How to Activate Apple Card

The Apple Card is a mobile-first credit card, and you need an iPhone to activate it. And yes, for the Apple fan inside us, it’s quite magical to activate the Apple card with an iPhone. The slim titanium card has tech inside that your iPhone is able to detect when brought near it.
