Apple Card: five key points about the tech giant’s new payment solution

Apple Card: five key points about the tech giant’s new payment solution

The alternative, swiping the titanium card, only gets you 1% cash back.

The three newspapers participating in Apple News Plus are the Los Angeles Times, Toronto Star and The Wall Street Journal - the latter a surprise to many industry watchers. I don't want Apple to devour the world, but I think other companies spend too much time copying Apple's products and not enough time copying its culture. Another big selling point: The Apple Card has no annual, late, international, or over-the-limit fees. Interest rates will be lower, and customers will not be charged with penalties for missing a payment.

Revolut's premium card pays 1% cashback on card transactions made outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and 0.% within, for example.


Revenue from Apple's services - which include the App Store, iCloud and content businesses such as Apple Music - grew 24 percent to $37.1 billion in fiscal 2018. "We're committed to supporting quality journalism, and with Apple News+, we want to celebrate the great work being done by magazines and news outlets", said Lauren Kern, editor-in-chief of Apple News.

Apple has released a new version of iOS that supports the News+ subscription service and Siri casting capabilities for Apple TV. Many big-name magazines are on board, hoping Apple brings them new paid readers. He also reiterated that there are better rewards out there, particularly for people with strong credit. And it boasts some intriguing benefits, like no fees and a daily rewards program. "There is a healthy market there, so from that perspective there is nothing unique". The Animoji app from Apple allows users to use their face to control an animated emoji on their device, and talk, and record it all to send as a message.

When the Apple Arcade launches this fall, subscribers can choose from cool games such as Where Cards Fall, The Pathless, LEGO Brawls, Hot Lava, Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm, Beyond a Steel Sky, Mr. Turtle and more. And while Costco does, you can only use Visa cards there; the Apple Card runs on the Mastercard payment network.


Other well-known magazines in the app include The Atlantic and big names from magazine powerhouses Conde Nast and Hearst, including Bon Appetit, Elle, Esquire, The New Yorker, O: The Oprah Magazine, Vanity Fair, Vogue, and Wired. "With the success and momentum of Apple Pay, we've learned a lot about credit cards".

Apple Pay users will now be allowed to fund money transfers using their Apple Pay Cash balance or a debit card. The stock has risen 9% in March and 20.2% year-to-date as of March 25. Also, there is going to be about 100 games that will be available right away and more to be added at a later stage. Users can also turn on automatic updates so that their phone always has the most recent software on it. As long as you make your purchases via Apple Pay, you'll earn a rich rate back on everything you buy. All the same, Apple users often enjoy the seamlessness of having the information at their fingertips. With Apple's hardware sales said to be starting to slow down, the company is likely looking to pick up new momentum by selling subscriptions to its online services.
