Everything you ever wanted to know about the Apple Card

Touch ID Will Reportedly Return To iPhones In 2021 With Apple's New In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor

Apple readies for credit card launch

Apple has started rolling out its Apple Card to selected users. This is highlighted by the fact that the Apple Card application option is present on the screen any time you add a new credit card or debit card to Apple Pay now. Plus, will offer an annual percentage rate between 13.24 percent and 24.24 percent based on your credit score.

As for when the card will become available to more users, Apple said it should happen over the next few weeks.

The card's April ranges from about 13 percent to 24 percent. You're required to have an Apple ID and iCloud account "in good standing" and have two-factor authentication enabled (which is always a good idea). But besides unlocking the iPhone, both are used to authenticate payments using Apple Pay, one of the key parts of Apple's increasingly important services business. For example, you are using certain types of cards to gain the most travel points from a purchase. A broad rollout will follow later in August for all U.S. iPhone owners.

To activate the card, you'll need to tap it with an iPhone.

One area where Apple Card works just like other credit cards is when one is looking to cancel it. The minimum payment on a card is usually a slippery slope towards long-term credit card debt, and this particularly functionality shows you the cost of doing that in real time. The company will keep the Face ID but also resurrect Touch ID in the form of an under the screen fingerprint reader.

There's an interface that users can personalize so that chunks-between 1-3 markers-can be paid off before interest incur. For that, users will have to contact Goldman Sachs support which is a time-consuming process. Bar graphs and category breakdowns let you track how much you've spent from month to month and on categories such as Entertainment and Food & Drink; that isn't unique, but Apple's interface looks a lot more approachable than the dreary norm for such features. All Apple Card notifications and details are all generated and stored on the device.

iPhone 11? We think it's going to be quite boring All of these small, iterative improvements are nice, but they aren't particularly compelling, especially if you have an iPhone XS or an XR.
