Apple releases iOS 12.4 beta 3

Today after the iPod Touch, the seventh generation Apple released the third beta of iOS 12.4. This is the fourth and probably the last major update that will get the operating system until the release of iOS 13. The update is now available for download to program participants pre-testing the status of registered developers. It is available as “over the air” if you have a stable connection to Wi-Fi, and a special section on the Apple website.

It is noteworthy that iOS 12.4 does not include any notable innovations, except for support for the Apple Card.

What is an Apple Card

The Apple Card is a service that is the ideological continuation of Apple Pay. But if the latter only allows you to bind existing card and pay for their purchases using a smartphone built-in NFC module, the first offers the possibility of producing the same card, as well as tools for controlling costs. To initially get the Apple Card, probably will be able only users in the USA due to the fact that the issue of “plastic” does Bank Goldman Sachs.

For users from Russia the lack of the Apple Card will not be a big tragedy. The fact that in our country the banking system – it is due to the relative youth – were able to advance in their development much further than in the US. The result of the easy banking application with interactive graphs of income and expenditure does not seem to us something fantastic, and is perceived as something self-evident.

Apple Titanium Card

However, except for the virtual Apple Card you can obtain in the Wallet app, Apple, together with Goldman Sachs will issue a physical card for users in countries where Apple Pay is not available. The real card is made of titanium, and will be able to offer a number of advantages that make it more attractive than competing solutions. Titanium Card Apple will offer its holder the highest level of reliability, 1% cashback on all purchases with a daily accrual and the lack of “body” data such as number, CVC code and date of expiration.

Updated: in addition, came the second beta version of tvOS 12.4 5.3 and watchOS.
