How to Send iTunes Gifts via Email

itunes gift cardIn the era of smart technology, gifting is so simple. After all, any application or another item in the App Store, iTunes Store or iBooks Store can be donated to a person you love.

You can buy any app through the online payment method in your Apple ID file. Moreover, you can send someone as an online credit, so that the person oneself can buy something from iTunes, iBooks or App Stores.

To send gifts to beloved ones, all you need is the last version of iTunes on your Mac or PC; the current iOS on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

Take into account, that gift beneficiary must own an Apple ID in the same country/region as sender does.

Before following our instructions for sending a gift, decide what you would like to present – an amount or an item.
