Beta testing for the much-anticipated Apple Card has been expanded to cover all Apple retail employees, Bloomberg reports.
Apple employees can now apply for an Apple Card using their own personal device and get the same interest rate, which ranges between 13.24% to 24.24%. Once approved, they can immediately start using their iPhones to make purchases via the Apple Pay app. The all-titanium physical card will follow after 2 to 3 weeks. This will coincide with the beta testing of the Wallet app for iOS 12.4.
Screenshots show the Apple Card in action and having full functionality, e.g., bill pay, cash back and support via SMS. Users will be able to see connected bank accounts, credit limits and set their Apple Cards as the default mode of payment for Apple purchases.
We’re expecting the Apple Card to roll out to the public this summer along with the new Wallet app. Apple will start the innovative credit card in the United States, but there are plans to expand to Europe and beyond.
