In a bid to offer great UI/UX experience, Apple has gotten completely rid of any physical numbers on the Apple Card. While this gives the card a very sleek and clean look, it does pose a problem: where does one find the Apple Card details for online transactions?
The physical Apple Card is definitely unique because unlike other traditional credit cards, it is made from titanium. This means its build quality is simply unrivaled by any other card in the market. However, that build quality seems to come at a price as you will have to baby your physical Apple Card if you intend to keep it in pristine condition.
Before the Apple Card was even launched to the public, its terms and conditions created quite an uproar as the customer agreement forbid the feature from working on jailbroken iPhones. With a public jailbreak available for the latest iOS release for the first time in years and Apple Card launching publicly in the United States today, many users are wondering if they would be able to use Apple Card on their jailbroken iPhone.
Two weeks after making the Apple Card available as a preview to selected customers in the United States, Apple has now made Apple Card available to all iPhone customers.
A new support document from Apple lists out all the reasons why your Apple Card application might have been rejected by Goldman Sachs.

The Apple Card has created quite a hype especially since it is being approved for people with low FICO score and offers high cashback on Apple products. The Cupertino company has tied up with financial giant Goldman Sachs.
The Apple Card offers a UI/UX that no other card or bank manages to offer right now. The setup process for the physical card is nothing short of magical. The tight integration with the Wallet app on the iPhone is also something that no other bank offers. This tight integration between the Apple Card and the iPhone is also going to be a reason for a headache if you ever end up losing your phone.
In a bid to win customers, Apple and Goldman Sachs are approving the Apple Card applications of even sub-prime borrowers. Interestingly, today’s report also claims that Apple initially thought of launching the Apple Card back in the 1990s itself.
