Apple’s Credit Card

Apple currently operates a premium credit card in the United States in partnership with Mastercard and Goldman Sachs. The card is built on ease, transparency, and privacy. The company claims that it is designed to help users lead a better financial life. It is built into the Apple Wallet app on iPhone and offers users a familiar experience with Apple Pay and the ability to manage their cards right on iPhone. Apple Card transforms the entire credit card experience by making the application process simple. Apple claims that it also removes fees and encourages users to pay less interest.

India is a huge market for Apple, and the company has been trying to expand its presence in the country for years. According to Statista, India has a relatively low credit card penetration rate. Zee Business reports that India has about 86 million credit cards in circulation. This is quite low considering that the country has over 1.4 billion people.
