Advanced fraud protection for Apple Card owners is now available as part of the iOS 15 update, which automatically rotates the card's three-digit security code every now and then.
As time marches on, and security needs change and evolve, companies need to do the same thing. There once was a time when you'd hand a store associate a credit card and they'd use a physical machine to copy your card details on some paper and call it good. Today, though, our credit and debit cards are outfitted with small chips that make them much more secure than a flimsy piece of paper. They are also equipped with a magnetic strip, too, but it looks like that's on the way out.
Apple used its Wallet app to push deals to Apple Card holders before, but this is the first time the company has offered exclusive deals that includes one of its own services as a perk.
It wasn't all that long ago that it was rumored Apple, along with Goldman Sachs, was moving into the "buy now, pay later" market. It's lucrative, to say the least, and now it looks like Apple has indeed endeavored to make it happen. But it looks like it'll be a semi-limited one to start.
Earlier today, Apple announced the results for its third fiscal quarter. It was another dominant stretch of three months for the company, and, of course, its Services division. As has become the norm for these results, it's the Services division that continues to break records.
After weeks of beta testing, the day has finally arrived. The next update for iOS and iPadOS is now available to the public. Now, it's not quite the big update we're all waiting for -- iOS 15 doesn't arrive until this fall -- but it's certainly a noteworthy uptick in version number, at least.
Routine maintenance can make some sites, and services, unavailable for a set period of time. The same can be said for an outage. Unfortunately, it's the latter situation currently impacting Apple Card owners.
With today's release of iOS 14.6 (and other software updates), Apple has welcomed one of the newest features for its credit card, the Apple Card. Apple Card for the family is now here.
Apple is going to release iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6 to the public very soon. Ahead of that, though, the final release candidate has been seeded to developers.
Apple announced the new family-focused features for Apple Card members at its "Spring Loaded" event in April 2021. Today, the Cupertino technology giant has shared additional information regarding Apple Card Family ahead of its probable launch later this month.
Stop us if you've heard this one: Apple's Services division had another ridiculously strong quarter. Well, sure enough, Apple's confirmed as much today with the company's latest quarterly earnings report.
It was rumored not too long ago, but Apple made it officially official today during its Spring Loaded event. Today, the Apple Card introduces family features to the mix.
