Apple has introduced a new single gift card in the US for all things Apple. First noticed by iCulture, 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, two separate Apple gift cards were available: iTunes cards, which can be used for the App Store, the iTunes Store, and iCloud storage purchases; and Apple Store gift cards used to purchase merchandise at Apple’s online stores and brick and mortar stores.
Apple has a special 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 some,” reads the sign.
As before, customers can decide how much they want on the cards, which can also be used to add money directly to an Apple account balance to pay for things like Apple products, accessories, apps, games, music, movies, TV broadcasts and More ▼.
The cards also have a new design, with Apple color logos. There are a total of eight different designs if you request a gift card by email, and five designs for the physical version.
The website explains that users in the United States can continue to use their current Apple Store cards, while existing App Store and iTunes cards can now be used in the United States to purchase Apple Store products.
Apple currently offers the new cards only in the United States, but they are likely to make their way to other countries in the near future.
