The Apple Card won’t use a traditional card number, instead generating virtual card numbers and confirmation codes for purchases, which can be obtained from the Wallet app on the iPhone.

The back of the Apple Card is just as empty and simple as the front, featuring embossed Goldman Sachs and Mastercard logos, along with a magstripe at the back. The card seems to weigh about 14.75 grams.
The Card comes to you in a plain white sleeve with the Apple Logo on the front. The inside of the sleeve is colorful with each color representing the different purchase categories that will be listed in the Wallet app under the same color.
Apple is planning to launch the Apple Card in the summer.
