Late last month, the Canadian government approved two trademark applications filed by Apple: Apple Card and Apple Cash. The approval may hint at the potential for Apple Card expansion outside the United States for the first time.
Yesterday, we reported that Apple Card users may soon be able to share their account with family members, and, today, this may include Canadian customers in the future.
As reported by the Canadian tech blog iPhone in Canada, Apple has won two trademarks the company had filed in the country back on July 15th, 2019. These trademarks were filed by Baker & McKenzie LLP and awarded on January 25th, 2021.
Apple Card has been a U.S. exclusive since it launched in 2017, thanks to a partnership with Goldman Sachs. Apple Card is a simple, privacy-focused credit card designed by Apple, that is offered in both a digital and physical titanium card.
Customers can earn 3% on purchases through Apple, 2% on purchases made with Apple Pay, and 1% on purchases made with the physical card.
It’s unclear when Apple Card will ever launch in Canada. But, the approvals of these two trademarks may mean it’s in the works.
