At the presentation in March 2019, Apple paid attention to the design of the Apple Card, noting that the card is made of titanium, has a multi-layer coating, and the logo and name of the owner are engraved with a laser.
In August 2019, Apple published instructions on how to use the Apple Card to preserve its appearance.
The instructions say that you cannot use household cleaners, abrasives, solvents, ammonia, aerosols, or compressed air for cleaning. Apple also warns that certain fabrics, such as leather and denim, can cause permanent color changes. And storing the card along with other cards can cause scratches.
A Twitter user shared photos of an Apple Card after two months of wearing it in a leather wallet.
