Apple Card Family to manage finances
Apple Card Family will help you effectively manage your finances. You can easily track your spendings on your iPhone and get a monthly record. Parents can now limit their child’s spending and instil in them healthier financial habits.
According to Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay, “We designed Apple Card Family because we saw an opportunity to reinvent how spouses, partners, and the people you trust most share credit cards and build credit together. There’s been a lack of transparency and consumer understanding in the way credit scores are calculated when there are two users of the same credit card since the primary account holder receives the benefit of building a strong credit history while the other does not. Apple Card Family lets people build their credit history together equally.”
