In 2019, the Cupertino tech giant launched the Apple Card for all of its U.S. customers in partnership with Goldman Sachs. Integrated with the iOS Wallet app, the digital credit card offers contactless transactions, installment plans, up to 3% Daily Cash Back on purchases, and more with no interest and hidden fees. Furthermore, cardholders can easily manage their accounts and track their spending and payments in the Wallet app.

In April this year, the tech company introduced Apple Card’s high-yield Savings account by Goldman Sachs with a high-yield APY of 4.15 percent. The Savings account allows cardholders to grow their Daily Cash rewards with a Savings account from Goldman Sachs and more. 

In the first four days of launch, the Apple Card Savings account drew nearly $1 billion in deposits and in a few months, it had over $10 billion in deposits
