Apple's 'sexist' bank card investigated by United States regulator
A United States monetary regulator has exposed a study into claims Apple's credit card offered various credit limitations for males and ladies.
It follows complaints - including from Apple's co-founder Steve Wozniak - that algorithms used to create restrictions may be inherently biased against women.
Nyc's Department of Financial Services (DFS) has contacted Goldman Sachs, which operates the Apple Card.
Any discrimination, deliberate or perhaps not, "violates ny law", the DFS stated.
The Bloomberg news agency reported on Saturday that technology business owner David Heinemeier Hansson had reported that the Apple Card offered him 20 times the borrowing limit that their wife got.
In a tweet, Mr Hansson stated the disparity had been despite their spouse having a significantly better credit rating.
