Apple Card Rumored to Face ‘Oppo Card’ Competitor

The Chinese smartphone maker Oppo appears to be preparing “Oppo Card” as a rival to Apple Card, following similar moves by Apple competitors Google, Samsung, and Huawei.



According to Chinese trademark filings seen by DroidMaze, Oppo has filed to trademark “Oppo Card.” The trademark is filed under international classifications, meaning that the company hopes to use the “Oppo Card” brand overseas.

Apple released the ‌Apple Card‌ in 2019 as a credit card that is linked to Apple Pay and built directly into the Wallet app. Apple is partnering with Goldman Sachs for the card, which is optimized for ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌ but will still work like a traditional credit card for all of your transactions. ‌Apple Card‌ also offers a number of features such as Daily Cash, spending tracking, purchase notifications, an engraved titanium physical card, and more.

Following the launch of ‌Apple Card‌, leaked images showed that Google was developing its own physical and virtual debit card in partnership with banks in the United States, featuring the ability to add or remove funds from the card after connecting a bank account.



Last year, Samsung launched “Samsung Pay Card” in the captive market of the UK, where ‌Apple Card‌ is currently unavailable, with a comparable offering of cashback, instant spend notifications, and software integration. Huawei has also launched “Huawei Card,” featuring a very similar model to ‌Apple Card‌ with a physical and virtual card, cashback, and other perks.

Given the increasing number of smart card options from major tech companies, it is likely that Oppo Card will seek to compete with cashback and software integrations, but little else is known about the finance product at this early stage.

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.

Apple Card Outage Persists for Several Hours

If your Apple Card has not been working today, you are not alone. Apple’s credit card has been suffering from a widespread outage that has persisted for several hours, according to Apple’s system status page.



“Users may not be able to manage their ‌Apple Card‌, make payments, and may not see recent transactions,” the page reads.

Launched in the United States in August 2019, the ‌Apple Card‌’s key features include Wallet app integration with color-coded spending summaries, no fees, and up to three percent cashback on purchases, paid out daily. A physical, titanium ‌Apple Card‌ is also available for use at retail locations that do not accept contactless payments.

We’ll update this story when the outage is marked as resolved.

PSA: Apple Card Owners Won’t Be Able to Combine Existing Accounts Until July

Following its announcement last month, Apple today officially flipped the switch to allow parents to share their Apple Card with their teenagers or friends and the ability for spouses to co-own a single ‌Apple Card‌ account. However, one notable feature that didn’t get released today is the ability for two separate ‌Apple Card‌ accounts to be merged into one.


Apple announced the feature last month but didn’t specifically pin a release date. Now, in a new support document, Apple says that starting later on in July, users will be able to merge two existing ‌Apple Card‌ accounts into one, and in doing so, be able to combine their credit limits.

Coming July 2021: You will be able to invite another ‌Apple Card‌ owner to combine credit limits and form one co-owned account.1

The ability to share an ‌Apple Card‌ with iCloud Family members above 13 years old and the ability to co-own an ‌Apple Card‌ were released today as part of the iOS 14.6 update.

Apple Details How to Share an Apple Card and Add a Co-Owner

Apple today released iOS 14.6, with it bringing support for Apple Podcasts subscriptions and new support for Apple Card Family. Announced last month, ‌Apple Card‌ Family allows families to share a single ‌Apple Card‌ with users above 13 years old with the ability to set a spending limit.


Following its release, Apple has shared two how-to videos on how exactly to share an Apple Card with your teenager or friend and how to co-own a single Apple Card with your significant other. The process for sharing an ‌Apple Card‌ with a friend or teenager is enabled within the Wallet app on iOS 14.6 or later and requires that you be in an iCloud Family with the person you wish to share the card with.

Last month, Apple also announced the ability for couples to co-own a single ‌Apple Card‌, allowing them to build their credit score together. The process is similar to sharing an ‌Apple Card‌ with your teenager or friend but requires you to share your spouse’s annual income.

‌Apple Card‌ Family is available today with the iOS 14.6 update.

Apple Shares Details on How Apple Card Family Works

Apple introduced the new Apple Card Family feature at its April event, unveiling the new functionality that will let two people share an Apple Card and build credit together and that will also let children use a family ‌Apple Card‌ for purchases.


Ahead of the ‌Apple Card‌ Family launch, Apple has shared some specifics on how it will work in a new support document.

For account co-owners, each participant must be at least 18 years old and will have their credit reported equally in their own names. Each person shares full responsibility for an account balance and all payments. Credit reporting includes positive and negative payment history for both users, in addition to credit utilization. There are several other features available as well:

  • They can immediately use their shared ‌Apple Card‌ to receive unlimited Daily Cash back on their transactions
  • They can add or remove participants and order a titanium ‌Apple Card‌ for participants who are 18 years or older
  • They can view participant activity and account co-owner activity
  • They can set transaction limits for participants, lock a participant’s ability to spend, and receive notifications on participants spending
  • They can request a credit limit increase
  • They can close the shared ‌Apple Card‌ account at any time, but are still responsible for paying any remaining balance

Participants, aka ‌Apple Card‌ family users who are not co-owners, can use a shared ‌Apple Card‌, but won’t be responsible for payments. Participants must be at least 13 years old, and Apple has additional info on how participants work:

  • They’re not responsible for payments
  • They can view their own transactions and information
  • They can spend up to the credit limit on the account and may have an optional transaction limit set by an account owner or co-owner
  • They can immediately use their shared ‌Apple Card‌ and get unlimited Daily Cash on all transactions
  • If they’re 18 years or older, they can order their own titanium ‌Apple Card‌
  • If they’re 18 years or older, they can opt-in to build their credit and be reported on the account (as a co-owner)

Apple makes it clear that everyone on ‌Apple Card‌ Family can be impacted by payment history and credit utilization, which can affect their credit file. Both ‌Apple Card‌ co-owners will see the ‌Apple Card‌ on their credit reports, but participants who are 18+ might too if they’re reported as an authorized user.

