Apple is making it easier to keep spending Apple Cash online, with the iOS 17.4 beta allowing users to create a virtual card number.
Apple Cash, the prepaid debit card included as part of an Apple Card account, can usually be spent via Apple Pay just like other credit and debit cards. For online stores where Apple Card isn’t accepted, Apple is introducing a solution to the problem.
Once created, the prepaid Apple Cash card appears in Wallet just like the Apple Card, along with CVV2 and new number request options.
So far, it appears that the virtual card is available for Apple Card users who are also taking part in the beta. There is a chance it could become more publicly accessible once iOS 17.4 is officially released, but it could also be held back for a more formal feature launch down the road.
