Overview of Requirements

Before we get into the step-by-step tutorial, it‘s important to know the requirements for transferring money from Apple Pay to your bank account:

First and foremost, transferring money requires…

  • An iPhone or iPad compatible with iOS 12 or later
  • Apple Pay and an active Apple Cash card
  • At least 18 years old
  • A verified U.S. based debit card or bank account connected to your Apple Cash
  • Reliable WiFi or cellular data connection

In most cases, you‘ll also need to…

  • Verify your identity with Apple by providing details like SSN, address, ID scans
  • Review and accept Apple Cash terms after reading carefully

Ensuring these requirements are met in advance guarantees a smooth, hassle-free money transfer process.

Now let‘s get into the 8 simple steps for moving money from your Apple devices to your bank account…

Step 1: Access Your Apple Wallet App

Like a physical wallet holds cash and cards, the Wallet app on your iPhone or iPad holds your digital Apple Cash.

To initiate a cash transfer, simply open your Wallet and locate the Apple Cash card.

Tip: Use search or swipe left from your home screen to find and launch the Wallet quicker.

Step 2: Select Your Apple Cash Card

Once the Wallet app opens, select the Apple Cash card by tapping it.

This will display your current Apple Cash balance, the amount available to transfer or spend.

Pro Tip: If your Apple Cash card says "Coming Soon", follow the setup prompts which verify your identity to finish activation.

Step 3: Tap the More (⋮) Menu

Up in the top right corner of your Apple Cash card, tap the More menu (⋮ icon).

This expands settings and options, including Money Transfer capabilities.

Step 4: Choose "Transfer to Bank"

Next, from the expanded menu, select "Transfer to Bank" to move money from your Apple Cash card balance to your bank account.

You‘ll then choose the transfer amount and destination bank account.

Step 5: Enter Your Transfer Amount

Use the keypad to enter the dollar amount you wish to transfer from Apple Cash to your connected bank account.

You can transfer as little as $1 or up to your full available Apple Cash balance, as long as it‘s within sending limits.

When ready, tap Next.

Read on for details on maximum weekly/daily transfer limits.

Step 6: Select Destination Account

If you‘ve already added a bank account, it will appear as a transfer destination.

Verify the correct account is selected, then tap Next to continue.

If you have no bank connected yet, follow the prompts to add one by providing your account details.

Step 7: Verify Transfer Overview

Before completing the transfer, verify all critical payment details. Carefully check:

  • Source: Your Apple Cash balance
  • Destination: Your chosen bank account
  • Transfer amount

If all the information looks accurate, tap Transfer to confirm and send the funds.

Step 8: Monitor Transfer Status

That‘s it! You‘ll receive a confirmation that your bank transfer has been initiated.
