Apple used to offer two separate gift cards, including an Apple Store gift card for in-store products and an iTunes gift card for purchasing content such as apps, games, TV shows, and movies. These gift cards have since been combined into the all-in-one Apple gift card, where it says “the gift card for everything Apple” on the packaging.

To redeem an Apple Gift Card on an iPhone or iPad, open the App Store, tap your photo in the top right, and tap “Redeem Gift Card or Code.”
