Over the years we have watched apple debut shiny gadgets but this time, Chief Executive Tim Cook was clear that all announcements would be on new services not devices.
Monday 25th March Apple introduced its new credit card, Apple Card. The card will improve general credit card experience with great incentives like no international fees, low interest rates and better rewards.
To get the new Apple card, all you need to do is sign up on your phone in the apple wallet and get a digital card that you can use anywhere in the world. You can also get a physical titanium card that works just like the virtual card.
Users will be able to privately track purchases and check balances from the convenience of their phones. “Apple doesn’t know what you bought, where you bought it, and how much you paid for it,” says Jennifer Bailey, VP of Apple Pay and this is another reason you should sign up.
Apple also launched Apple News Plus, which is a subscription service that will give users access to over 300 publications and magazines for $9.99 per month. These include Vogue, National Geographic Magazine and Essence just to name a few.
“Our goal was simple. We wanted to create the best magazine reading experience ever for a mobile device.” Said Apple CEO Tim Cook.
