The innovative savings account, dubbed "AppleSave," will be accessible through the Apple Wallet app and offers a higher-than-average annual percentage yield (APY). With the AppleSave account, Apple users can enjoy the convenience of managing their finances within the Apple ecosystem, while benefiting from competitive interest rates and top-notch security.
AppleSave aims to provide a seamless experience, integrating with other Apple services such as Apple Pay, Apple Card, and Apple Cash. Users can quickly transfer funds between their accounts, set up direct deposits, and monitor their account balance and transaction history all within the Apple Wallet app.
Goldman Sachs will be the custodian bank for the AppleSave accounts, managing deposits and providing banking services. This partnership builds on the success of the Apple Card, a credit card product launched in 2019 as a joint venture between the two companies.
The AppleSave account will also feature a unique savings goal-setting feature, allowing users to visualize and track their financial objectives within the app. This feature is designed to encourage better savings habits and financial planning.
The move comes as Apple continues to expand its financial services offerings, further solidifying its position as a key player in the fintech space. The partnership with Goldman Sachs demonstrates the tech giant's commitment to providing innovative solutions that cater to the needs of its growing customer base.
The AppleSave high-yield savings account is expected to roll out later this year, with more details to be announced in the coming months.
