Apple launched a new online portal for the Apple card on Thursday, allowing users to manage their cards via a browser.
Previously, all Apple card management transactions and tasks were managed on an iPhone via the Wallet app. This includes paying invoices, viewing statements and viewing other information.
Now, a web portal is available for Apple card customers to manage their accounts on any web browser. This includes viewing and paying balances, viewing available credits and previous statements, and planning future payments. It will be a boon for Apple card users in certain situations. For example, before the online web portal, users who had lost their devices had to call Goldman Sachs to pay their balances.
The Apple Card was launched in 2019 in partnership with Goldman Sachs as a mobile-forward credit solution. Since its inception, Apple has increased the number of retailers to support 3% daily cash flow and has introduced monthly installment plans for various devices in its product line.
In May, the company launched a credit coaching program for applicants for previously refused Apple cards. And, amid the coronavirus pandemic, Apple also maintained a deferred payment plan from March to July.
