Apple Starts Preview Rollout of the Apple Card

The Apple Card is here. Well, almost.

The company’s new credit card built in partnership with Goldman Sachs is being rolled out to a select a number of users in the United States today. The new credit card will be available to all iPhone users later this month.

Apple Card is obviously Apple’s own-branded credit card that is heavily integrated into the iPhone. If you don’t have an iPhone, you can’t even apply to get the card, to begin with. I suggest reading our earlier article about Apple Card if you don’t already know what it is. Either way, Apple is starting the preview rollout today, and it’s selected a random group of users to start the preview with. You will need to submit some personal details like your income and your social security number, which is then checked by Goldman Sachs and you are notified whether your application has been accepted. The whole application can be done through the Wallet app on iOS. You will, however, need iOS 12.4 for this to work.

Apple has released a whole bunch of tutorial videos to show off how the Apple Card works, and that will be essential for new users. The method to activate your titanium Apple Card that comes with the card itself is pretty cool, by the way:

Apple isn’t saying exactly when the Apple Card will be available to all users yet, though considering we are almost 10 days into August, that shouldn’t be too far away.
