How to Buy an App Store & iTunes Gift Card on Mac?

What is a gift card?

It can provide a world of entertainment as advertised, such as millions of apps from the App Store, the access to groundbreaking games on Apple Arcade, tens of millions of songs with Apple Music, original shows and moves with Apple TV+, an amazing selection of books from Apple Books, and countless magazines and major newspapers with Apple News+.

But please note that you can neither use your credit to purchase gifts for someone else/more gift cards, nor share credit with family memebers (even if you use Family Sharing).

Steps to Send Gift Card to A Friend or Family Member

First of all, the recipient of your gift must have an Apple ID in your country or region (the service is not available in every country and region though).

  • To gift individual songs, please use your Mac or PC.
  • To gift apps, TV shows, or movies, please use an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
