Leaked images show titanium Apple Card’s design in the wild

Juli Clover for Juli Clover:

Apple’s upcoming Apple Card credit card is now being tested by both its corporate and retail employees ahead of a planned summer launch, and unsurprisingly, some images of the card have leaked out.

We already know what the Apple Card looks like thanks to Apple’s promotional materials, but it’s still interesting to see the design in person, with iMore sharing some photos provided by an Apple employee.

Lory Gil for iMore:

Our source, who prefers to remain unnamed, shared some exclusive photos with us, including its actual weight.

As you can see from the pictures, the Apple Card weighs in at almost exactly a half ounce or about 14.75 grams.

MacDailyNews Take: We’re going to save a lot more weight than that in the number of cards we leave at home after we finally get our Apple Cards!

  1. FTA: “It looks like Apple and Goldman Sachs are offering credit lines to a wide range of consumers, which could potentially be very helpful for someone trying to build credit for the first time or try to reestablish good credit.”

    So much for privacy. Apple card reports you to credit agencies just like all the rest.

    1. I doubt that Apple could have excluded credit agencies from sharing. As an aside, any credit agency is also a major spy apparatus in the commercial realm from which all major gov. spy agencies steal data to develop better profiles.

      1. How do you know another person’s credit worthiness????

        News flash: Experian was hacked. Personal data was stolen from people with excellent credit, and it was a nightmare for them to clean up their credit ratings afterwards.

        We now see you don’t give a fsck about others, but Apple should. Apple pretends it cares about your privacy but apparently while marrying itself with GoldExtractor Sachs, it hasn’t done anything to fix one of the biggest scams in finance, which to have non-independent rating companies find every reason to push everyone into a more profitable rating for the banks they work for. With practically no recourse for consumers. There is no published objective formula that these snakes use for accounting. Weak self governance like GAAP doesn’t even apply. Crony capital at its finest.

        Anybody who stores people’s financial data needs to be transparent, secure, and accountable. Experian instead got off scot free for their atrocious lack of security. Now with data fed to it from Apple. Apple could have been its own credit rating company and cut out the snakes.

  2. I’m definitely interested. The notion of getting cash back immediately vs. waiting a whole year is good. The cash back terms look as good or better than my Costco card.
    The only concern I have is that vendors will not recognize it as a real card. Not an issue in most shops since the customer puts the card in the reader. But for places like restaurants I can imagine there could be some confusion.

  3. Obviously, the Apple Card will be great for security, since it uses the tokenized method for payment, without revealing the actual card number, etc. I LOL at people who get credit cards because they ‘look nice’ and have ‘neat physical features’ like remember your picture on a card awhile ago? Or the cool looking transparent cards? No wonder people are in debt and cannot handle it well like those of us who use credit responsibly.
