Apple Employees Starting to Receive Apple Cards (Photos)

Mobile leaker Ben Geskin shared images on Twitter of the consumer packaging of the new Apple credit card coming from Apple. Geskin reports some Apple employees are already starting to get the card which was announced in March.

In the images, the actual Apple employee's name was replaced by Geskin's to protect their identify. The packaging shows a similar pairing process as the AirPods, with instructions to "Wake iPhone and hold here."

The ‌Apple Card‌ resides both digitally in your iPhone for Apple Pay payments but also comes in a physical form made entirely of titanium. The card is laser etched with your name and does not have the card number or expiration date printed on it. Instead, those numbers will be available on your iPhone's Wallet App. There's still a traditional magstripe on the back, along with a built-in chip for chip and pin purchases. The ‌Apple Card‌ is expected to launch this summer.

How heavy is the card?


Just as heavy as any other credit card when you load it with debt ;)

I’m totally getting one of these, and I’m fully aware that I’m a sad little fanboy.

This feels like an iTunes Ping moment.

I can't believe the level of fanboyism for some folks with this. I get 2% on all purchases on a Visa, which is taken everywhere unlike MasterCard. Physical or Apple Pay, doesn't matter, 2% all the time.

Also I don't get why some people are so hyped about the look of it when the the whole point of Apple Pay, to get the 2% CB, is that you don't have to carry a card around. It's just a flip'n card that other CC's have better benefits. Numbers folks, do that actual math.

Can’t wait! I pretty much only use ApplePay, so the daily cash back will be fantastic.
