The Apple Card is the same thickness as other credit cards. The banking industry has set up tight guidelines on the card size. If a card is too thick, it will jam up various POS devices. If the card is too thin, it will crumple and jam up the device as well. Go ahead. Put your Apple Card and another credit card on a hard flat surface adjacent to each other. The cards will be the same thickness. The main difference will be the raised characters; some newer credit cards do not have the raised characters. TheVerge editor (Nilay?) made a similar comment about the Apple Card being thicker which he later withdrew. The Apple Card is not thicker. It is indeed heavier. I'm leaving mine at home because I have another card that gives back 2% for swipe/EMV transaction and also exports data to Quicken/Mint.com/etc. Apple/GS have to try a lot harder if they want me to use the Apple Card on a regular basis. Right now, I will probably only use it for $100+ Apple Pay purchases while traveling abroad.
