The Apple Card might be released as soon as the first half of August. The Cupertino, California company hasn’t said much about the credit card it’s creating with Goldman Sachs since its March reveal, but Bloomberg reported Friday that it’s weeks away.

The report suggests the project is on schedule for the summer release date, Apple announced in March. iPhone owners will be able to sign up for the card via the Wallet app.

Last month, a report said Apple expanded the Card’s beta test on iOS 12.4 and the upcoming iOS 13.
