All customers can now apply for Apple Card through the Wallet app on iPhone in minutes and start using it right away with Apple Pay in stores, in apps and on websites. The card has been announced a while ago, but the availability to everyone and some new earning options were revealed today. This launch follows the Apple Card preview earlier this month, during which a limited number of customers were invited to apply early. This is a Mastercard in a partnership with Goldman Sachs and is integrated with the Wallet app.
It was previously announced that the card would earn 2% Daily Cash every time they use Apple Card with Apple Pay, and 3% Daily Cash on all purchases made directly with Apple, including at Apple Stores, apple.com, the App Store, the iTunes Store and for Apple services. Apple Card is extending 3% Daily Cash to more merchants and apps. Starting today, customers will receive 3% Daily Cash when they use Apple Card with Apple Pay for Uber and Uber Eats.
The card has some decent earning options, but categories are limited and you can still do better with other cards overall. It might be an exciting card for those who are invested in the Apple ecosystem just because it’s an Apple card. But most people are probable better off looking elsewhere.
