How Will Apple's News And Video Products Affect The Media Industry?

The unusual thing is that in order to muscle in on a competitive industry, issuer Goldman Sachs has tossed aside numerous features that make the card business lucrative for banks in the first place.

This being the Cupertino company though, this wasn't your normal credit card, combining "the most beautifully designed card ever", made of titanium with just your name laser etched on it. The Apple Card also offers a comprehensive and more precise range of its rewards program, unlike other existing credit cards.

While that is overstating it quite a bit, the move is an interesting one from Apple and highlights its plan to pull users into a bunch of different services to keep them leaving its iPhone user base.

Perhaps the most notable fix: Apple patched a flaw that could allow malicious applications to access the microphone on your iPhone and record you and those around you. However, what makes the Apple Card stand taller than other mobile payment options are the various features that come with it. It also lets you set up more frequent payments if you want to pay more often then once a month.

The Apple Card supports users in their financial aspect, leading them to a healthier financial lifestyle. Apple said the Apple card will attract "no late fees, no annual fees, no worldwide fees, and no over limit fees and lower interest rates".

Should UK banks be anxious? Cashback will be higher for purchases made at Apple's own stores such as the App Store, and lower for those stores which do not accept Apple Pay, both online and instore.

"It will have no global fees or over-limit fees, and, perhaps most notably, no fees for missing a payment", the company's representative said.


As David Brear from fintech consultancy 11:FS tweeted: "This isn't a drill banks".

Similar to how banks and credit card companies ditched signatures as security chips became the norm, we could see card numbers disappear too. To help you decide if Apple's credit card fits your financial needs, the following are some of its critical details. BitPay integrate BTC spending in a credit card setup. However, the fact that it's a credit card adds to the grave singing debt addiction status in the United States. There will be the cashback incentives on using of the cards.

And while Apple Card of course will work exclusively within the iPhone maker's sprawling ecosystem, one of the lesser-talked about effects so far of Apple's introduction of this product is the effect it could have outside of Apple.

"We've been doing this, and more, for two years". Users won't even have to make a call; they can simply message the issuer from their iPhone.

Lewis is optimistic about Apple's skill to develop the Journal's readership regardless of many opponents being "down on" the brand new service.

Major newspaper publishers who sat out the launch may feel like they can find readers better on their own, or be wary of the terms of the revenue split with Apple, said Rick Edmonds, a media analyst at the Poynter Institute.
