    Yeah they have a physical storefront in every state so, as a bank, they would need to follow the specific financial laws of each state. Gets super complicated because you end up with different interest rates depending on where the customer lives.

      Even if they decided to do it themselves, they’d spin up a subsidiary to do the actual banking. No way Apple would want their retail stores having to live up the the rather strict standards of banks.
