However, using the physical version of the card will give users an "infinitesimal" one percent cash back on purchases.

Why 10 videos? Shouldn't using a credit card be intuitive by now since most of us have been shackled with one since early adulthood?

Recently, it released the iOS 12.4 update of its Wallet app to enable iPhones and iPads work with Apple Card. "A payments wheel shows how much interest will be charged if you only pay part of the balance", Shannon Liao writes for CNN Business. A credit card expert, however, stated that the Apple credit card might not prove to be an instant game-changer simply because of the reason that other established credit card brands offer a range of benefits. The card inside the Wallet app will also change its hue depending on your spending habits.

The Apple Card also offers cash rewards, which is quite a surprising news. The only information required is an address, and it should take about 2-3 days to arrive.

But applying for new cards generally means a hard inquiry on your credit score-and getting rejected isn't great for anyone trying to build or fix their credit.

Indeed, Apple has foregone the usual industry route of enticing customers with a fat sign-up bonus and a lucrative rewards program (though Apple's is "compelling" in its own right), choosing instead the perks mentioned above and a "no fees" stance. Users can also order another titanium card for free. That, and there's no stated timeline of when you might receive the physical card either.

This makes the card more secure since nobody can steal your card number, but it kind of makes things harder if you're ordering something online and you're used to typing your card info.
