While these issues have been affecting US users for the day, Apple just announced that Apple Card is bringing new Savings to account for Daily Cash.

In the coming months, Apple Card users will be able to open this new high-yield Savings account and have their Daily Cash automatically deposited into it. The company says there are no fees, no minimum deposits, and no minimum balance requirements. Users can spend, send, and save Daily Cash directly from Wallet.

“Savings enables Apple Card users to grow their Daily Cash rewards over time, while also saving for the future,” said Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay and Apple Wallet. “Savings delivers even more value to users’ favorite Apple Card benefit — Daily Cash — while offering another easy-to-use tool designed to help users lead healthier financial lives.”
