A “required device” with a digital card is not essential after registration, but Goldman warns against closing accounts without an account. The company also threatens to prevent access to people using jailbroken devices and limits the purchase of cryptocurrencies. Payments can be made through an Apple Cash account or a bank account in the United States, and Goldman Sachs does not issue cards linked to one account in another person`s name. In other words, a card per Apple id. Prior to the launch of the Apple Card, Goldman Sachs uploaded the terms and conditions of the card to its website. According to a new Reuters report, the customer agreement states that the card cannot be used to purchase cash advances or payment equivalents including cryptocurrencies, casino gambling chips, circuit bets or lottery tickets. 9to5Mac indicates another detail of the agreement: Apple cardholders cannot use their accounts in connection with an iPhone hacked or modified by Jailbreak. The Apple card, first announced at Apple`s software and service event in March, will be Apple`s entry into the payment arena. The iPhone maker has partnered with Goldman Sachs and Mastercard for the card which will be available as a digital card in the Wallet app for use with Apple Pay.
A physical titanium card will also be available for use in locations that do not yet accept mobile payments. We want to make your balance easier, not more difficult. Apple Card therefore has no fees.

Not up front. Not in the back. This gives you a whole new level of security. And while Goldman Sachs uses your data to exploit Apple Card, your transaction history and spending habits are yours alone. Your data is not transmitted or sold to third parties for marketing or advertising. The fact that my wife and I can`t use the same card account reduces its appeal to us. We will get it again because Apple, but it sucks, we will have two separate invoices and our expenses will not be merged into the analysis. I think that is the most important problem. We talked about having only one card.
We could do that — we only have two now. But the main reason would be to consolidate all of Apple`s good analytics in one place. I hope Apple will do a good job and protect my data. But without this simplicity factor, we will choose to keep one of our existing maps (think plane travel) at least until Apple gives us the ability to link the two accounts.
