Lewis is optimistic about Apple's ability to grow the Journal's readership despite many competitors being "down on" the new service. "Mobile payments need to evolve their value proposition to get consumers to switch from their plastic card payments".

With its new credit card Apple is betting that younger consumers will value convenience and privacy over generous cash rewards.

The move comes as mobile payments are poised to get a boost from efforts in the USA to encourage retailers to accept tap-to-pay cards, which use the same near-field communication technology as Apple Pay. That's why users will not have to move about this card all the time.

"But given that Gen Z values practicality, independence and change in other aspects of their lives, Apple Card may be perceived as something that makes them "feel good feels" about how their finances are doing and about the life they're living".

According to John-Kurt Pliniussen from the Smith School of Business at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., credit card companies will start competing with Apple from now on in order to match what the tech giant is offering.

Now with the streaming business, Apple seems keen to tap into another segment that too can be considered to be linked to the hardware it sells. But it is not to be underestimated. And when you notice an exciting title in one of the stories, then it is highly possible she was behind it!
