Apple announced its premium credit card, the Apple Card, back in August last year. The company made it exclusive to Apple users in the US with the appropriate credit rating. Apple made it into a virtual card and also allowed a quite premium (Apple style) Titanium card in partnership with Goldman Sachs and Mastercard.
Now, for an out of this world, modernised card solution, it lacked something quite basic to all banking products today: a web management system. So, if you were to lose your iPhone which has all the details for the usage, your transactions, you don’t have an alternative. What you do have is something quite ancient for a “modernised” answer to current card systems. This is the phone line for banking services at Goldman Sachs.
Today though, in a hushed moment, Apple has announced an upgrade for this service. We find this news from a tweet from Max Weinbach.
It finally has the thing it should have had from the start! https://t.co/C5WYtaseTq

The new web app can be accessed at this link here. Now, the idea behind this is that Apple probably realised that they should have added this before, at launch. That is what the tweet comments on as well. You know what they say, alls well that ends well. While this is just the first version of the platform, it offers many basic features that one would see with other banking apps. Additionally, it offers Apple-specific features too like scheduling payments for Apple products and then some. A good step for Apple and hope that this platform and grow to be the premium entity it is advertised as.
