Apple Card could encourage banks to make their cards numberless too

Apple Releases iOS 12.2 with News+ Support
According to John-Kurt Pliniussen from the Smith School of Business at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., credit card companies will start competing with Apple from now on in order to match what the tech giant is offering. With the release today of iOS 12.2, News+ is now available to iPhone and iPad users, albeit only in the United States and Canada. Another big selling point: The Apple Card has no annual, late, international, or over-the-limit fees. Apple instead displays a range of flexible payment options.
Within the app: the card will still be held in the Waller app on an iPhone, where it can be used in conjunction with Apple Pay, as well as in its physical format.
The company announced Monday that it's launching Apple Card, a new credit card made for the iPhone.
Available in the USA this summer, Apple Card will also offer a clearer and more compelling rewards program than any other credit card in the market, with "Daily Cash", which gives back a percentage of every purchase as cash on customers' Apple Cash card each day.
Another fix closed a loophole that allowed users to access sensitive information in the Messages app and websites visited through Safari to see information from their phone's light and motion sensors. "By contrast, you don't need to use Uber to get high-end cash back from the Uber Visa Card (notably: 4% at restaurants)".
Having the Apple Card is also like having one's own credit and loans adviser.
North Korea withdraws from inter-Korea liaison office
There have also been reports of renewed activity at a North Korean nuclear test site, which have been condemned by Donald Trump . The North's Unification Ministry said Pyongyang "will not mind the South remaining" in the liaison office.
Purchases are automatically totalled and organised by colour-coded categories such as food and drink, shopping and entertainment. The unusual thing is that in order to muscle in on a competitive industry, issuer Goldman Sachs has tossed aside numerous features that make the card business lucrative for banks in the first place. As long speculated, now finally confirmed, Apple's service will count with original TV shows, movies, and documentaries, from Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Octavia Spencer, J.J. Abrams, Jason Momoa, M.Night Shyamalan, Jon M. Chu and more. To simply put it, what Apple is saying here is that it is giving away free money for using its own service. The subscription plans for Apple+ have not been revealed yet. Apple TV channels include HBO, Starz, SHOWTIME, CBS All Access, and the Smithsonian Channel.
Apple Pay offered a more elegant, secure way to pay for goods. Apple said the Apple Arcade will have new game titles added to its library regularly to give subscribers more playing options. Let us know, and users have any device, they can read the news and magazines content by buying its subscription.
It's worth noting that Apple Arcade isn't a carbon copy of Google's Stadia, but is more aligned with services like PlayStation Plus or Nintendo Switch online. These inventions will make you experience the most as you download them. But, if you spend a lot of money at restaurants, or other local businesses that don't take Apple Pay, you'll have a more hard time maximizing your rewards. Apple Arcade games will be great for families, respect user privacy and will not have ads or require any additional purchases.

For its soon-to-be unveiled video streaming service , Apple will apparently adopt something similar to a la carte pricing. So, if competition is the motto, then surely we can expect an equally good service from Apple at the Show Time Event.
