However, until now, Revolut only offered Lithuanian IBANs. However, the neobank announced on Wednesday the deployment of French IBANs, now allowing you to make payments by direct debit, open an account with a mobile operator or collect your salary on your Revolut account without complication.

According to the information obtained by the leaker, the watch would retain a rectangular screen and its notched crown. However, the edges of the watch would be much flatter, reminiscent of the design initially expected for the Apple Watch Series 7.
