If you’re an avid iOS user, then there’s a high chance that you download apps and games on a regular basis from the App Store, or movies and songs from the iTunes Store. You can do so by either using your credit card, or by simply utilizing a pre-paid iTunes Gift Card.

Don’t panic, as we’ll walk you through the process of redeeming an iTunes Gift Card on your device in a small bunch of easy to understand steps.

Redeem iTunes Gift Card On iOS

1. Launch the App Store app from your device’s home screen.

2. Scroll all the way down.

3. You’ll see a button labelled ‘Redeem.’ Simply tap on it. It’s quite possible that you’ll be required to enter your Apple ID password at this point. Do so when prompted for it.


4. You now have two options to go about your business, either by using the device’s camera to redeem the gift card, or by entering the code manually. Select the option that fulfills your requirements more.



We suggest opting for the ‘Use Camera’ option as it’s the quickest and easiest method to redeem a gift card. And all it takes is to point the device’s camera at the redeem code itself, after which the code will be verified with Apple and you’ll end up with iTunes credit to be used against apps, games, movies, TV shows and whatnot.
