If you don’t know much about Apple Card there are lots of friendly people here to give advice about credit scores, APR and the general interface isn’t the Wallet app. Also www.apple.com/AppleCard.
What we know as of the morning 8/12.
Invites went out to a select few 8/5 – 8/8 via email, although some were able to apply by going to the Wallet App and pressing the “+” without an invite, or by following this link. Full release later this month.
