Apple and Goldman Sachs are ending their partnership four years after joining forces on Apple’s credit card, according to The Wall Street Journal. The companies recently extended the deal until 2029, but Apple is proposing to terminate the contract in the next 12-15 months.

Last month, reports suggested that the bank was looking to exit its consumer lending business. Earlier this year, Apple said it wanted to pull out of the deal and turned to American Express to take over its part of the operations.

In a statement to CNBC, an Apple spokesperson said that the company will continue to work on the Apple Card and introduce new tools for customers.
