The Apple Card has an iPhone-only interface. If you lose that iPhone and need to pay, Apple's recommendation is to use another iOS device (such as an iPad) or call support (not, presumably, with the phone you just lost).
In other words, despite its titanic, futuristic veneer the Apple Card can't afford you what almost every other credit card does: a desktop site available that gives you the flexibility to pay bills or view transactions from any device .
Great, so you can't export your data or see it on a big screen. And this will probably be like Apple's other purchased / billing interface, where you can't select and copy text and the search is very basic, if at all.
The Tape Drive:
Apple will target users for marketing emails and push notifications based on transaction history. "For example, Apple may send a message to your device that is relevant to people who usually buy travel." Apple may have been able to negotiate reduced fees by agreeing to allow advertising to Apple Card users.
Via CM Harrington :
This is the kind of nonsense you get when you become a "services" company … "We do not allow the marketing of push notifications unless they are marketing push alerts ”. No thanks, Tim Apple.
I WANT to have push notifications for my transactions. I don't want Apple to look at my transaction history and decide that I should be marketed at the OD is even scary. That means there's always a daemon looking at my marketing opportunities.
Apparently the message is sent globally and then evaluated on the device to deliver to you based on what the device knows. Yes, sucks that you cannot get transaction notifications and not get marketing messages.
And receiving these marketing messages is going to use up cell data as well.
