Apple says that an ongoing outage is preventing some Apple Card users from paying their bill and accessing other features in the Wallet app on iOS. The outage started at around 8:45 a.m. ET.
Apple writes on its System Status webpage:
Some users may not be able to pay their Apple Card bill, lock/unlock their physical card, request a new or replacement physical card, or request a new card number.
It’s unclear how widespread this outage is, but Apple’s System Status tool indicates that “some users are affected.” Apple, unfortunately, doesn’t offer any information more specific than that.
I attempted to schedule an Apple Card payment this morning but was unable to do so. When I got to the final step and double-clicked my iPhone’s side button, the payment window just said “processing” indefinitely.
