Apple also announced a new way to register for the Apple Card, allowing individuals the option to apply across the web for the Goldman Sachs-backed credit card. This marks another major expansion for the iPhone outside of the Apple Wallet app.
Apple secretly unveiled this new online platform for Apple Card apps last week as first reported by MacRumors. You will use your Apple ID to apply for your Apple Card through this website to see if you are eligible without changing your credit score.
If you are accepted, you will have instant access through Apple Pay to your new Apple Card, and you can also find your Apple Card number in the Wallet app. Apple outlines four of the advantages of the tentpole on the Apple Card Application website:
- Unlimited Daily Cash back with every purchase made.
- No annual, over-the-limit, or late fees.
- Order a free Apple-designed titanium card.
- Apple Card never sells your data to anyone.
The opportunity to apply on the web for the Apple Card comes after Apple unveiled in July a new web platform for online payment of Apple Car balances. This was a noteworthy expansion at the time because when it first launched, Apple Card featured no online connectivity or access outside the Wallet app at all.
Unfortunately, the Apple Card is still only available in the United States, and there is still nowhere to find other frequently requested features such as joint accounts. Apple has however, been slowly but surely extending Apple Car beyond the Wallet app.
