Apple Card users will be able to buy an iPhone with no interest for 24 months

The Apple Card is adding more perks. Soon after launch, Apple announced that purchases through Uber and Uber Eats would get customers 3 percent cash back, just like purchases of Apple products. Now, the company is making it easier for customers to get iPhones. In fact, Apple Card users will be able to buy new iPhones from Apple with no interest over 24 months and no fees.

The new offers were announced as part of Apple’s earnings call, and are expected to go into effect sometime in the near future. If you’re interested in getting an iPhone and have an Apple Card, it might be worth waiting until the new feature is activated. If you use your Apple Card, you’ll also get 3 percent cash back on the purchase.

There are similar financing options for iPhones currently available, both through Apple directly and through third-party retailers. For example, as 9to5Mac notes, the iPhone Upgrade Program offers no interest over 24 months. Here, however, you’re paying for the iPhone outright with your card, and you can manage the payments through the Apple Wallet app.

According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, the Apple Card has been the most successful credit card launch in U.S. history, and that’s not all that surprising. The key to the Apple Card isn’t the card itself — it’s the Wallet app, which makes managing the Apple Card and seeing insights on your spending simple. According to Apple, the app is built to help people manage their credit and their spending, while discouraging letting the balance build. Lastly, it offers no fees, including international fees.

Apart from the new Apple Card perk, Cook also announced that Apple achieved its highest fourth-quarter revenue ever — $64 billion. While iPhone revenue was down a little compared to last year, it beat expectations — and was offset by income from other areas of Apple’s business, like wearables.

For the first quarter of 2020, Apple expects revenue of a whopping $85.5 to $89.5 billion, which is about on par with last year’s Q1 revenue of $88.3 billion. If it beats last year, it will have achieved its highest Q1 revenue ever.

iOS 18 is a big and exciting iPhone update. From the home screen customization tools to the new Control Center and the various improvements to iMessage, there's plenty to be excited about. I know I am!

However, there's also an ugly side to iOS 18. A big part of this update includes Apple's long-awaited AI features, which Apple refers to as Apple Intelligence. What we've seen so far of Apple Intelligence looks quite promising. Unfortunately, while these AI features are included in the iOS 18 update, they'll only be available for a select group of people.

You’ve never seen an iPhone like this before

Your Apple iPhone has a camera, my iPhone has a camera, so everyone’s iPhone must have a camera right? Wrong, as an image posted to Reddit shows.

Originally uploaded to the “Mildly Interesting” subreddit (somewhat ironically, given it's actually very interesting), it’s a photo of an aging and somewhat battered Apple iPhone. But before you think you are looking at the startup logo on the screen, it’s actually the back of the phone, and it’s missing the camera entirely.
