Apple Card and Apple Cash Trademarks Approved in Canada
The government of Canada has approved two trademark applications by Apple, specifically for Apple Card and Apple Cash.
Apple applied for the trademark ‘Apple Card’ and ‘Apple Cash’ back in July 2019, and recent action history shows both were approved on January 25, 2021, iPhone in Canada can confirm:
Apple Inc. is listed as the applicant, with the filings completed by agent Baker & McKenzie LLP.
Apple Card is the iPhone maker’s own “reinvented” credit card, currently only available in the United States. An Apple Card credit card easily is accessed via your iPhone and also a physical titanium card as well. There are no fees, 2% daily cash back and more from various partners.
As for Apple Cash, launched in the U.S. back in late 2017, it allows iPhone users to easily send and receive money with your debit card via Apple Pay, right within iMessage or by using Siri. Essentially, if Apple Cash were to launch in Canada, say good bye to sending Interac e-Transfers.
iOS 14.5 beta code contains ‘Apple Card Family’ features for multi-user accounts, while new financial health features have also been discovered by 9to5Mac to be coming in the Wallet app.
It’s unclear if Apple will ever launch Apple Cash and Apple Card in Canada, but it’s always a positive sign to see trademarks for new features approved.
