Apple has launched a new feature that lets you buy and sell gold for cash, and it’s a move that the company says is designed to “reduce the cost of gold in your wallet”.

    Apple announced the new gold floor feature at its WWDC 2017 developer conference on Monday.

    It will allow you to buy and trade your gold at one of the company.

    To get started, you’ll need to open your Apple wallet and tap “buy”.

    From there, you can then tap “sell”.

    That’s it.

    Gold is still worth 1,000 US cents per ounce at the moment, but it is currently priced at $1,200 per ounce.

    Apple said it wanted to make the feature “the most intuitive and efficient way to buy gold” and “to incentivise people to buy more”.

    It’s part of a larger plan to reduce the cost and pollution of the world’s metals.

    Apple previously started offering discounts for gold purchases with the launch of its gold-themed iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in 2015.

    The company recently announced it would buy the US-based miner Rio Tinto in a deal valued at $US7.5bn ($8.5 billion).

    Apple has also been working on a gold-centric app for iOS, macOS, and tvOS, with the hope of launching a mobile app for gold next year.
