Here’s what we know so far, as well as what we don’t know.
What is known about the Apple credit card: the credit card will work worldwide, and will offer 2% cash back on purchases made through Apple Pay. Purchases through the physical card will yield 1% cash back.
The physical card will not include a card number, CVV, expiration date, or signature, per the March 25 press conference. There will also be “no fees,” low interest rates, and a simpler application process, though the press conference did not go into detail regarding what those interest rates would be, or what the required credit score will be for acceptance.
Per The Verge, the Apple credit card’s reward system will not be a traditional “points system,” but rather will immediately process cash back into your account, to spend or put towards previous purchases. Additionally, MasterCard will handle payment processing. There will be no penalties on the card for missed payments.
