The credit card announced by Apple on March 25, 2019, at the Apple Special Event began to be distributed to users in the test group. Users applying through the Wallet application started receiving their cards and published the first images of the card.
Apple recently opened the option to apply to the Apple Card via the Wallet application for several randomly selected users. Users in the test group are slowly beginning to get titanium cards.
Physical Apple Card has arrived. I have surprisingly strong feelings about having a Goldman Sachs logo in my life? Anyway, you can see how much thicker it is than my plastic or metal cards. pic.twitter.com/hXi3q4ijoJ

Nilay Patel, one of the chief editors of The Verge, shared the photo of the Apple Card that she received on Twitter and pointed out that the card is thicker than other plastic and metal cards.
Matthew Panzarino, one of the chief editors of TechCrunch, compared the weight of the card he received with the other cards.
Card weights from my crappy kitchen scale (ignore coffee detritus)
1. Apple Card 14.7g (quoted is 14.8 so probably rounded up)
2. AMEX platinum 18.4g
3. Chase Sapphire Preferred 12.2g pic.twitter.com/bCZMpmUhNN

Aaron Andino, one of the applicants for the Apple Card and one of the randomly selected users, released the box opening video of the card that he received. (The days have come when we will see the opening of a box even a credit card.)
Physical Apple Card made of titanium; The Apple logo has a clean design with a chip and the user’s name. The card does not have a card number or expiration date. The reason for this is that the information is better protected if the card is stolen. All card information is available in the Wallet app.
The CVV number does not appear on the back of the card for the same reason. Only the Goldman Sachs logo and Mastercard logo and a magnetic stripe appear on the card.
Apple will allow all US citizens aged 18 and older to apply for the card at the end of August. When the card is available for public use, iPhone users will be able to apply to the Apple Card via the Wallet application in minutes.
