Sources have passed information to Bloomberg claiming that Apple will extend the interest-free finance options on the Apple Card to include other products in their catalogue.

In the United States, Apple has been offering interest-free terms on iPhone purchases via their store using the Apple Card. Unfortunately, this hasn’t extended to other Apple products where any interest-free finance terms are offered via a Barclaycard, or via other card providers in regions were the Apple Card isn’t available*.

This is likely to change soon, according to anonymous sources cited in a Bloomberg report. The move makes sense since it was unusual that Apple offered a more wide-reaching finance option through a partner’s card ⁠— even if the terms were more restrictive.

All the rumoured terms offered are the shorter than the 24-month iPhone deal:

Products Term
iPhone 24 months
Mac/iMac, XDR display, iPad/keyboard, Apple pencil 12 months
Apple TV, AirPods, HomePod 6months

*Please note that the finance deals offered on non-apple cards have varying setups that can involve terms such as the deal only being available within a specific time of signing up for the card, or only available over limited promotional periods.

I grew up in a family surrounded by technology, starting with my father loading up games for me on a Commodore 64, and later on a 486. In the late 90's and early 00's I started learning how to tinker with Windows, while also playing around with Linux distributions, both of which gave me an interest for learning how to make software do what you want it to do, and modifying settings that aren't normally user accessible. After this I started building my own computers, and tearing laptops apart, which gave me an insight into hardware and how it works in a complete system. Now keeping up with the latest in hardware and software news is a passion of mine.
