    Mobile leaker Ben Geskin shared images on Twitter of the consumer packaging of the new Apple credit card coming from Apple. Geskin reports some Apple employees are already starting to get the card which was announced in March.

    In the images, the actual Apple employee's name was replaced by Geskin's to protect their identify. The packaging shows a similar pairing process as the AirPods, with instructions to "Wake iPhone and hold here."

    The Apple Card resides both digitally in your iPhone for Apple Pay payments but also comes in a physical form made entirely of titanium. The card is laser etched with your name and does not have the card number or expiration date printed on it. Instead, those numbers will be available on your iPhone's Wallet App. There's still a traditional magstripe on the back, along with a built-in chip for chip and pin purchases. The Apple Card is expected to launch this summer.

    Neat. Would have been a bit cooler if they could have dropped the co-branding (especially Goldman...), but it's a nice looking card.

    Can’t wait! I pretty much only use ApplePay, so the daily cash back will be fantastic.

    The Apple credit card is adjunct to a new financial services platform GS is expected to roll out in 2020. Think of it this way, when the iPhone was launched AT&T was the sole carrier — in this case Apple is playing the role of AT&T.

    Just as heavy as any other credit card when you load it with debt ;)

    I’m totally getting one of these, and I’m fully aware that I’m a sad little fanboy.

    I can’t believe people go nuts over a new credit card.

    Wow a month before summer (which is when it’s supposed to launch). Hopefully it goes live next month.

    It’s just a credit card, but I’m excited about it.

    I just cannot be excited about this. Benefits are way better with AmEx Plat.

    I want an Apple Card just because of the “Ooh, shiny!” factor... but I would have to agree with you. I’m trying to eventually get some Chase cards and they make zero exceptions to that darn 5/24 rule. I’m already out of the running until almost 2021...

    The Goldman Sachs card should do for Apple what Discover did for Sears.

    They ought to be based on how much the annual fee is for the AE Platinum Card. The Apple Card has no annual fee.
