CEO of Goldman Sachs David Solomon has suggested that the launch of Apple Card is "the most successful credit-card launch ever."
According to CNBC, Solomon gave the news during a conference call with investors on Tuesday:
There are no details to speak of when it comes to how successful the launch has actually been, whilst it's possible that Apple may have something to say about the launch at its earnings call in a couple of weeks, it's probably too early at this stage to expect figures on the updates.

The news will likely come as strong encourgament to those sat around the table at both Apple and GS, who have partnered to launch the Apple Card. Back in August, we reviewed the Apple Card, here's what we had to say about it.
