Sending friends cash via your iPhone just got a whole lot easier. Apple is finally rolling out Apple Pay Cash to all U.S. users after the company pushed out iOS 11.2 over the weekend.

In order to send and receive Apple Pay Cash on your iPhone, you’ll first need to install iOS 11.2. To do that, go to the Settings app, then hit the Software Update section under the General tab. The Apple Pay Cash functionality seems to be rolling out slowly to users now.

Apple Pay Cash allows you to send money from your bank account to your friends’ phone. The money is stored in your Wallet app as an Apple Pay Cash card. You can then use the money for Apple Pay purchases or transfer it directly to your bank account.

For a full rundown on how to make the most of Apple Pay Cash, check out our Apple Pay Cash guide. Apple Pay Cash is only available to U.S. users who are 18 or older.

iOS 11 brings a number of other new features as well, including faster 7.5-watt wireless charging for the iPhone X and iPhone 8. It also fixes the annoying autocorrect bug that changed “it” to “I.T.”
