Apple Card to have notable changes before the official launch


Apple has added a few more notable additions to its much-awaited Apple Card, which is expected to be launched this month.

Apple Card Official Launch

A Bloomberg report states that the Apple Card for iPads will have a separate app, as the Wallet is exclusive only for the iPod touch and the iPhone. Apple Cardholders may opt for financing options on select purchases that allows them to make large purchases and pay it off over a specified time period.

Barclay Visa cards will no longer off Apple rewards, e.g., 3 points earned for every dollar spent and $50 worth of iTunes or Apple Store gift cards for new customers, though financing plans are still available for select Apple products.

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple has stated that the Apple Card will be launched for public use in August for the U.S., but did not disclose an exact date. Rumors have mentioned that the new credit card may become available in the first 2 weeks of August.
