Apple card

This is a branded bank card that is designedmake using a credit card simpler and more efficient. To receive a card, you only need a smartphone. Sign up for Apple Wallet, add a card, and in just a few minutes you can use it. You can also get a physical titanium card - it does not have a number, CVV code, expiration date and other usual information.

You can pay for purchases wherever Apple Pay works. At the same time, the company promises not to charge any fees, reduce interest rates and “fines” for late payments.

Moreover, the Daily Cash cashback system will operate: 1% when paying with a physical card, 2% when using Apple Pay and 3% for purchases in Apple stores.

And through the application you can not only view your balance, but also track purchases and manage finances using AI: the system can group costs by category, create charts and graphs.

Apple Card will start to make out in the summer.
