Apple Card Savings Account Available Starting Today With 4.15% Interest Rate
Apple today announced that the long-awaited Apple Card Savings feature is available starting today with an initial APY of 4.15%. The savings account has no fees, no minimum deposits, and no minimum balance requirements.
To open a savings account in the Wallet app, users will tap on the Apple Card, tap on the circle with three dots at the top of the screen, tap Daily Cash, and select Set Up Savings. Once the account is set up, all Daily Cash received from that point on will be automatically deposited into it and start earning interest. If they prefer, users can choose to have Daily Cash added to their Apple Cash balance instead at any time.
Apple Card Savings allows a maximum balance of $250,000, and balances are insured by the FDIC. To access funds stored in the account, users can transfer money to their Apple Cash balance or to a linked external bank account. There are no fees for withdrawals.
Apple Card Savings requires an iPhone with iOS 16.4 or later and is available to U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older. Apple has published a support document with additional information about the feature.
