iOS 17 to Enable Recurring Apple Cash Payments for Kids Allowances and Other Shared Expenses

Apple today announced that iOS 17 will include an option to set up recurring Apple Cash payments on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis, a feature that will be useful for kids allowances and regularly shared expenses, such as rent payments.

Apple Cash Recurring Payments
Alongside this feature, users will have the option to automatically top up their Apple Cash balance when it runs low, according to Apple.

Apple revealed this addition in a press release highlighting a long list of new services-related features coming to iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS Sonoma, watchOS 10, and tvOS 17. Another feature announced was the ability for iPhone users to present an ID stored in the Wallet app at participating businesses later this year.

This is going to be a useful feature. Apple going after PayPal/Venmo, Cash App, Zelle, and the like.

Bonus: Apple Cash balance (since it's held with Green Dot Bank) is FDIC insured unlike storing funds with PayPal/Venmo

I agree. U.S. currency is legal tender and should be accepted everywhere in the U.S.
All legal tender means is it has to be accepted as payment of a debt, and a store purchase is not debt

I've never come across a place of business that didn't accept cash. On the other hand, there have been places that only took cash (e.g. Pho restaurants, street food vendors, food trucks, etc.)
Depends where you live. For example here in Phoenix you will run into a few businesses like coffee shops that will only take cards.

Just like I believe every business should offer Apple Pay, every business should also offer cash payments. Never understood why a business would want to limit how you got paid, money is money.

Wait. Can you get a card to use this money or does it have to go through ApplePay using an Apple Watch or iPhone?
It has to go through Apple Pay. Which is why the Kroger addition is such a big deal.
