    A credit card? All under one company?

    Yeah, no. Apple are allowed to go too far under one name. I wouldn't be surprised if regulating authorities start looking at them having too much under one umbrella?

    I wish Apple would just make their own country already. God knows they'd run it better than any currently existing government

    ...for the ultimate dictatorship.

    WARNING: They wouldn't allow for services such as hospitals. You'd have to "just have another iBaby" if anyone needed repairing (I mean treatment) Personally I'd migrate to a PCMR country for lower prices and higher frame rates

    No, it's available for anyone to use - just like Netflix, Amazon and others.

    Maybe it's just my naivety but it just feels wrong.

    Goldman Sachs is the issuing bank, Apple isn't a regulated bank. I'm sure they have this big pile of digital money sat around somewhere not really doing anything of much importance, of which can be apportioned to being held as collateral by Goldman Sachs.

    Issued by Goldman Sachs Bank USA, Salt Lake City Branch.
    Anyway...

    Variable APRs range from 13.24% to 24.24% based on creditworthiness. Rates as of March 2019.
    Not with interest free options, so no thanks, I'm good.

    Will be available for qualifying applicants in the United States.
    Also, only available in one country.

    Apparently, their credit card doesn't have contactless.

    2% cash back in the credit card? I’d have one provided there is no annual fee!

    Provided you pay it in full at the end of each month, it sounds like a bit of a no-brainer doesn't it?

    It does, with biometric verification. It's called an iphone
