iOS 15.5 adds support for Apple Account Card in the Wallet app

Apple recently added the support for Apple Account Card in the Wallet app for iOS 15.5 users. Now, users will be able to easily buy Apple products, apps, services, and accessories from online or retail stores and manage payment methods for Apple Services like iCloud, App Store, Music, Fitness+, and others through Apple Account Card.

Apple Account Card shows the Apple credit balance associated with an Apple ID. Previously, when users received an Apple Store or App Store gift card, the amount was added to an Apple Account which was shown in the App Store and Apple Store apps. Now, that Apple Account Card is added to the Wallet app, along with users’ credit and/or debit cards.
