The conditions of use that must be accepted in order to use have come to light Apple Card They clearly specify the Jailbreak ban on our iPhone associated with said payment card.
Goldman sachs, Tim Cook's financial partner in the Apple Card project, has already published the agreement with the client so there is no doubt about it. This agreement shows that it will not be a conventional credit card, as it comes with some conditions exclusive to Apple.
As expected, on an issue as important and serious as payment with a device, Apple will be very sharp and will not allow you to manipulate an iPhone with which we can pay, introducing applications that have not gone through the control of the company. Is the known Jailbreak, an unofficial iOS, modified, in which we can install applications of doubtful origin that for one reason or another are not in the Apple Store, therefore without control by the company, with the risk involved.
Something like that was expected, since historically Apple has never been too permissive in the use of jailbreak. Any application that is available in the Apple Store, has been programmed under very strict rules of the company, which reviews each app and its updates so that this is fulfilled. It is the eternal complaint of Apple's detractors, their total control and lack of flexibility. It is also the advantage of its followers, the peace of mind that any application you install is safe.
The registration process and approval for Apple Card will be done through the iOS Wallet app, with the agreement that states that the device used must be “eligible”. This seems to apply in the card registration process, which means that the subscriber must remain with the iOS firmware. This means that in the registration process it will be verified that the firmware of the iPhone is the original. If it is not, it simply will not be installed. If you come up with the great idea of first installing Apple Card and then doing Jailbreak, your access to the Apple Card may be denied at any time and without prior notice.
At first Apple Card will be available in late August, as confirmed by Tim Cook.
