Apple’s credit card the Apple Card is run by Goldman Sachs and there have been claims over the last week that the card may be sexist.
The original allegation was posted on Twitter by David Heinemeier Hansson you can see his tweet below, and now it has been revealed that this is being investigated by the New York Department of Financial Service.
The @AppleCard is such a fucking sexist program. My wife and I filed joint tax returns, live in a community-property state, and have been married for a long time. Yet Apple’s black box algorithm thinks I deserve 20x the credit limit she does. No appeals work.
