Apple Card is now available to all iPhone users in the United States.

You can sign up for yours through the Wallet app. Users will enjoy 2% daily cash back on Apple Pay transactions, and 3% daily cash back on purchases made directly from Apple.

As the Apple credit card launched Tuesday, Cupertino also expanded its 3% daily cash back offer to include Uber and Uber Eats.

Apple ‘thrilled’ with Apple Card interest

Those lucky enough to receive an early invite to try Apple Card already received theirs. And Apple says they’re loving it. (We are, too: Read our Apple Card review.)

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

To find out what all the fuss is about, sign up for yours today.

Apple Card launch in the United States

Any adult with an iPhone who lives in the United States can apply for an Apple Card. The process is exceedingly simple. Just open up the Wallet app (on iOS 12.4), tap the + button, and choose the Apple Card option.

Apple Card customers get 3% daily cash back on purchases made directly with Apple, including at the Apple Store, the Apple Online Store, the App Store, iTunes and for Apple services.

That 3% rate now extends to include Uber and its food-delivery service, Uber Eats. All other Apple Pay purchases will earn Apple Card users 2%. You’ll get 1% back when you shop with the physical Apple Card.

All the benefits

You will also enjoy 24/7 customer service through the Message app, and absolutely no fees whatsoever. Apple Card charges no annual fee, no late fees and no over-the-limit fees. Interest will accrue on purchases not paid off in full each month, however.

Apple Card is issued by Goldman Sachs and supported by MasterCard, so you can use it anywhere around the world. But before you start shopping, be sure to opt out of arbitration.
