Automatic imports for Apple Card?

One of my favorite features of YNAB is the direct import from banks. In the event that I forget to add a transaction or am too busy, I don't have to try to look through my bank statement online to try to add all the transactions I missed to make sure they are in YNAB.

I was intrigued by the new Apple Card that was released and signed up. I've made another account for it in YNAB and have already done manual imports for the transactions I've completed. I know that Apple Card works differently than most other credit cards because they have online banking and other options. However, Apple Card works only on mobile and is managed in the wallet app on iOS. 

My question is: will Apple Card be able to have an automatic import option into YNAB? Is this even a possibility?

  • From Apple’s support site: “Exporting data from Apple Card to a financial app like Mint is not currently supported”

    It’s up to Apple first.

  • Hi Anthony !

    Tomato Tamale is exactly right! Unfortunately, the ball is currently in Apple's court, and they've elected not to provide an export option.

    While it's always possible Apple may support data export in the future, for now Apple card transactions can only be viewed in the Wallet app on an iOS device—and that's by design. Since one of Apple Card's primary features is its unique architecture, it's possible that data aggregation may never be feasible.

    The good news is that you still can add the Apple Card to your budget as an unlinked credit card account, and enter transactions using one of our other transaction entry options. The mobile app is great for recording spending on-the-go (gas and groceries) and Scheduled Transactions are perfect for recurring expenses (rent and utility bills).

    I hope that helps! :)

      Faness I totally understand it is up to apple and I have a way around it for now, I was just curious if YNAB had any plans to talk with apple about making it available.

    • Anthony Usually, we can request a financial institution be made available for direct import suggesting it to our import partner. However, since Apple has made it clear this isn't a feature they want to support at the moment, we're at a bit of a stand still.

      Apple is trying an innovative approach to credit spending that works solely in-house with their devices. For that reason, I doubt they open export options anytime soon, but I hope I'm wrong!
