Apple today launched a website that's designed to allow Apple Card holders to check their balances, view statements, and make Apple Card payments online.

The card.apple.com website lets Apple Card holders sign in with their Apple IDs. The website features a payments section that shows card balance front and center, along with the next scheduled payment date, and total card limits.

Monthly statements can be viewed and downloaded through another section of the website, while Settings allows users to add a bank account, manage scheduled payments, or see their Mastercard network benefits. A support section of the website provides access to an Apple Card web user guide and a phone number that customers can call to get help.

All of these functions were previously available in the Wallet app, but having online access to Apple Card tools is useful for those who prefer managing their credit cards from their computers rather than their iPhones. It also allows Apple Card to be used without the need to own an iPhone or an iPad for the first time, which is a major change.

Apple is also now allowing new Apple Card applicants to apply directly from the Apple.com website using any browser when purchasing a product using the Apple Card Monthly Installments option, a feature which previously required the Apple Store app or a Safari web browser. To reflect the new changes today, Apple is sending out emails to customers letting them know about updates to their customer agreements.
We made some changes to your Apple Card that are now part of your Customer Agreement. We are summarizing these changes below.

More Ways to Manage Your Account. We've added the ability to access and manage Apple Card online. You can use card.apple.com to make, schedule, or cancel payments; check your available credit; view Monthly Statements; and review your Apple Card Customer Agreement, APR, and other rate information.

Using Apple Card Without iPhone or iPad. Now that it's possible to use Apple Card Monthly Installments without an iPhone or iPad, we changed the Apple Card Customer Agreement to explain this experience. This is detailed in the section entitled, Using Your Account Without a Required Device.

Daily Cash. We added information about: (i) how you may earn bonus Daily Cash at select merchants, and (ii) how Daily Cash Adjustments as a result of a return or credit can be charged as one or more Transactions to your Account, reflected on your Monthly Statements.

Apple Card Monthly Installments. We are changing how you can accept the terms of your monthly repayment amount for an Apple Card Monthly Installment. This does not change how we calculate your Minimum Payment Due.

Software Updates. In order to ensure complete access to your Account and that you receive required updates, we ask that you please update to the latest version of iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, or macOS on the devices you use with Apple Card.

Other Changes. We made clarifications, formatting corrections, and other minor changes.

Except for these changes, the rest of your Apple Card Customer Agreement remains as is.
As highlighted yesterday, Apple is running a promotion for new Apple Card users at the current time, providing $50 Daily Cash when the Apple Card is first used to pay for an Apple service like an App Store purchase, Apple Arcade, or Apple Music.

this is a good move, but im guessing that Apple sees this web implementation as a substitute to writing a good, native prefpane. That is wrong. You really should be able to get at all of this Apple Card info from within System Preferences on a Mac. Seems crazy to me that you can’t.

I appreciate this, as someone who will give up my iPhone for vacations, etc. and often just bring a PC on vacation. It always aggravated me that I couldn’t do much of anything to manage my account or pay my bill without an iDevice on hand.

Why would you need a desktop app to check your balance and make payments? Every bank ever has been doing just fine with their websites.

Until now Apple has been behind in not allowing the ability to manage your Apple Card account from the web.

I really appreciate the speed with which I can pay my Apple Card bill right on my iPhone, but I think that this is a good move on Apple's part to also have the ability to manage one's account via the website as well. Last year I remember being a bit disconcerted at first about the idea of managing my account on my iPhone only, and was relieved when it turned out to be easier than I'd anticipated, so I can imagine that for some people that may have been a barrier to even attempting to apply for an Apple Card in the first place.

Out there...way out there
Umm ok I do like the concept of this... but it's not necessary... ease of use on iPhone is perfect.

Instead of a website, they should create an apple pay app for iPad.

No necessary for you perhaps. But why are you so quick to judge others needs though?

Both my wife and I have Apple cards. She likes to know each month how much is coming out of the bank account to pay the bill so she can move money around if there's a need to.

Right now I have to tell her each month. With this it sounds like she could find out herself.

I'm not judging just pointing how easy the wallet app is already an how you can specify how much to auto-pay by setup.

not necessarily an app, but a dedicated section for it in the Wallet preference pane in System Preferences like what the iPad has. That should be their goal

is a mac app so necessary though? what's wrong with just using the wallet app?

i’ll change my post. Really, i just want to be able to manage the apple card from within system preferences
