Gmail updated for iPhone X, third-party email accounts can now be added

It's all pretty straightforward stuff, but let's just quickly break down the difference between Apple Pay and Apple Pay Cash, for those who aren't quite sure.

Apple Pay Cash is now available through all models of the Apple Watch as part of the watchOS 4.2 software update.

Beginning December 5, Apple customers in the USA can use Apple Pay to send and receive money with friends and family quickly, easily and securely.

When users get paid, the money they receive is added to their new Apple Pay Cash card that lives in the Wallet app.

Of course, given how different a device it is, there are very important differences in how you use Apple Pay Cash on the Apple Watch. Apple Pay Cash in only available in the United States at the moment, Apple is expected to release it in more countries soon.

Now that the iPhone is ten years old there has been a certain amount of fragmentation - iPhones older than the iPhone 5s can't run the latest operating system, for example.

The release is identified as Build 15S102. The update also adds support for HomeKit sprinklers and faucets, adds enhanced downhill snow sports tracking for third-party apps, and resolves a variety of bugs, including one that would crash the watch when asking Siri about the weather.

The Apple watchOS 4.2 software update brings a range of new features to the Apple Watch.

Resolves an issue that prevented simultaneous timers or alarms from being dismissed independently. It sources funds from the credit and debit cards you already have linked to Apple Pay, so no need for yet another tedious setup process.

Apple Pay Cash takes on competing services Square Cash and Venmo to offer an efficient to transfer money through the Apple Watch. The feature became available to all eligible iOS 11.2 and watchOS 4.2 beta users last month.
