remained after a reboot, and after a recent wipe and reinstall of his iPhone.

There are other users also similarly seeing this option appear, including some users on Reddit back in April. There’s no word when Apple Pay Cash will ever launch in Canada. Waiting for Apple Pay Cash here is reminiscent of the days of waiting for Apple Pay to land in Canada (don’t even get us started on Apple News).

Last fall, there was a trademark filing in Canada for Apple Pay Cash, so that could be a sign it will eventually make its way here.

Are you seeing an option to set up Apple Pay Cash on your iPhone?
