Apple Card is a new form of digital credit card. Apple is partnering with Goldman Sachs to make its own credit card due out this summer — no plastic required. Apple Card will be available on all iOS devices in the Wallet app. It has a rewards system that adds 2% of any Apple Pay purchase amount directly back to the Apple wallet as cash. The deposits are made daily, and the reward goes up to 3% for purchases of Apple products and down to 1% for purchases made with the physical card.
An optional physical card is available, but in typical Apple fashion, it's a laser-etched titanium rectangle.
A new ad-free subscription gaming service, Apple Arcade will feature over 100 new and exclusive games, including original releases from renowned creators. Apple Arcade will bring games to the App Store’s more than 1 billion gaming customers. Apple Arcade is the perfect complement to the already enormously popular catalog of free games on the App Store, making iOS the premier gaming platform for players of all ages.
