New Apple Pay Tutorial Video Highlights Peer-to-Peer Payments [Update: Video Removed]
Sep 21, 2017 7:21 pm PDT by Juli Clover
Apple this evening introduced a new series of tutorial videos, this time highlighting Apple Pay on the iPhone.

One of the videos, which is unlisted, goes through the steps necessary to use Apple Pay Cash, the peer-to-peer Apple Pay feature Apple plans to add in a future iOS 11 update. Apple has already demonstrated most of these steps, but it's interesting to see the simplicity of it in action from end to end.


As described by Apple, users simply need to open the Messages app, go to the App Drawer, tap Apple Pay, enter an amount, and approve the payment with Touch ID.

Apple also mentions approving Apple Pay Cash payments with Face ID, the facial recognition feature on the upcoming iPhone X. Payments received can be accessed through the Apple Pay Cash card in Wallet. There's no word on when Apple Pay Cash will be released, but it could come in the next major iOS update ahead of when the iPhone X launches.

Given that this Apple Pay Cash video is unlisted, it could potentially be removed from YouTube or made private.

The other two videos videos walk users through how to add a card to the iPhone's Wallet app to use with Apple Pay and how to pay in stores with a Touch ID-equipped iPhone.




Like all of Apple's previous tutorial videos, the Apple Pay tutorials are short, to the point, and primarily designed for users who may not often use these features. Apple has also done a series of tutorial videos on iOS 11 features new to the iPad Pro and iPhone 7 camera features.

Update: Unfortunately, Apple has removed the accidentally-release peer-to-peer Apple Pay video.

Kind of concerning that once an Apple Pay request pops up on the iPhone X, it will process as soon as it sees your face. What's to stop some website from requesting $10,000 from you and then having it instantly process because it saw your face? I really don't like that.

You have to make an instant decision and make a frowny face, to decline the transaction. Like this: :mad:

I would prefer to put in a passcode or use Touch ID when making payments. The whole Face ID thing is a bit of a worry.


If you're worried then don't use it Lol.

I think people are taking Face ID wayyy out of proportion. It's not that serious.

The talk of being robbed and the robber holding your phone to your face, the talk of girlfriends unlocking your phone while you're sleep... Now people are afraid of accidentally sending money?

Jeeeez Louise.

The user has to approve with a tap. I don't see what the problem is.

Do you actually think that no one has thought of this? I'm pretty sure you have to confirm any transaction. That's just a common sense basic precaution. Also, how would a website even force your Apple Pay to launch and enter an amount?

Yeah, I'd like to know this as well. It's kind of the most important part.


Cash out?! It's probably automatically taken as a downpayment for the iPhone XI.

Really anticipating this. It will be a big convenience. Kind of like venmo but more trusted, hopefully more ubiquitous, and I’ll be able to use the balance wherever Apple Pay is accepted, a huge advantage over having it sit in my Venmo account or having to transfer it back to my bank. Also hopefully it will help spur on Apple Pay adoption.

Only disadvantage is of course being Apple it’s not cross platform. I guess I’ll have to stop hanging out with non-iPhone users. :(
