"I don't want to know which famous people Apple has signed up". That's particularly true given that the company has previously expressed its surprise at the slow growth of mobile payments. So if you're not into optimizing rewards by juggling multiple cards to earn higher rates on specific purchases, the Apple Card could work well for you. Noting that Apple Pay's "acceptance is spreading but far from ubiquitous", PC Magazine stated that "essentially, how much cash back you earn depends on how quickly Apple conquers the mobile payments market, and how often you keep in mind to whip out your phone instead of your credit card in the checkout line".
The Company said its credit card aims to help users spot spending habits. Apple News+ was the first of the newly announced services that's available for customers to try out, now limited to the U.S. and Canada only.
"Apple Card builds on the tremendous success of Apple Pay and delivers new experiences only possible with the power of iPhone", said Jennifer Bailey, Apple's vice president of Apple Pay.
Here's a rundown on what Apple unveiled - what's good, what's not so good and what we still don't know. The physical version of the card has no numbers, and the digital version lives in your Apple Wallet on your phone, where it's protected by Face ID or Touch ID so even if someone steals your phone they won't be able to use the card to buy things.
As part of the security scheme, each Apple Card has a unique card number that is stored in the "Secure Element" of an iPhone.
Demand for the iPad devices have already tapered off earlier and might just have settled down but at a much lower rung than what it used to be during the initial years of its launch. You will have to send message for support and you will also get support from this. Consumers will enjoy a $2 cash back every time they spend, although that rate increases to a $3 cash back if they make purchases from Apple.
The "no late fees" feature on the cards was added to help customers avoid extra financial burden from credit card bill payments.
The new content will be available on an upgraded Apple TV app, which will be on smart television sets and third-party platforms including Roku and Amazon's Fire TV. This card will run in places where Apple Pay will not support.
Amobi noted that it may take years to see if the Apple subscription does well for media companies, regardless of whether more newspapers join. More mature and pragmatic than its older millennial forbearers, the cohort is savvy with both finances and technology, survival skills that members gained after watching siblings and parents suffer through the 2008 recession.
The unknown: It's not entirely clear how much news you're getting for your money.
