More than a year after his arrival in the US, new clues suggest the imminent international launch of the Apple Card.
A source says an Australian bank is finalizing the final procedures before it can launch the Apple Card in Australia. In addition, by the end of the year, Apple’s payment card is also expected to arrive in Europe. Its launch in other countries could coincide with the release of iOS 14.1 or iOS 14.2 expected between November and December, or at the latest with iOS 14.3 in early 2021.
Additionally, Apple recently hired new Apple Card Product Managers, whose goal is to “travel and collaborate with external partners such as payment networks, banks and other industry players . “
In addition, in beta 8 of iOS 14 , there are references to the GDPR for the Apple Card. As the GDPR is a European regulation for data protection, we are faced with another clue that the card will also arrive in Europe.
Could Apple already announce this news during the September 15 event? This would come as no surprise, given that the Card has been very successful in the United States and could be repeated in other markets as well.
