Goldman Sachs is looking to sever its connection with Apple as it reduces focus on its consumer business. It may enter into an agreement with American Express to facilitate this transition.

At present, individuals who possess the Apple credit card have access to the Apple savings account, as stated by Barron's. This account generates a yield of 4.15%.
