Apple introduced the mighty Apple card, which indeed is its credit card. Apple’s credit card. Just like banks have their cards. The smartphone brand did not just release a platinum card, it also released some plans of its own. While for now, the option for using or owning a card depends on you. As most of the users don’t have access to it yet. Only a few have got hold of the card. Well if you want Apple card right now? Just use your iPhone.
Although most of the users did not get the option yet, as Apple did not fully release it to the public. It’s beta type version just rolled out. And this is only making the craze. So far good for apple.
