Apple Card Is Under Fire for Gender Discrimination

Goldman Sachs, the bank responsible for issuing Apple‘s new credit card, is being investigated for gender discrimination following a series of tweets by a customer sharing the different credit limits given to him and his wife upon applying for the card. The consumer, David Heinemeier Hansson, reportedly received 20 times the credit limit that his wife was issued.

Hansson revealed that he and his wife file joint tax returns and that his wife has a better credit score than he does. After the tweets went viral, New York’s Department of Financial Services confirmed that an investigation was being conducted.

“The department will be conducting an investigation to determine whether New York law was violated and ensure all consumers are treated equally regardless of sex,” a spokesperson told Bloomberg.

Additionally, Hansson’s wife’s Apple Card credit limit was increased to match his following the backlash. To little surprise, he remained displeased.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak went on to reveal that he experienced a similar issue, as he was given 10 times the credit limit as his wife.

The Apple Card, which is Goldman’s first credit card, launched this past August.
