Hmmm. If this did happen, they would market it as "The New Bank" because you don't want your money in an old bank, and then millions would buy into it. Another thing for Apple to have you by the b**ls so you have to do what they want.
Side note. Turned on the store demo ipad yesterday and the terms and conditions is what, like 46 pages long??? Wtf? Who reads that. Shady Shady.

Oh, I'm sorry. I can't divulge information about that customer's secret, illegal account.
...Oh crap. I shouldn't have said he was a customer... Oh, crap. I shouldn't have said it was secret... Oh, crap! I certainly shouldn't have said it was illegal! [sits back, fanning himself] Ah, it's too hot today.

nobody would like to hand over their hard earned money to bunch of greedy a$$****$.
P.S. - if they enter in the banking industry it would be called magical. and they would probably sue all the other banks because apple invented banking.

"We can put that check in a money market mutual fund, then we'll re-invest the earnings into foreign currency accounts with compounding interest aaaand it's gone"

The irony of this is that Apple wouldnt be the most crooked company in the industry. At least initially...
