Apple has launched its all-encompassing gift cards in Canada, allowing customers to gift a card to a friend or family member that allows them to buy anything Apple, from merchandise to content and services.
The Apple Gift Cards replace the Apple Store and App Store & iTunes Gift Cards, come in a variety of denominations, and can be send via mail, gift-wrapped, or delivered digitally via e-mail. There are five Apple logo illustrations available along with a collectible sticker.
Apple provides some ideas of how the gift cards can be used. With a $25 Apple Gift Card, for example, a recipient could sign up for three months of Apple Arcade for gaming, three months of Apple TV+ for watching TV shows and movies or grab some great digital books.
A $50 gift card is ideal for a family, affording five months of Apple Music access, four months of Apple Fitness+, two months of Apple News+, or sign up for a variety of health and wellness apps from the App Store.
Larger denomination gift cards might be more attractive for putting towards buying products. With $100, for example, you can put it towards an iPhone, AirPods, Apple Watch, iPad, or Apple TV; or grab accessories to use with Apple devices you already own, like an Apple Pencil, a new Apple Watch band, and more. A $100 gift card could also be used for a family to sign up to seven months of iCloud storage with shared 2TB of storage space.
In August, top retailers will begin offering Apple Gift Card.
