It reported that consumers have an average of 0.37% earnings in their bank account savings.

Furthermore, Apple users can now put their funds into a savings account without minimum deposits and balance requirements. They can set up their accounts in the Wallet app as Daily Cash will automatically be deposited into their savings.

Indian Apple Stores to be Opened
