The second developer beta of the iOS 12.4 was released yesterday, and not much has changed in the way of details. This recent update comes in the wake of the first beta that was rolled out merely six days ago, MacRumors reported.

So far, there are no apparent changes brought by the recent iOS 12.4 update, but Apple could be priming their users for its upcoming Apple Card. There’s still no confirmation when this card will drop only that it will be available this summer, so definitely watch out during those months.

As for what it can do, the Cupertino-based company has provided several enticing rewards for those who will use the service. Called the Daily Cash, this reward program incentivizes users by paying them back three percent for every purchase made in the Apple Store and iTunes downloads. For other purchases, Apply Pay will reward the user with two percent. It goes without saying that iOS 12.4 will be quite exciting for users, especially with this new mode of payment inching closer.

Paying for monthly bills, for example, will be a cinch once this service launches. Applying is pretty easy, although Apple will still need vital information from users like work history, social security number, and more. It is a credit card, after all. While the iOS 12.4 will allow people to pay using their phone, Apple will also be providing a physical copy of it in the event that Apple Pay isn’t working, MacWorld reported.

However, it’s important to remember that the Daily Cash reward program will only incentivize you with one percent instead of the abovementioned figures. No annual fees, late fees, or foreign transaction fees will be charged to the user. Regarding the interest rate, the company’s website lists it at 13.24 percent to 24.24 percent with the possibility of these figure changing by the time Apple Card and iOS 12.4 launches.
