If you have the Apple Card, you may or may not know how cool and secure this card is. The Apple Card does not have any numbers, and instead, it generates a number for each use. This means that no one can steal your credit card number.

Apple Pay was also created to be a secure way to use your device while making purchases. It is extremely convenient to use and is only made even more efficient by the Apple Card. You can easily add your physical Apple Card to your Apple Pay cards on all of your devices or use your Apple Card right away once you accept the Apple Card offer through your Wallet app on your iPhone.

Set Apple Card as your default payment

If you want your Apple Card to be the primary card you use for Apple Pay, it's very simple to change your default card in your settings.
