Apple Card disrupted the credit card industry when it launched in 2019 as the first credit card designed for iPhone. Built with customers' financial health in mind, Apple Card is a no-fee credit card that provides customers with a secure and seamless way to manage their finances right from Apple Wallet on iPhone. Apple Card also offers Daily Cash rewards when customers spend online or in-store, including 3 percent Daily Cash back on purchases made directly with Apple and select merchants with Apple Pay, and 2 percent on purchases through Apple Pay.

Apple continues to expand Apple Card, announcing earlier this year that Apple Card Family would allow a family group to share a single card.
