Apple has recently announced a series of new credit cards aimed at consumers who are willing to boost their credit score with each purchase they make using their newly-launched iPhone. The new credit card, Apple released in March at its Cupertino, CA, headquarters, is scheduled to roll out to a random, select group of iPhone owners (who signed up for a notification when it became available) over the next month.
Unlike the existing, standard-sized credit cards offered by most banks, the new Apple credit card will feature special features that will appeal to iPhone users. The cards can be used for both purchases and cash advances, as well as making purchases using your cellular phone and iTunes music. Unlike the standard, rectangular-shaped cards, which feature only Visa and MasterCard logos, the new card features logos representing a variety of major corporations such as Visa, Discover, MasterCard, and American Express, along with a unique logo designed by the company itself. This ensures that customers who use the credit card will have a strong sense of belonging to one of the most popular companies in the world today.
When it was introduced, the new Apple credit card would only be available to new customers at the moment of its release. However, the company has decided to extend the offer to existing customers in an effort to attract more consumers to sign up for the card. Apple's new mobile-payment system, called “Wallet,” has also been expanded to include other devices such as the iPad and the iPod Touch. As previously announced, customers can use their Apple devices to make purchases in retail stores, as well as in the iTunes store on their mobile phone. They can then pay for their purchases using a credit or debit card, which is stored securely by the company on the device they are using to make the purchase.
Apple says that its new, mobile-payment system can make using their cards at both its retail stores and its other online outlets a lot easier, which could help boost the sales volume of the company's products. In addition to making it easier for customers to pay with their credit cards, Wallet also makes it easier for the company's stores to keep track of their financial transactions and improve customer service, as well.
Wallet was designed with a few different goals in mind. According to Apple, it is designed to offer faster transaction times and to simplify the checkout process. It is also designed to provide a safer, easier way for users to access money in their accounts. as, well.
The company also hopes that the new cards will increase the number . . . . . . of customers it attracts who sign up for the Apple rewards programs. and pay their invoices with their iPhones.
