A new support page details how you should clean your Apple Card

A new support page details how you should clean your Apple Card Apple Card takes 'digital-banking battle' to new level

After that, Apple details how to clean the card. But the page also reveals something surprising: keeping your card in a leather wallet or jeans pocket is a really bad idea.

The Apple Card has a white finish with the credit card holder's name and the Apple logo laser-etched into it. Apple claims its credit card is made with a "multi-layer coating process that's added to the titanium base material".

After doing a soft, invite-only launch earlier this month, Apple on Tuesday announced that it's expanding applications for its credit card to anyone in the U.S. who's interested.

The Apple Card is such a delicate piece of technological wonder it apparently needs its own cleaning instructions.

"Moisten a soft, microfiber cloth with isopropyl alcohol and gently wipe the card". Maintaining the white color of the card is more hard, though, because of how it reacts to different materials.

THE OFFSPRING + SUM 41 Announce Canadian Tou
Two-time Juno Award winning and Grammy Award nominated Canadian rockers Sum 41 have been touring extensively since 1996. The single peaked at #1 on Sirius XM Octane and has been added to numerous streaming playlists.

And remember, don't wipe the thing on your jeans or leather jacket. That means that if you want to keep your Apple Card looking pristine, you'll have to treat it a little more carefully than other credit cards.

Available via the Apple Wallet app on the iPhone 6 or later running iOS 12.4, Apple's credit card is managed entirely via the Wallet app. Doing either is probably going to damage it. Officials with the tech giant say you shouldn't store it with your other credit cards! Now, it looks like Apple might be facing a similar discolouration debacle. Leather in particular was always going to be high on that list.

The Apple Card is a relatively plain matt white credit card made of titanium, which was created to stand out against other credit cards.

Finally, loose in your bag isn't the way to go either - loose change, keys and potentially abrasive objects could scratch it and ruin its prettiness. Those are all common sense, but Apple should really be making it very clear you can't use a leather wallet.
