Game changer.

It appears Apple is one step closer to total world domination, after the brand announced the arrival of an Apple credit card.

Simply titled ‘Apple Card’, the payment system actually works as an app, available to users through the Apple Wallet on their iPhones. According to the tech giant, Apple Card has been created to help customers lead a healthier financial lifestyle, with no annual, late, international or over-the-limit fees, as well as lower interest rates.

It will also come with a physical titanium card for locations that do not yet accept Apple Pay. Unlike traditional cards, however, the Apple credit card won’t feature any numbers, signatures or CVV codes printed on it.

Apparently, users will be able to track the exact location of their spending via GPS, with purchases automatically organised into categories such as food and entertainment. You’ll also be able to earn ‘Daily Cash’ rewards for making purchases with Apple Card.

While the brand is planning on launching the card in the US, CEO Tim Cook said that Apple Card would be available in more than 40 countries by the end of the year.
