Does the new AppleCard Discriminate against Women?
Since the card was released, numerous complaints have surfaced that Apple’s new credit card, the AppleCard, has algorithms that may discriminate against women. Specifically, a number of women have reported that they have received lower credit limits than their male spouses, although they have higher credit scores.
The AppleCard first came under fire when a software developer and entrepreneur wrote a series of tweets complaining that he got a credit limit 20 times that of his wife’s, despite the fact that the couple files tax returns jointly, and she has a higher credit score!
Similarly, several other men on Twitter replied to this initial tweet, outlining similar experiences and describing how their wives received significantly less favorable terms on their AppleCards than they did despite their wives looking like better credit risks on paper.
New York State has actually announced that they are investigating the algorithm used by Apple for their new AppleCard to determine the creditworthiness of its applicants.
