SALT LAKE CITY — The Apple Card is now officially available to everyone.

Apple originally launched the app and card to limited customers to preview its rollout, which I wrote about for the Deseret News.

But today, all qualifying iPhone owners will now have the option to apply for the Apple Card through the Wallet app, which you can find on the iOS device.

“We’re thrilled with the overwhelming interest in Apple Card and its positive reception,” said Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay. “Customers have told us they love Apple Card’s simplicity and how it gives them a better view of their spending.”

Apple will now extend the Daily Cash program (a cash back program) to more companies and buyers. If you use Uber or Uber Eats with the Apple Card, you can get 3% Daily Cash, too. The same can be earned from buying through Apple Stores or the iTunes store, according to The Verge.

Just a reminder, the Apple Card will be a little different than most credit cards. The Apple Card comes with no fees (no annual, late, international or over-the-limit fees). The Apple Card will offer a range of payment options and “calculates the interest cost on different payment amounts in real time,” according to an Apple news release.

There’s a good chance that you will be approved for the Apple Card. As I wrote for the Deseret News, Apple Card approval levels are pretty high. Even sub-prime borrowers have seen their applications be accepted.
