What's wrong with the 'i' in iPhone?

An iPhone glitch is causing frustration with Apple users.

Not all iOS 11.1 users have been affected, though there are plenty of comments online from those who say they have experienced the problem. Apparently all you need to do is open the Messages app used for SMS texts, and you'll find a button for Apple Pay when you click on the Apps button next to the space where you write your messages.

The BBC has contacted Apple for comment.

The bug seems to be related to Apple's cloud-based synchronization for predictive text - a relatively recent feature that allows users' dictionaries to be shared using its iCloud service. Instantly.To send and receive money with Apple Pay, you must be at least 18 years old and you must live in the United States.

With one blunder, Boris Johnson just went from incompetent to deeply unsafe
The mother-of-one mounted an appeal but lost the final stage of her case in April this year - 12 months after her ordeal began. Zaghari-Ratcliffe has never done any work in Iran and she was simply taking her daughter to visit the girl's grandparents.


Once the money arrives to the Apple Pay Cash card, it's immediately usable anywhere that accepts Apple Pay.

The odd problem was first highlighted on Reddit where user TheCravin noted that 2 of their friends were suffering from the issue on their iOS 11.1-running iPhones.

How does Apple Pay Cash compare with competitors?

No fees apply for debit cards, but you'll have to pay an "industry standard" fee for credit cards. There are quite a few options available in the App Store, including GBoard (free), SwiftKey (free) and Swype ($.99).

However, the company is recommending a workaround fix until the software update is released. That means the money is federally insured up to $250,000, just as it would be in a traditional bank account. There's no app to download, and you can use the cards you already have in Wallet. With Square Cash, you can receive a physical debit card, while Venmo has offered the same service to a select number of customers.
