May 10 (Reuters) - Goldman Sachs and Apple Inc are preparing to launch a joint credit card as early as next year, the Wall Street Journal reported here on Thursday.
Apple will replace its rewards-card partnership with Barclays, the report added.
In February, Apple was in talks with Goldman to offer financing to shoppers buying Apple products, including iPhones, the Journal had reported at the time.
A Goldman Sachs spokesman declined to comment, while Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting By Aparajita Saxena in Bengaluru; Editing by Sai Sachin Ravikumar)
