Last night, Apple revealed that it is becoming a bank. Kind of.
Moving on from Apple Pay, the company revealed that it would be entering the world of credit, with its own Apple Card.

You’d even get a fancy titanium credit card for those times when contactless points weren’t available.

Which makes the whooping from the audience in the hall a little disconcerting:
Indeed, not everyone on Twitter was happy with the focus on services in this conference, just looking for simple changes:
And for one person, the Apple Card was one letter too long:
