Finally approved for the Apple Card. Recovering from a bad credit situation and have been working on getting my scores higher.
Would occasionally check since its a SP and 95% of the time it was instant denial. Only 2 times it went to "Currently Being Reviewed" and the 2nd time they finally approved me for a $1,000 credit line. The main denial reason from the recent SPs was "experienced a recent charge off" which was already paid/settled, but it's an issue since it has not fell off of my reports yet. I was able to get my credit to a good enough spot to where they were willing to give a chance especially since my income has increased.
I'm sure many people are in a situation like me where their credit situation is good now but have a prior situation holding them back. If you're trying to get an Apple Card don't lose hope. Just keep improving your scores and credit profile every month, and check when you feel like you have a shot.
Congrats! Would love to get in with them but I'm not quite there yet. Hopefully later in the summer.
@gatorlover You'll get there sooner than you think. Just watch and analyze your credit reports like a hawk every single month.
Saw a few other Apple approvals recently, they must be kind of hot right now.
Nice to see you your approval, enjoy it.
