Due to how big of an impact the coronavirus is having on the world’s economy, there are some people who might be out of a job. As such, some might not even be able to make ends meet, such as paying rent, paying for utilities, food, let alone credit card payments. The good news is that Apple is trying to do their part to help.
While Apple Pay is still somewhat limited in terms of availability, it seems that there are enough users who are using the service where according to data gathered by research firm Bernstein, they estimate that by 2025, Apple Pay could be big enough where it could potentially account for 1 in 10 global card transactions.
Apple Pay can be used to make online purchases. It can also be used to make offline purchases at stores where users simply tap their iPhones or Apple Watches at compatible POS terminals. However, what if a retailer or restaurant does not have those terminals installed? Now there is a new way of paying.
It’s a good idea to keep track of your purchases made every month, especially if it’s through your credit card because it is incredibly easy to charge and swipe your card without thinking too much about it. The good news for Apple Card users is that if you’re looking for a neater way to manage your finances, you’re in luck.
Contactless payments sounds like the perfect solution where it is convenient and all users need to do is wave their card or phone against a reader and they’re good to go. However, a recent report from the New York Post is highlighting some potential issues with the system, where some users are now being accidentally charged.
If you’ve ever walked past someone representing the Salvation Army, there’s a good chance you might have seen them rely on their iconic red kettle in which you can drop in cash that will be used towards donations. This has been a tradition for over 100 years now, and it looks like it is about to get a modern and hi-tech makeover.
One of the main security features of the Apple Card that Apple touts is the lack of numbers printed on the card itself. Apart from your name, the Apple Card does not have the credit card number printed on the card, nor its CVV. This is designed to help prevent fraud where despite not having access to the card, those numbers could still be used to authorize purchases.
Apple Pay was launched a while back and was Apple’s way of introducing mobile payments to its customers. It seemed like a good idea where you could use devices like your iPhone and Apple Watch to make payments at places that accepted it. However, while a good idea in theory, in practice it seems that not many people are on board with it.
When you get a new credit card, you almost never get instructions on how to take care of its physical appearance, but Apple decided to offer up some advice on how to care for your Apple Card’s looks, such as warning not to keep it in leather. We understand why because in a recent photo shared on Twitter, it showed how much wear the Apple Card showed after one month.
The Apple Card has been released and many Apple customers are already signing up for it. More recently, Apple published a support document on how you should take care of the Apple Card, which seems a bit odd since other credit card companies don’t really see the need to teach you how to care for a credit card.
If the idea of owning a titanium credit card made by Apple sounds like something you could totally get on board with, you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple has officially announced and confirmed that the Apple Card is now available to all iPhone owners in the US, assuming that they meet the eligibility requirements.
At the start of the year, Apple announced the Apple Card. This was Apple’s take on the credit card with a few changes. It is also being backed by Goldman Sachs, but unfortunately, Apple failed to mention when the card would be launching. We have heard rumors that it could arrive this week, but that is no longer the case.
Earlier this year, Apple announced the Apple Card. With Apple already embracing mobile payments with Apple Pay, it didn’t exactly come as a surprise to learn that the company would be launching their own credit card. There is no word on when the Apple Card will be launched, but now according a report from 9to5Mac, it could be launching as soon as this week.
It has been a few months since retailer JCPenney pulled support for Apple Pay and other contactless payment services from its stores. It was thus no longer possible to pay for purchases using your iPhone or Apple Watch. The retailer appears to have reversed course as it has started accepting Apple Pay transactions once again this month.
