Earth Day is coming up on April 22 and ahead of it, Apple is bringing some fun customization to transit cards in China. Meanwhile, the award-winning iOS app for kids Pok Pok Playroom has received an Earth Day update.
Spotted by Aaron and shared on Twitter, Apple is promoting the use of public transit in China for Earth Day. Along with a message to “Go Green,” Apple is bringing some customization fun with the option to choose between several unique digital transit card designs in the Wallet app.
