The good, bad and the unknown of Apple's new services

Apple Announces Gaming Subscription Service

Apple Arcade Will Arrive In Fall 2019

We've talked in detail about what Apple Card is here, so we'll be very brief.

Apple launched its new subscription service Apple News+ a couple of days ago.

Apple Pay now represents less than 2% of volume on major networks like Visa and Mastercard, according to Harshita Rawat, an analyst at Sanford C Bernstein & Co. Apple's credit card is simply called "Apple Card" and is being promoted as a card with no fees, attractive rewards and deeper integration with the iPhone.

Keep this in mind when considering the card. The company also offered a physical, titanium Apple card to be used in locations where the Apple Card is not accepted.

Speaking of the physical card, one of the more interesting aspects of the card itself is that it has no numbers on the front or back. For instance, the "financial health" tools in the Wallet app will allow card users to check and analyze their Apple Card usage at a glance.

The Huawei P30 , on the other hand, will have a usual non-curved display with a waterdrop notch and thin bezels. As you would expect, there are also a few differences between the Huawei P30 Pro and the Mate 20 Pro however.

If you lose your card you can freeze it instantly through the app, and you can make instant payments to friends. Apple Arcade games will be great for families, respect user privacy and will not have ads or require any additional purchases. And it said Goldman Sachs, which Apple is working with to provide the card, will use your data only to operate the card - such as help with purchases or fraud protection. It's fairly straightforward and potentially enticing, depending on your spending habits. Customers will receive a percentage of every Apple Card purchase amount back as "Daily Cash". Again, it's worth repeating: you're going to want to use Apple Pay as much as possible if you want to maximize your rewards.

Moreover, Apple Card will help the company reach its target of doubling its service revenue by 2020. Instead, it's just the Apple logo and your name, which should quell any fears you may have about someone using it.

Cash rewards:the card offers cashback of between 1% and 3% on purchases each time it is used. With the technology available, like online shopping and purchasing, people had gone on debts and lost control over it, while companies take advantage of this trend.

The Apple Card, backed by Goldman Sachs and Mastercard can be found on the Wallet app for iOS, where users are able to view statements, balance, and payment due dates.

This might come as a surprise, considering Apple has been hyping Family Sharing for most of its new services, but if you get the Apple Card, you will not be able to add a family member as an authorized user. While Apple services generally force users to operate within Apple-manufactured hardware, one notable thing about Apple TV+ is that it will be accessible through external streaming devices like Roku and the Amazon Fire TV Stick.

Apple says its news credit card will transform the entire experience by simplifying the application process, eliminating fees, encouraging customers to pay less interest and providing a new level of privacy and security. Developer Mojang ended up ceasing software updates and ending cross-play, given how little return it received on maintaining the game on the Apple TV platform.

Security features include a unique card number which is created on the iPhone for Apple Card and stored safely in the device's secure element. It also lets you set up more frequent payments if you want to pay more often then once a month.

There are also no travel fees, you get the Mastercard exchange rates without fees when spending overseas and you can easily make worldwide payments much cheaper than a high street bank.

On the other hand, no late fees could encourage some cardholders to carry a balance.
