Technology giant Apple announced on Monday its new credit card, Apple Card, which is described as an innovative, new kind of credit card created by Apple and designed to help customers lead a healthier financial life. Apple reported that the Apple Card is built into the Apple Wallet app on iPhone, and offers customers a familiar experience with Apple Pay and the ability to manage their card right on iPhone.
“Apple Card transforms the entire credit card experience by simplifying the application process, eliminating fees, encouraging customers to pay less interest and providing a new level of privacy and security. Available in the US this summer, Apple Card also offers a clearer and more compelling rewards program than other credit cards with Daily Cash, which gives back a percentage of every purchase as cash on customers’ Apple Cash card each day.”
While sharing more details about the credit card, Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s Vice President of Apple Pay, stated:
“Apple Card builds on the tremendous success of Apple Pay and delivers new experiences only possible with the power of iPhone. Apple Card is designed to help customers lead a healthier financial life, which starts with a better understanding of their spending so they can make smarter choices with their money, transparency to help them understand how much it will cost if they want to pay over time and ways to help them pay down their balance.”
“Apple is partnering with Goldman Sachs and Mastercard to provide the support of an issuing bank and global payments network. As a newcomer to consumer financial services, Goldman Sachs is creating a different credit card experience centered around the customer, which includes never sharing or selling data to third parties for marketing and advertising. Mastercard will provide cardholders the ability to shop at merchants around the globe.”
