Expectations are slowly building up for the launch of the Apple Card in the United States. Meanwhile, Apple has filed trademarks for its financial product in Hong Kong, Europe and Canada.
Star has mentioned that trademarks usually last for about 10 months, which means that the earliest launch in Canada may be in the summer or spring of 2020. CIPO or Canadian Intellectual Property Office has received documents relating to the brand this week.
Apple Card has received a steady stream of interest since it was announced in March. It is the first credit card that is not managed by a financial institution and it does not require a physical credit card. Users can pay for goods or services using their Apple Wallet and get support in the app and other features.
Apple has disclosed relevant information about their Apple cards, including interest, approval ratings, rewards, and others in their official website.
