Apple has introduced a new unique gift card in the United States for all things Apple. First spotted by Culture, the card can be used in the App Store and other online services, but you can also use it to purchase products and accessories in the Apple Store.
Previously, there were two separate Apple gift cards available: iTunes cards, which can be used for App Store, iTunes Store and iCloud storage purchases; and Apple Store gift cards, used to purchase items from Apple’s online retail stores and brick and mortar.
Apple has a dedicated page on its website that explains what the new card does and how it can be used. “Products, accessories, apps, games, music, movies, TV shows, iCloud, and more. This gift card does it all. And then a little bit,” reads the label.
As before, customers can decide what amount they want on the cards, which can also be used to raise money directly in the Apple Account Balance for payment for things like Apple products, accessories, apps, games , music, movies, TV shows, and more.
The cards also have a new design, with a colorful Apple logo. There are a total of eight different designs if you request a gift card by email, and five designs for the physical version.
The web page goes on to explain that U.S. users can continue to use their current Apple Store cards, while existing App Store and iTunes cards can now also be used in the U.S. to purchase products. from the Apple Store.
Apple is currently only offering the new cards in the US, but it is likely that they will make their way to other countries in the near future.
