On the 25th of January the Canadian Trademark Office approved and registered Apple's trademark for 'Apple Card.' Apple filed for the trademark in July 2019 in Canada, with a priority date of January 2019 in Liechtenstein. That opens the door for Apple Card to be made available for Canadians in the not-too-distant future. A copy of the registered trademark is presented in our graphic below.

Apple filed their trademark under Nice Classification #36 covering the following: "Issuance of credit cards; credit card payment authorization, verification, and transaction processing services; electronic funds transfer and payment transaction processing."


Apple released ‌Apple Card‌ in the United States in August 2019, but it remains the only country in which the service is available.


The discovery of the Canadian trademark was first made by the founder of "iPhone in Canada" Gary NG.


Last year Counterpoint reported that one in two smartphones sold in Canada during Q2 2020 was an iPhone. The iPhone captured 52% of the Canadian market, well ahead of Samsung at 34%.


With such dedication to Apple's iPhone, Canadians are hoping that Apple's financial card will finally enter their country in the coming year. Only time will tell if their wish materializes.
