When it announced the Apple Card earlier this year, Apple said that its credit card would arrive sometime this summer. Now we've got a slightly more precise launch timeframe to look forward to.
Apple Card will launch in August. Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed the news today during Apple's Q3 2019 earnings call, adding that the card is currently being tested by Apple employees.
Apple is partnering with Goldman Sachs and Mastercard on the launch of Apple Card. You'll be able to sign up for Apple Card on your iPhone and get it within minutes. All of your info will be inside your Wallet app, making it easier to find out how much you owe on the card, what you spent, and where you've been spending.
As you might expect, you can pay with your Apple Card using Apple Pay at terminals that accept it. If you find yourself somewhere without a tap-to-pay terminal, you'll be able to use a physical Apple Card. As we saw last month, the physical Apple Card is made of titanium and features your name laser-etched on the front of the card.
Another major feature of Apple Card is Daily Cash. These are rewards that you'll get at the end of every day on your Apple Cash card. You'll get 2% Daily Cash with purchases made using your Apple Card, 3% on purchases made direct from Apple, and 1% on purchases made with your physical Apple Card.
What do you think of the Apple Card? Now that we know it's coming next month, are you thinking about signing up for one?
