Apple's Goldman card launches in U.S. with Uber cashback offer

After launching earlier this month through an invite program, anyone in the U.S. can now apply for an Apple Card, Apple's mainly digital credit card. Apple's vice president of Apple Pay, Jennifer Bailey, said Apple Card will give you a good overview of your spending, with color-coded charges that are easy to follow and a way to track your spending habits.

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi tweeted that he was "excited" to partner with Apple on the credit card.

The wider roll-out starting today also comes with extensions to Apple's "Daily Cash" perks, including 3 percent cash back on Uber and Uber Eats transactions.

Tap on your Apple Cash card. Apple says that it will add more merchants and apps to its 3% cash back tier as time goes on, so it looks like Apple is going to build out that rewards tier to maybe tempt some people who are on the fence into applying.

Support for Apple Card has been simplified as well and users can connect with customer support by simply sending texts from the Messages app. Apple says it will extend the three percent back offer to other "popular merchants and apps in the coming months". For example, if you spend a lot of money eating out, the card will turn orange on your iPhone.

The buzzy new Apple Card is officially ready for picking and has branched out, adding Uber and Uber Eats as bonus cash-back categories and indicating more will come.

On security and privacy, a unique card number is created on iPhone for Apple Card and stored in the device's Secure Element, a special security chip used by Apple Pay. Goldman Sachs handles all matters on the banking side of the business, but the card is available for use immediately in the Wallet app, with Apple obviously responsible for all the card's smart features.

Weeks after the small release, the firm is now launching Apple Card nationwide.

3% when you use the digital Apple Card on purchases you make directly from Apple. The same could be said for the rewards the Apple Card offers as well, with users eligible to receive 3% cash back on purchases made directly from Apple, 2% cash back on purchases made using Apple Pay, and 1% cash back on purchases made with the physical card.
