PSA: Do not delete Apple Pay Cash from your iPhone running iOS 11.2

PSA: Do not delete Apple Pay Cash from your iPhone running iOS 11.2
It was just last weekend when Apple pushed out iOS 11.2 to stop a bug related to the date of December 2nd, from continuously crashing certain iPhone models powered by iOS 11.1.2. The affected units were receiving set notifications from certain apps, that were coming from inside the user's iPhone. While iOS 11.2 stopped the madness, it also added new features such as three new live wallpapers for the iPhone X, faster wireless charging for compatible iPhone units, and Apple Pay Cash. The peer-to-peer payment system didn't actually start up until the following Monday.

Some new revelations about iOS 11.2 and Apple Pay Cash have come out. If you delete Apple Pay Cash on an iPhone running the latest iOS build, you will not be able to reinstall it on iMessage unless you wipe iOS off of your iPhone and reinstall it. That comes from an employee who works for Apple Support. However, we should note that even if you remove Apple Pay Cash from your iPhone, you can still transfer money using the new feature by requesting a money transfer from Siri.

Perhaps Apple will be able to come up with a software update that will allow users to delete and add Apple Pay Cash to iMessage at their will. But for now, if you think that you might use Apple Pay Cash some time in the future, leave it on your iPhone.

More like iOS 8. iOS 6 was a very reliable version of iOS...

Yep, iOS 8 was horrible. Apple had to downgrade us back to iOS 8.0 and cancel iOS 8.0.1. That was an embarrassing moment for them.

Android is nothing but boring... No major changes in 8.0 and it's not even coming for so many phones until mid 2018...LMAO

Android can update most of the core functions through updates of individual apps and play services itself which is why the os update is rather mundane with no noticeable changes for the most part. We don't need to wait for major os updates.

The general interface for the iPhone has remained visually identical for over ten years. Remind us again why you haven't highlighted this nugget of information?

Are you feeling OK?? Android is boring? If you look at every person who has an iphone they look identical apart from the wallpapers. At least Android has different skins from each OEM or different themes from Samsung Theme stores and others.

It's ironic how this article was posted hours after the same article that Apple fanboys were bragging about the dozens of updates their products receive.

Wow. One step forward, 2 steps back. I get upset when an old phone glitches from software updates. I can't imagine how I'd feel with a phone that's costs over a grand. Of course Apple fans just grin & smile. :-P

That's not 2 steps backwards... It's a slight misstep and not even a bug that causes trouble.

Apple's really not that good at making software

Why do you guys waste your time constantly arguing with piyath? He has zero interest in taking tech, or being real, and just wants to drop one liners to get a rise outta y'all.

Only two possibilities, either he is mentally ill or he just really enjoys provoking Android users( quite successfully).

Both.

But "It just works" I'm so glad I'm not in a job where I need to deal with Apple's annual broken updates anymore.
