Apple today launched an online dashboard for Apple card users to manage their accounts online. Previously, all conversations for the Apple Card took place via the iPhone’s Wallet app.
This means you can now view your statement and pay your Apple Card bill online for the first time. Before today, if you lost your iPhone, the only way to pay your balance is to call Goldman Sachs telephone support.
Apple introduced the Apple Card in August last year and pitched it as an expected digital credit card experience with “Apple Designed” with rich integration into the iPhone’s Wallet app. However, there is no web presence on the service. This limitation naturally frustrated many customers as web access to banking is considered a table-stack in 2020, and Apple Card refers to the future credit card.
But Apple has clearly heard these complaints and has launched a relatively full-featured web app for 1.0 releases. Apple Card customers will be able to view their current card balance and see how much credit they have available, as well as pay their bills.
The web experience allows users to set up scheduled payment plans, view their past monthly statements, and provide links in support of communication for support questions.
Apple users in the United States will be able to apply for an Apple Card and review their interest rate offer without affecting their credit rating.
Apple Card is available through Apple Pay, offering at least 2% cashback on all Apple Pay transactions. Retailers including Apple, Walgreens and Uber offer high-rate 3% cashback on Apple card purchases. Apple intends to make the most of the interaction through non-communication and digital Apple Pay transactions, the Apple Card also provides a physical Titanium card. Purchases with physical cards are only eligible for 1% cash back.
If the balance is not paid within a month, Apple will not charge a fee, excluding interest payments made on the card.
Recently, Apple has started offering sign up bonuses to attract more Apple Card members. New users can now get a daily cash bonus when they use the card to buy a service from Apple, such as Apple TV + or an Apple Music subscription.
