Step 1: Redeem Your Gift Card

The first step is to redeem your gift card. To do this, follow these simple steps:

  1. Open the App Store on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on your profile picture in the top right corner of the screen.
  3. Select “Redeem Gift Card or Code”.
  4. Enter the code on the back of your gift card and tap “Redeem”.

Once your gift card has been redeemed, you’ll see the balance in your account.

Step 2: Browse Games on The App Store

Now that you have redeemed your gift card, it’s time to browse for games in the App Store. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the App Store on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Select “Games” from the bottom menu.
  3. Browse through featured games or search for a specific game using the search bar at the top of the screen.

Step 3: Purchase a Game Using Your Gift Card Balance

Once you have found a game that you want to purchase, follow these simple steps:

  1. Select the game by tapping on it.
  2. Tap “Get” or “Buy” depending on whether it’s a free or paid game.
    • If it’s a free game:

    • Tap “Get” and then tap “Install”.
      If it’s a paid game:

    • Tap “Buy” and then select “Use Gift Card Balance” as your payment method.
