The card's early credit loan performance is still a far cry from those of top banks, however, though those firms have large portfolios of cards to consider.

But Apple's and Goldman Sachs' reported move of approving subprime users for Apple Card could cause its lending numbers to climb quickly and help it compete with comparable credit cards.
