Customers begin receiving their titanium Apple Cards

Apple Card completely rethinks everything about the credit card. It represents all the things Apple stands for. Like simplicity, transparency, and privacy. It builds on the incredible ease and security that millions of people love about Apple Pay. And it’s the first card that actually encourages you to pay less interest.

Joe Rossignol for MacRumors:

Following the Apple Card’s rollout to a limited number of customers in the Wallet app earlier this week, some are beginning to receive their physical, titanium Apple Card in the mail for use at stores that do not accept contactless payments.

The Apple Card weighs around 14.75 grams, making it slightly heavier than the Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card but lighter than an American Express Gold.

The physical Apple Card, made out of titanium, features a clean design with an Apple logo, a chip, and a name. There’s no card number or expiration date on the card, nor is there a CVV on the back. Instead, these details are stored in the Wallet app for added security in the event the card is lost or stolen. The back of the Apple Card also has a minimalistic design with embossed Goldman Sachs and Mastercard logos and a magstripe.

MacDailyNews Take: Banks not named Goldman Sachs are going to rue the day they declined to work with Apple Card.

  1. I got mine today and went shopping. It was virtually friction-less to activate. It was all done with the iPhone. All of the people in line and the employees at the liquor store I went to wanted to see it and hold it. The Apple Card was it’s own show.

    1. You use Pay with the card to get 2% cash back instead of 1% on most other cards. It’s not about the physical card which only pays 1%. You get the card in order to never use the physical card but to use Pay for the 2% cash back and 3% cash back whenever you buy anything directly from Apple AND use Pay.

  2. I was excited to get the  credit card until…… Turns out that you can to link your account to budget apps like quicken, You Need a Budget, etc. That is a show stopper for me.
