    I know Apple Card isn’t out yet, but does anyone know if Apple Card will be available on the Apple Watch please? I have Apple Pay set up on my iPhone and Watch, but I find it easier to use my Watch to pay via Apple Pay, rather than getting my iPhone out of my pocket. Therefore, I would like to get Daily Cash by using my Watch. Thank you.

    Ok thank you. It’s just that I haven’t seen it mentioned for the Watch.

    I’d assume... I hope... that’s a given. I’d be flabbergasted if it wasn’t.

    You can bet that Apple will have it in your wallet. They will want you to use it.

    Absolutely. It can be used for Apple Pay, which is a feature of the watch.

    It should be just like the Apple Cash card, which once activated on iPhone also appeared automatically on Apple Watch. The card is to be used in Apple Pay mainly, and the watch does have Apple Pay too so there really is no reason for Apple Card not to be available for use on Apple Watch.

    I haven't found anything in my Apple Wallet on my iPhone that I can't access via the wallet on my Apple Watch. You should be good to go I would think.

    Credit and debit cards do need to be added to the Apple Watch separately using the wallet section in the watch app (i.e., credit and debit cards added to wallet on the iPhone usually aren't automatically added to the watch, as opposed to other passes, the only exceptions being the Apple Cash card and now presumably the Apple Card). Nonetheless, there is still no reason why Apple Card would not be available for use on Apple Watch.

    Good point. I did have to confirm manually I wanted to add the cards to my watch also. I haven't encountered a card I could put on my iPhone but not my watch.

    Yes I had to confirm that too. Also, will there be any additional charge for using the Card? I have read different sources with conflicting information.

    Just wondering. If I go to a shop that doesn't support Apple Pay and my purchase is over £30 (therefore I can’t use contactless) how do I pay with my physical Apple Card? As far as I’m aware (I can’t find any information online regarding this) you don’t have a 4-digit PIN number with Apple Card.

    Thank you and sorry if it’s me being thick!

    Since no one has the physical card yet we don't know but I would 99% say it will come with a 4 digit pin, it has the chip like a regular card and it's whole purpose is to use in places that don't support apple pay so it would be useless if not.

    I just signed up for the  card yesterday and holy moly it was so easy took like 30 seconds and it asked if I wanted to make it my default card and then it asked if I wanted to add it to my watch.

    It's important to point out that Apple Card is exclusively a US credit card subject to US banking regulations for US cardholders at this moment.

    The laws that dictate UK credit card usage for UK credit card holders are irrelevant in the current discussion of the Apple Card.

    Yes I realise that thank you. I was just asking questions ahead of the UK release in the Autumn (Fall). So it's now been released in the US?

    Because Apple will want to land and expand their user base as quickly as possible and speculation is the UK during the fall.
    It has been reported that iPhone sales have dropped at the fastest rate ever this year (sales are down 17% compared with 2018), so this will be vital for Apple to prevent customers from moving to Android phones.
