Is there a way to purchase a new iphone with an apple credit card at the same time?
I do not have the apple card now and was womdering if there was a special way to check out.
Or if I apply for the apple card 1st is there a way to pre order the iphone online?
I do not have an apple product now outside of my macbook.

They would have to be done separately - first the Card and then the iPhone. And you then use the Card as the payment either to pay for the iPhone in full or for the monthly payments.

Will it provide me with the card number instantly to order online?

Yes. It takes a bit to get the physical card if you want/need one but as soon as you are approved and add the Card to the Wallet app on your iPhone you can access the card number, expiration date and CCV code. And if you make the Apple Card the default payment with Apple the Apple Store app will see that and show it on the payment page.

You have to apply for the Apple Card first, then order the iPhone online. If you are approved, it's instantly available for you to use on Apple Pay and other purchases. Usually if you have an idevice, you can get access to your card number on the Wallet & Apple Pay in the settings. (not sure if you have one since you mentioned you don't have other apple product besides the macbook).

So if I apply for the card which I'll get i won't have access to the number to order the iPhone is what it sounds like....

Well once you apply, you can use Apple Pay because once Approved, it is already set up ready to be used on the Apple Wallet, which you can set it on the settings on your MacBook. How are you going to apply for the Apple Card?

I have a similar question.

I have never owned a mobile phone, but I do have an iPad Pro. I applied for the Apple Card online through my iPad a couple days ago and was instantly approved and it was added to my Wallet on the iPad. However, all the instructions I have seen since then are how to activate the physical card when it arrives in a few days and all the instructions say it must be activated from the "phone". I don't have nor have I ordered a phone yet, but I am wanting to purchase a new iPhone 11 Pro from Apple Online using the new Apple Card that should arrive this week.

Is is possible for me to use this new Apple Card to purchase my new iPhone 11 Pro (to get the 3% daily cash offer) if I have no way to activate the new card first? ...or can I "activate" it from my iPad Pro when the card comes in?

Just use Apple Pay from the iPad.
