Apple Launches, Next Generation Credit Card, Name: "Apple Card"

Here's everything Apple announced at its March 25 Special Event

One user who checked out the service, iOS developer Dave DeLong, posted screenshots of the subscription sign-up page on Twitter, noting that it does not link to a privacy policy or contain information on how to cancel a subscription, both of which are required by Apple's guidelines.

When will the Apple Card be available? Specifically, users will simply lay the card near to their iPhone and it will be recognized.

Pricing for Apple TV+ hasn't been announced, but Apple said the service would be available in more than 100 countries.

According to John-Kurt Pliniussen from the Smith School of Business at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., credit card companies will start competing with Apple from now on in order to match what the tech giant is offering.

Apple is also quick to specify that there will be "no ads, ad tracking or additional purchases" - which will help distinguish it from the exploitative end of free-to-play games often found on mobile. "Daily Cash is added to customers" Apple Cash card each day and can be used for purchases using Apple Pay, toward their Apple Card balance or to send to friends and family in Messages. For Apple products, it's three per cent. The interest rate charged will depend on the credit scores of the users.

The great thing about the Apple Card is that, compared to traditional credit cards, it will not have any late, worldwide usage or yearly fees.

Apple Card is unlikely to come to Australia any time soon, but it will be interesting to see if it has the desired result for the iPhone maker.

What do you need to do to qualify for an Apple Card?

Some credit cards offer cash back, some Avios, others vouchers.

It isn't clear whether user subscriptions will expire before May 28, or whether users will be refunded if they don't receive a full month's worth of service before the cutoff. That means for most transactions, customers will only get the 1% cash back for using the physical card. While many details were supplied during the media shindig, more details are surfacing. Getting 3% cash back on your numerous Apple purchases would be a big boon, and for all other purchases, you're already well accustomed to waiving your phone over the point-of-sale device at checkout.

Jennifer Bailey VP Apple Pay. "Even if you miss a payment, we won't charge you a penalty rate like most banks do". It is typically possible to pay money off whenever you like of course, but it isn't always easy to see what's coming and going.

With traditional cobrand credit cards, retailers often negotiate lower swipe fees, as well as revenue and loss-sharing agreements based on the success of the program. The card will also have no fees of any kind: No late fees, global fees or annual fees.

Yes, but it isn't plastic. There's a digital version as well as a physical version of the Apple Card.

The Apple Card is created to offer simplicity.
