We do not yet have an exact date, but Apple CEO Tim Cook said the Apple card will be available in August on a limited basis, recent reports confirm. Cook announced the news during Apple's Q3 2019 earnings call.
The Apple card is billed by Apple as a "new kind of credit card" designed to help consumers "live a healthier financial life." The card lives in the Wallet app on your iPhone and offers no annual fees along with tempting rewards, including a 3% refund on purchases made directly from Apple.
"The Apple Card is designed to help customers live a healthier financial life, starting with a better understanding of usage, allowing them to make smarter choices with their money, openness to help them understand how much will cost if they want to pay over time and ways to help them pay off the balance, "said Jennifer Bailey, Apple's vice president of Apple Pay.
Although the Apple card is more geared toward digital lifestyle, Apple will also provide users with a minimalist titanium card that has laser etched engravings. One of the major differences is that the physical Apple card has no numbers, CVV security code, signature or expiration date.
A previous report claimed that the Apple card would be available in the first half of August, so it won't be much longer before you can apply.
