Apple has finally relented and launched an online dashboard for the Apple Card, which will enable easy account management away from the iPhone for the first time.
The new web portal, which is live at card.apple.com enables shoppers to manage their balance, view statements, pay bills and more. Existing card holders can sign in using their Apple ID.
Previously, all of this was only possible via an iOS device via the Apple Wallet app, so many cardholders will be glad to have a little more flexibility moving forward.
The online presence is pretty necessary if Apple Card users lose their iPhones, for example. It meant the only way users could access their account was to actually make a phone call Apple’s partner bank Goldman Sach’s.
Given Apple marketed its expansion into financial services as a futuristic revolution, this aspect of the service didn’t quite fit the billing and has now been remedied, presumably after demand from users.

The Apple Card is groundbreaking in a number of ways, most notably for its reliance on the Apple Pay digital platform, as well as the lack of fees. There’s no annual fee, no foreign transaction fee and no late payment fees.
It also promises up to 3% cash back, including on all purchases you make from Apple on every purchase that goes into an Apple Cash account, smart interest calculations based on how much you’re willing to pay off your balance per month, and much more. There’s also a fancy physical card made of titanium for use in places where Apple Pay isn’t accepted.
Those wishing to apply for the Apple Card will still have to do so via the Apple Wallet app for iPhone.
