The Apple Card is a titanium card with a very simple design that has a laser engraved user name and Apple logo on the surface. It is said that a beautiful white finish on the card surface has been realized by applying multilayer coating on titanium. The card itself is made of titanium, so Apple warns that touching a hard surface or material can damage the surface coating.

Apple lists the following cleaning methods to keep the card clean. Use of household detergents, airbrushes, aerosol sprays, solvents, ammonia, and abrasives is strictly prohibited.

1: Moisten a soft lint-free microfiber cloth and gently wipe the card.
2: Moisten the microfiber cloth with isopropyl alcohol and gently wipe the card.

In addition, “Some fabrics, such as leather and denim, can cause permanent discoloration that cannot be washed off.”

Precautions for safe storage and transportation of such delicate Apple Cards include: “Store in a purse / pocket / bag made of soft material” “Put it in your wallet pocket to avoid touching another credit card” “If you put two credit cards in the same pocket, the card may be damaged.” “Do not place or store a titanium Apple Card near the magnet. If the card is placed near the magnetic latch of the bag, the magnetic stripe of the card may be degaussed. '' `` Please do not put the Apple Card in a pocket or bag containing abrasive items such as keys '' It is.


About this, The Verge from overseas media pointed out that 'almost everyone doesn't handle credit cards so carefully, and it's too overkill to keep a leather wallet just to avoid discoloration.' However, even if you have such a difficulty, even if you can not use Apple Pay, it is possible to make a secure payment using an Apple Card with no card number written, and there is a wonderful advantage of 3% cash back is.

Nonetheless, the surprise when I learned that I could not attach it to other cards or put it in a leather wallet was great, and I guess that the only solution is `` Appearance of Apple Card dedicated case '' .
