Apple’s titanium credit card is not contactless

A still from The Pathless game on Apple Arcade Apple announces its own credit card

But the product's features make it the credit card equivalent of a Red Delicious: relatively ubiquitous and somewhat bland. The Cupertino also took advantage of the Keynote Pull to launch iOS 12.2, an update you can download right away. Users of the card will earn 2% cash-back on all purchases made through the digital wallet or 3% cash-back on Apple products.

Siri is your spirit guide.

Apple News Plus could appeal to readers who love magazines and want to sample lots of them. The company named it Daily Cash. It will also have games from Annapurna Interactive, Bossa Studios, Finji, Snowman, Giant Squid, Mistwalker Corporation, Klei Entertainment, and many more. Nor have, in fact, most other major U.S. newspapers.

"Apple Card is created to help customers lead a healthier financial life, which starts with a better understanding of their expenditure so they can make smarter choices with their money, and have a better understanding of their financial life", Bailey added. Certainly, as of this writing, several major merchants do accept it (or are in the process of rolling it out), including Target, McDonald's, CVS and Best Buy. The card tracks purchases and provides monthly and weekly spending snapshots and trend reports in the Apple Wallet app at a tap.

The Journal, which commands almost $40 a month for its business and industry coverage, will feature "specially curated" general-interest news on the Apple service. "It's just delightful. And it's ... going to shock all the traditional credit card holders.", Pliniussen also added. There are no late fees. He points out that the Apple Card's rewards are less attractive than the Citigroup Inc benefits which they offer with their Double Cash Card.

According to published reports, half of the revenue from Apple News Plus subscriptions will go to publishers. The physical card earns just 1% back on purchases, and that's just not competitive when the industry gold standard is 1.5%. In addition, Apple Pay's face and touch ID security features are also embedded in the card. For example, rewards from the Apple Card will be paid through the Apple Pay Cash account.

Talking of cash back, though it is a big attraction, it is not groundbreaking.

Another discouraging thing about the card is the fees related to certain transactions. The card itself isn't terribly exciting and the rewards are actually pretty standard. Explain, the company will present its card in the physical version, which would be made of titanium. The issuer won't charge any annual fee, meaning you can simply carry it without even using it and not have to worry about paying a fee at the end of the year. For as little as $9 a month, you get access to Netflix's massive content library as well as all of its great original shows and movies. If Apple can help even one person pay less interest, I'm all for it. Whereas, the Master Card company for the Global Payments Network will cooperate.
