With the official launch of Apple Card set for this Summer, we now have a first look at the physical version of the payment solution.

According to mobile leaker Ben Geskin, Apple employees have received what is believed to be the first delivery of the alternative credit card. From the first look, we can see that Apple Cards will come in vibrant consumer packaging which features a hidden NFC tag and pairing instructions similar to the “Wake iPhone and hold here” process established with the AirPods. After pairing, the card will be associated with the digital Apple Card located in the Wallet app on the iPhone.

The physical Apple Card is constructed of solid titanium and comes laser-etched with an owner’s name. Aside from the owner’s name, the front of the card features a chip and Apple logo, while the back of the card features a magstripe accompanied by the logos of banking partners Mastercard and Goldman Sachs. Doing away with printed expiry dates and account numbers, those traditional identifying elements are found on the digital version of the card.

Take a first look at the physical Apple Card above and look for the payment solution to officially launch this Summer.

In case you missed it, Apple’s upcoming iOS 13 update is rumored to drop support for iPhone 6 Plus and older models.
