How to activate your physical Apple CardSeptember 3, 2019
If you’re just now receiving your physical Apple Card, then you’re ready to activate it. And Apple couldn’t have made it any simpler to do so.
But for those who need extra help, this short tutorial shows you how to activate your titanium Apple Card.
Activate your Apple Card
Your Apple Card arrives in a nice little envelope. When you open it up, you’ll see the Activate Your Card verbiage followed by “Open Wallet app and follow instructions”. So, just leave your Apple Card in its pretty packaging and then follow these steps to activate it.
Open the Wallet app, select your Apple Card, and tap the Activate Your Card link in the notification area of that screen under Your Card Has Arrived.
As the instructions say, hold your iPhone near the packaging that your Apple Card arrived in.
Tap Activate Your Card and then tap Done.
And there you go! Your shiny, new, titanium Apple Card is ready to use at stores, restaurants, and other locations.
