Apple Pay Cash, which was announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, won’t be launching this week with the first public version of iOS 11. Instead, Apple says the feature will come with an update to iOS 11 and watchOS 4.
In a new blog post about tomorrow’s worldwide launch of iOS 11, Apple explains:
Coming this fall with an update to iOS 11 and watchOS 4, Apple Pay users will be able to send and receive money from friends and family quickly, easily and securely. Pay and get paid right in Messages, or tell Siri to pay someone, using the credit and debit cards they have in Wallet. When users get paid, they receive the money in their new Apple Pay Cash card in Apple Wallet and can use the money instantly.
Apple Pay Cash isn’t the only iOS 11 feature not arriving tomorrow.
The Messages in iCloud feature, also announced at WWDC, was removed from the iOS 11 beta 5 in August and hasn’t returned. Apple promises the tool, which syncs messages across multiple devices, will launch in an iOS 11 update.
As a reminder, Apple will push out new software sometime tomorrow, Sept. 19. This includes iOS 11, tvOS 11, and watchOS 4. MacOS High Sierra launches on Sept. 25.
