Apple on Saturday published a support page that includes a three-step guide as a workaround for the autocorrect bug.
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. So here's how to fix it while Apple works on a patch.
If someone you owe money to sends an Apple Pay request through an iMessage, you tap Pay on the bubble inside the Messages app; the requested amount may be pre-filled.
Apple is introducing a new App Store pricing feature for developers starting with iOS 11.2.
Once the money arrives to the Apple Pay Cash card, it's immediately usable anywhere that accepts Apple Pay.
There, you'll be shown an option to add money, with the minimum being $10.
Now, beta users have begun to test out the service, which will roll out publicly with iOS 11.2 and watchOS 4.2. I'm betting Apple will put out another update with a fix for this issue soon, seeing as it's a hugely fundamental error to have in a system that millions of people use every day! Money received will apparently be available immediately or transferred into a bank account with a short waiting period. There's no app to download, and you can use the cards you already have in Wallet. You also need these things: ● A compatible device with iOS 11.2 or later. If you send money using a credit card, there's a standard 3% credit card fee on the amount funded with a credit card.
Most of the features should make it into the final iOS 11.2 release though Apple could hold some back for additional testing if needed.
