Apple came up with a way to help you spend money when it released the Apple Card credit card. Later, it came up with a way to save some money by implementing an Apple Savings account within Apple Card.
To complete the circle, you can use money in your Apple Savings to make Apple Card payments. However, this way of paying isn’t instantaneously accessible to the user, even though Apple Card and Savings are in the same app. You’d think that you could tap to make a payment and an option to pay from Apple Savings magically appears, but it doesn’t.
To make this work, you must manually add the Apple Saving account as a payment method for the Apple Card. Fortunately, it’s easy and quick to do, and once you do it, it always appears as an option when you’re making a payment. Here are the instructions on how to set up Apple Card to take payments from Apple Savings.
We have a guide to the Apple Card if you want to learn more about the credit card. An Apple Card is required to open an Apple Savings account.
