Goldman Sachs' Apple Card Is Under Fire for Being Gender Biased

Official investigations have started.

Since its anticipated launch earlier this year, the Apple Card has been a coveted accessory among tech enthusiasts and fans of the ever-growing label, but now the credit card service is under fire for reportedly being gender biased.

“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,” wrote New York Times best-selling author David Heinemeier Hansson on Twitter, adding that after reaching out to customer support, Apple‘s response was that “it’s just the algorithm.”

Following the Tweet, other owners of the Apple Card shared similar experiences, including Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak himself. Apple has rectified the “mistake,” but the New York Department of Financial Services has announced an investigation into Goldman Sachs and the Apple Card. “The department will be conducting an investigation to determine whether New York law was violated and ensure all consumers are treated equally regardless of sex,” said a spokesperson.

Stay tuned as any more information following the investigation surfaces.
