Apple Card UI spawns a new Savings facility
iPhone users (mostly in the US) have been able to make their payments, ID storage and even their credit cards Apple for years. Now, they can also add savings - or Savings, rather, to this list. The Cupertino giant aims to make their customers' financial lives even "healthier" with this new product.
Apple Card owners or co-owners should be able to set one of these new accounts, issued by Goldman Sachs Bank USA, under their name. Their Daily Cash (or cashback, paid at 1-3% depending on what is bought) will then automatically be shunted into the resulting account unless the holder turns this setting off in the app.
Users can also add more of their existing funds to their Apple Savings from any other bank they use, so long as they can link the 2 accounts in question in the app. However, they might want to hold off on doing so until Apple actually reveals the interest rate at which it says these deposits can "grow" over time.
Apple Savings is depicted as built directly into the OEM's Wallet app, meaning that a user may not need one of its fancy physical Cards to use the service. It has been announced as available from now, subject to eligibility requirements Apple has yet to outline in full.
