Some Apple Card Customers Unable to Make In-Store Purchases for Second Day in a Row [Resolved]

A partial Apple Card outage impacting the ability of some customers to make in-store purchases using their ‌Apple Card‌ with Apple Pay is facing its second day in a row of issues, according to Apple's system status page.

On Monday, Apple said that some customers would be unable to make in-store purchases with their ‌Apple Card‌, and two days later, the issue continues to persist. These new issues follow a widespread Apple Card outage earlier this month that lasted several hours, impacting all ‌Apple Card‌ customers. The current issue facing some ‌Apple Card‌ customers is limited to in-store purchases, but online purchases seem to be working as normal.

‌Apple Card‌ launched in 2019 as a tightly integrated financial service into Apple's products and services. Apple has partnered with Goldman Sachs to be the issuing bank for the card, meaning it's currently limited to just the United States. ‌Apple Card‌ features are integrated into the Wallet app with color-coded spending summaries, no fees, and up to three percent cashback on purchases, paid out daily.

Update: Apple's system status page now says that the issue is resolved and ‌Apple Card‌ is working as normal.

I never really thought I would live to see the day a credit went off line and couldn't be used until Apple.

Pretty pathetic on Apple’s part. Should Apple make their own vehicle, you better be able to drive it even when the servers are offline…

Fortunately, most folks have more than 1 credit card.

“… continues to persist” is redundant. It either continues or it persists. Also there’s a typo in the word “continue”.

Then there would be no incentive to use Apple Pay, which is the point of the card. The physical card is only a convenience when Apple Pay isn't available, but you want to run everything through one credit card. Imagine not being able to have a physical card when you were approved for a line of credit?
I have two credit cards that get 2% back using either the physical card OR Apple Pay, they do not restrict one from another. This is on top of multiple other cards I have that get the same rewards structure using the physical card OR Apple Pay, with better benefits than the Apple Card.

There are plenty of better cards out there than this with the same rewards however you decide to use the card, 1% back is a joke for credit card rewards and has been for about ten years now at least.

This card should get 2% on all purchases, through Apple Pay and the physical card, then whatever higher percentage for Apple and whatever other retailers they decide, which could only apply to Apple Pay.

This card isn’t even the best option for Apple purchases(unless wanting financing) let alone it’s other categories.

The physical card could be made of vibranium, but as long as it only gets 1% back, I won’t even consider requesting one.

I’ll probably never use it, but I got the physical card just because it’s made of metal. I’m sure it would have been a super popular card back in the 70s and 80s when disco clubs were a thing.
