Following Amazon’s plan, Apple also introduced the Apple Card. You can directly apply for the card from your iPhone and once it’s approved you will get it in the form of Digital card.

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.

Apple said It doesn’t track where the purchase is made for the privacy reason and every purchase requires FaceID or TouchID authentication. The physical card will be available but there is no card number, CVV or date. Apple like the minimal approach and they are following the same.
