    1. I know, right? That’s like requiring a person to be holding a baseball bat when they stand at home plate with the opposing pitcher about to throw a baseball. Crazy!

      1. Seriously, though. The article is correct, because the Apple card is intended primarily to be used as the credit line behind an Apple Pay account. If you use the physical card, you get the lowest cash-back percentage (1%), and hopefully more and more places will accept Apple Pay.
        If you aren’t planning to primarily use Apple Pay, the Apple Card doesn’t really make sense over other cards.
