It will be Goldman's first consumer credit card, although the banking giant recently launched its Marcus payments app. Apple plans to offer fees that are "among the lowest in the industry". "Thousands of Apple employees are using Apple Card every day in our beta test". The card will be blank except for an Apple Logo and the laser-etched name of the cardholder.

After more than two months in development, the iOS 12.2 (build number 16E227) software update is here to add yet another layer of new features, improvements, as well as bug and security fixes to Apple's latest and greatest iOS 12 mobile operating system for supported iPhone and iPad devices.

Customers can apply for the card from their iPhone and receive a decision in minutes, Apple said. Currently, Apple support hasn't made any statements regarding why the Apple News App is not working for users.

The digital card can be used anywhere Apple Pay is accepted. While Apple services generally force users to operate within Apple-manufactured hardware, one notable thing about Apple TV+ is that it will be accessible through external streaming devices like Roku and the Amazon Fire TV Stick.

In addition to its three entertainment offerings, Apple has also augmented its Apple Pay service on iPhones and the Apple Watch with a virtual credit card launched with Goldman Sachs. The difference is that once you you are approved, you have the card immediately in digital form in your Wallet app, with the physical version arriving later via post and free of charge.
