Finally! Person-to-person Apple Pay payments coming to iMessage with iOS 11
Person-to-person payments are finally coming to Apple Pay. This was just announced on stage at Apple's opening keynote at WWDC '17.
iOS users will be able to send money to one another straight from iMessage thanks to a new dedicated iMessage app. Most interestingly, if someone messages you that you owe them money (ouch!), a contextual suggestion to send money with iMessage's Pay app will immediately pop up in the text suggestion bar at the top of the stock keyboard, allowing you to easily send the other party the required amount of money and be done with it.
Rest assured you will be able to receive shekels from other people the same way - blessed be!
Person-to-person payments will arrive for iOS 11 users later this year, in the fall.