It’s important for everyone on ‌Apple Card‌ Family to understand how credit reporting can impact their credit file. Information about the ‌Apple Card‌ Family account, such as payment history and credit utilization, are reported to credit bureaus and shown in credit bureau reports for account owners and co-owners. This information may also be shown in credit bureau reports for a participant if they’re being reported on the ‌Apple Card‌ Family account as an authorized user. Being credit reported can assist with building credit history for account co-owners and participants. Generally, accounts that have been established for a while, show consistent on-time payments, and have low balances (e.g. below 30% of the total credit limit), may result in a more positive credit impact.

To use ‌Apple Card‌ Family, Family Sharing must be in place and one of the family members must have an ‌Apple Card‌ account. Customers are required to have an iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch with the latest version of iOS, iPadOS, or watchOS.

Inviting a family member to ‌Apple Card‌ Family will be able to be done by tapping on the Wallet app, tapping the ‌Apple Card‌, tapping the “More” button, and then under People, choosing the “Share My Card” option. From there, you can choose whether to make the person you’re sharing with a co-owner or a participant.

There’s no word yet on when ‌Apple Card‌ Family will launch, but Apple appears to be laying the groundwork in iOS 14.6, so it could go live when iOS 14.6 sees a launch.

Investigation Clears Goldman Sachs of Apple Card Gender Bias

Goldman Sachs has been cleared of gender bias and discriminatory lending decisions related to Apple Card, according to the findings of New York’s financial regulator (via Bloomberg).

Goldman Sachs did not use discriminatory practices when deciding whether to extend credit to prospective ‌Apple Card‌ customers, the New York State Department of Financial Services has said. It also found no evidence that the lender’s credit decisions had a disproportionate impact on certain groups of people.

‌Apple Card‌ came under fire for alleged gender discrimination in the months after its launch, with some customers complaining on Twitter that women were granted lower credit limits than men.

This triggered an investigation into ‌Apple Card‌’s algorithms for determining credit limits in November 2019. The investigation, which included an analysis of the underwriting data for almost 400,000 New York applicants for ‌Apple Card‌, found no violations of fair lending laws. In a statement, Superintendent of Financial Services Linda A. Lacewell said:

While we found no fair lending violations, our inquiry stands as a reminder of disparities in access to credit that continue nearly 50 years after the passage of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act. This is one part of a broader discussion we must have about equal credit access.

Nevertheless, Goldman Sachs was criticized for shortcomings in customer service and a perceived lack of transparency that undermined consumer trust, with the report saying that these problems “might have been prevented by better management” of ‌Apple Card‌’s rollout.

Apple Clarifies That Missed Apple Card Payments Don’t Affect Apple ID

Designer Dustin Curtis yesterday shared a story about an unusual series of events that led to him missing an Apple Card payment and Apple then opting to freeze his Apple ID, leading to fears that missing an ‌Apple Card‌ payment could cause Apple to lock an ‌Apple ID‌.


In a statement provided today to 9to5Mac, Apple said that’s not the case and clarified what had happened in Curtis’ specific situation.

We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience we may have caused for this customer. The issue in question involved a restriction on the customer’s ‌Apple ID‌ that disabled App Store and iTunes purchases and subscription services, excluding iCloud. Apple provided an instant credit for the purchase of a new MacBook Pro, and as part of that agreement, the customer was to return their current unit to us. No matter what payment method was used, the ability to transact on the associated ‌Apple ID‌ was disabled because Apple could not collect funds. This is entirely unrelated to ‌Apple Card‌.

‌Apple Card‌ and the ‌Apple ID‌ are not linked in a way that would allow the ‌Apple ID‌ to be disabled in the event of a missed payment, and there was a trade-in issue that led to Curtis’ problem. He purchased an M1 Mac and at that time, opted to trade-in an older Mac, getting an instant discount.

Curtis says that Apple did not send him the trade-in box for his older Mac and he forgot about it, so he essentially got the trade-in discount without providing the Mac back to Apple. He overlooked several emails from Apple and investigated only when his ‌Apple ID‌ became locked.

The ‌Apple Card‌ was involved because Curtis made the purchase with an ‌Apple Card‌, but when Apple went to charge Curtis for the full amount of the ‌M1‌ Mac, it could not get payment, leading to the ‌Apple ID‌ freeze.

Apple will freeze an ‌Apple ID‌ for a trade-in that goes south. In this case, Curtis received a discount on his ‌M1‌ Mac without sending in his older Mac, and because Apple was unable to collect the full payment for the ‌M1‌ Mac, the ‌Apple ID‌ was restricted until Curtis paid in full.

Customers who have an ‌Apple Card‌ and miss a payment do not need to worry about having their Apple IDs frozen in the same manner.

New Apple Card Customers Can Get 6% Daily Cash on Apple Purchases in March

Apple is offering new Apple Card customers 6% Daily Cash Back for purchases made from Apple for the month of March.

To apply for the ‌Apple Card‌, open the Wallet app on an ‌iPhone‌, tap the plus button in the top-right corner, select ‌Apple Card‌, and follow the on-screen steps. Apple also offers a web-based application form.

Apple Offering Discounts on Fitness Subscription Apps for Apple Card Users
