Here is the 32-year-old Apple credit card that you never saw before
- Titanium Apple Card is not the first credit card from Apple
- Apple launched its first credit card 32 years ago
New Delhi: Earlier this week, Apple took an important step in the banking and payments sector by presenting its titanium Apple card. The card, as shown during the company's "Special Event," is a real credit card made of titanium with a minimalist appearance that shows only the name of the cardholder, an integrated chip and the Apple logo.
Although many claims that this is the first credit of the Cupertino technology company, it really is not. As interesting as it seems, Apple launched its first credit card 32 years ago and the most recent release has caused many to share images and thoughts about the old one on platforms such as Twitter and Reddit.
As compiled by Cult of Mac, the card issued by Apple 32 years ago was a regular plastic with the iconic Apple colour rainbow icon in the centre with the text "Apple Computer, Inc." mentioned below. The card also showed the number and the name of the cardholder. This was for business users.
It has been reported that there was another card that was issued for customers. The second version of the old credit card had the Apple logo in the upper left corner, as we have seen in the last one along with the name of the company, the card number and the name of the cardholder.
It is not certain how many Apple cards issued in the 80s and 90s and when they were discontinued. However, what is mentioned is that the technology magazines published advertisements for the 'Apple Business Credit Card' and a consumer credit card, both worth $ 2,500 in instant credit.
Of the two, the business card came with a bonus offer in which holders of the cards could exchange Apple Lisa or Macintosh XL for the new versions: Macintosh Plus and Hard Disk 20.
The Apple Card 2019 is integrated directly into the Apple Wallet application on the iPhone and can be managed from there. The card will be available to customers in the United States this summer. We hope it will arrive after the introduction of the new iOS version at the next WWDC 2019 conference.
