Apple is the most innovative corporations in the world. Since the time of the great Steve Jobs, it has been one of those responsible for redefining technology as we know it today.
Trying to continue in that line of innovation, the Cupertino company announced on its website that it has already started the process to offer the new credit card that will literally live on your iPhone.
Apple has already started sending the invitations to some randomly chosen users so that they start with a pre-launch registration to the general public, which will be given this month.
Unlike traditional credit cards, the Apple card will not be issued by a bank or financial entity. It will be issued and backed by Apple itself.
Some of the requirements that the apple company lists to request this card are:
- Be a resident of the United States
- Be of age
It is very important that, if you meet the requirements and want to get your card, you register on the official website. When the service is available to everyone, Apple will send you a notification to start shopping with your Apple card.
If you are one of the lucky ones who already received the invitation, all you have to do is have the latest version of the iOS operating system and go to the Wallet app, then select the “+” icon and choose the Apple card as the default method of payment.
Once this is done, you will only have to complete the fields with your personal information and ready, in a short time, you will receive a confirmation email in which Apple will inform you about the conditions, the interest rate, and your credit limit.
Keep in mind that the virtual card will be activated automatically, but if you want to have a physical version you will have to wait for it to arrive at your address several weeks later.
Apple promises total transparency and security in your finances, in addition to charging the lowest interest in the market and including special promotions in the purchase of any of its products.
The first smart credit card
One of the things that Apple presumes with this new card is the intelligence that the Wallet application has, especially in matters of security.
For example, if you detect any strange expenses, just clicking on the amount will show you a map to indicate the exact location of the place where the purchase was made.
On the other hand, it will have the functions already known as Face ID, Touch ID and a confirmation code for each purchase. The physical card will also be secure since it will not have any number, either forward or reverse.
Also, everything you buy will be categorized by colors, in the “food”, “shopping”, “entertainment” sections.
One of the novelties that are more attractive is that every time you buy with Apple card, a percentage of that purchase will be returned to you in Daily Cash at that moment.
There is no limit to what you can get and you will go directly to your card to spend on whatever you want. You could even deposit it in the account of your choice.
The Apple card app will make a weekly or monthly balance so that you have control over your expenses and pay the least amount of interest possible.
