The card expands the company's Apple Pay services, marrying the physical card to a virtual one and integrating both with the iPhone.

Apple's new credit card is a remarkable thing.

"I'd recommend leaving the titanium card at home and carry another card that gets you 2 percent cash back for those times you can't use Apple Pay", J.D. Powers' Miller suggested, "but a lot of people are going to want to carry the card because it's different". Protected exclusively by the user's fingerprint and face ID, the Apple Card hosts no number and has a set of complex algorithms working to make it one of the most secure systems.

The card, which is at present only available in the U.S., will have a physical and digital version and acts as an extension of Apple Pay. Not only this, but Apple has also introduced Rewards Points with their cards, which is named "Daily Cash". And it really is cash. It's created to prompt you to use your iPhone to make payments.

Apple launched its new subscription service Apple News+ a couple of days ago.

Activating or pairing the Apple Card is very similar like pairing your AirPods with iPhone ie; just bring your card closer to an unlocked iPhone and the card pops up and will activate same as like AirPods.

The move comes as Apple shifts to emphasise digital content and other services to offset a pullback in the once-sizzling smartphone market, and with many news organisations struggling to monetise their online services. It will also have games from Annapurna Interactive, Bossa Studios, Finji, Snowman, Giant Squid, Mistwalker Corporation, Klei Entertainment, and many more. According to the company, Apple Card has been made keeping privacy in mind. Credit card debt is a huge, huge problem and too many massive banks make too much money for anything to truly change this horribly anti-consumer industry. It looks like most of the games Apple showed off aren't actually exclusive to Apple Arcade, despite what the company's presentation led us to believe.

On the other hand, a high interest rate also means that Apple plans to make its card widely available.

How to get an Apple Card?

Here's a rundown on what Apple unveiled - what's good, what's not so good and what we still don't know. It can be found in the Wallet app, allowing consumers to view and track their spending.

As you can probably tell, none of that required any advanced hacking skills to accomplish, which raises the question of why hasn't Apple taken measures to prevent people from doing it. The company has partnered with Goldman Sachs for the Apple Cards.

As part of the security scheme, each Apple Card has a unique card number that is stored in the "Secure Element" of an iPhone.

The bad: The service will only be available on Apple devices, including iPhones, iPads, Macs and Apple TVs. With the card service, Apple can further diversify its income streams by tapping the transaction fees arising from each transaction using the card.
