Planning For Apple’s Credit Card? This Could Help You Decide

The card is notably built into the iPhone’s Apple Wallet app, and customers also have the option to get a physical titanium card for transactions with merchants that don’t yet accept digital payments.

Apple has launched a credit card to link with Apple Pay. Yesterday was when, of course, Apple Card was announced.

If you value your device’s security, you’ll want to download iOS 12.2 in the near future because it comes with new security patches.

“We saw an opportunity to transform another fundamental method of payment, and that’s the credit card”, Apple CEO Tim Cook told attendees Monday during a presentation of the company’s new product lineup. Apple not only redesigned the card itself, but reimagined what it looks like to pay for goods, get rewards for those goods, and pay off the card.

Keep this in mind when considering the card. The unusual thing is that in order to muscle in on a competitive industry, issuer Goldman Sachs has tossed aside numerous features that make the card business lucrative for banks in the first place.

He conceded, however, that the Apple Card wins out from a customer service perspective, as it is powered by cloud-based back-end systems versus mainframe FDR/TSYS systems, allowing Apple to offer features like a virtual card, higher-end security, customized payments and other benefits. When you do get around to buying a new device, it’ll have to be an iPhone. “It’s just delightful. And it’s … going to shock all the traditional credit card holders.”, Pliniussen also added.

Even at half the rate of return rivals get, Goldman’s credit-card business would still beat the group’s overall yield on assets, which was 1.1 percent previous year. It’s fairly straightforward and potentially enticing, depending on your spending habits.

Apple Card is deeply integrated with iPhone and will be stored in the Apple Wallet app. Apple Arcade games will be great for families, respect user privacy and will not have ads or require any additional purchases. Not a month from now, but every day. Well… kind of. Apple showed what amounted to a few short clips from its shows after a celebrity-packed yet awkward presentation that could best be described as “Apple’s upfronts”. But they will earn cash back on their purchases – 3 per cent on Apple purchases, 2 per cent on those with the virtual card and 1 per cent with the physical card.

There’s also a very simple way to check your balance and pay your monthly balance straight from the iPhone.

With the announcement of the new Apple Card this week, some fans may have hoped for the reinvention of how we pay for things. Family Sharing is included in that price.

While the company touted its first credit card as a game changer, some analysts are not so sure. At the event, the Apple TV app and Apple TV channels were also debuted, both of which will be coming to customers in May 2019. While Apple is far behind Xiaomi and Samsung in phone sales, the likes of Paytm and Bhim app are the popular payment apps even for those using iPhones.

On the other hand, no late fees could encourage some cardholders to carry a balance.

What about interest rates?
