Lately I’ve noticed three changes related to Apple Card: 1) transfers from/to my bank account to Apple Card are no longer next-day as they’ve been for me since inception, 2) the app on iOS 13 failing to update transactions in quasi-real time as it’s done for me since inception, and 3) many more emails. The first two I’m assuming are outside of my control, the former likely cost-cutting measures at GS, the latter QA/QC issues like we’ve seen elsewhere with Apple software. The final point though I wonder if I can affect.
Since roughly Aug 1 I’ve started receiving email whenever I transfer funds from my bank account to Apple Card. Ironically, in several instances (not all though) I’ve gotten those emails before the Apple Card app listed the transfer (see point 2 above). I never used to get such emails. The transfer just happened and the record was in the app’s list (plus of course the monthly statement). The monthly statement emails used to be the only ones I got. Then came the emails about payment extension due to covid (despite the app already alerting to that). And now these emails detailing every single transfer of funds. It does feel rather spammy. I wonder if it’s a coincidence that this started right after Apple launched their web interface for Apple Card.
Anyway, I wonder if there’s a setting for this that I might have accidentally turned on, or missed to turn off. I checked the app and couldn’t find anything there. I checked Settings > Notifications too even though I felt that was probably not the right location (it’s email I’m after, not iOS user notification). I couldn’t find anything at all. Did I miss it? Can anybody point me to it?
