Apple Debuts Credit Card That Can't Be Paid Off Without an iPhone

Bottom line: College students at a dozen additional universities across the country will be able to carry their student IDs on their iPhone or Apple Watch this school year, eliminating the need for a separate physical ID card to access dorm rooms, buy lunch and get into sporting events.

Apple says on its official Apple Card site that users must enter their personal banking information into the Wallet app, or use Apple Cash, in order to make card payments. It's iPhone or bust.

One of the coolest features of the Apple Card is that its color will change depending on what you buy - meaning nearly every customer should have different-looking cards. As I use the Apple Card (both physical and digital) more over the coming days and weeks, I'll update with more details on what it's like and I'll include any extra details I uncover. So if you don't have an iPhone to pay, you're out of luck. Apple still has a lot of colleges and universities to tackle if it wants students across the country to be using their student IDs through Apple Wallet, so it probably won't be long before we hear of support being added at more of them. Ideally, Apple would have a secure website that could verify your identity through your Apple ID, and possibly your phone and Social Security number.

What do surfers, kayakers and Neanderthals have in common?
It's a condition seen a lot in surfers, so it's known as surfer's ear (although it's also common in divers and kayakers). Trinkaus said. 'In particular, it reinforces the foraging abilities and resource diversity of the Neandertals'.

Not being able to pay your bills through a browser is a truly baffling insufficiency for a modern credit card. But if you have an Apple Card, just do not forget to hold on to your iPhone extra tight - if you lose your phone, it's like also losing your wallet.
