“Thousands of Apple employees are using Apple Card every day in our beta test. And we plan to begin the rollout of Apple Card in August.

When Apple fanatics get their cards, it will be fully integrated with their iPhones and other devices. It will serve as a digital card inside the Apple Wallet working in tandem with Apple Pay. The physical titanium card will be mailed to users via the mail for free.

The tech giant reassures there will be ” a new level of privacy and security” with the Apple Card. The Goldman Sachs backed card will not feature a CVV code, card number, expiration date. Instead, it will rely on “advanced security technologies” like Face ID and Touch ID and unique transaction codes. Each transaction will generate unique numbers.
