Apple Card is a credit card that can be used with Apple Pay to get cash back rewards of 2 percent on certain transactions, or rewards of 3 percent on Apple Shopping and some retailers.
The physical card enables consumers to get back 1 per cent cash for all transactions.

At this case, Apple is expected to launch its “Apple Watch Series 6,” and “iPad Air 4.”
