Apple Card, Apple’s own debit card, may be available outside the United States by the end of this year. That writes website MacRumors Friday based on insiders. Currently, the debit card, which came out last year, is only available in the US.
A source within Australian banking tells MacRumors that the Apple Card may be available in regions outside the US by the end of this year. It is not known which regions are involved. The extension could be combined with the rollout of iOS 14.1 or 14.2.
In addition, Apple has been looking for ‘Apple Card Product Managers’ for a long time, a position aimed at maintaining relationships with banks and other authorities. According to MacRumors , the job description could mean that Apple wants to partner with banks abroad.
Apple Card was released in the US last year and is a partnership between Apple, the US bank Goldman Sachs and credit card company Mastercard. One of the differences from other credit cards is the lack of a points system. Instead, customers get a small portion of their purchase amount back.
