Apple has today rolled out its unified Gift Card to Canada and Australia, letting users make purchases in the Apple store and on iTunes with a single gift card.
As noted by Basic Apple Guy:
Apple has launched the Apple Gift Card in Canada, merging their Apple Store & iTunes gift cards into a unified gift card!
As Apple says the cards can be used to buy products and accessories from the Apple store, but also apps, games, music, movies, TV shows, iCloud and more.
Apple rolled out the new Apple Gift Card last year, from our report:
Apple has introduced a new type of gift card that takes its digital and physical stores and brings them both under a single roof for the first time.
Previously, Apple sold gift cards that could be used in Apple Stores alongside one that could only be used in the App Store and iTunes. Now, a single card can be used for both of those things – no more buying the wrong card at the store!
Customers in Canada will soon be able to spend their cards in the new Toronto Apple store which is beginning to take shape. As reported earlier this week the store's trademark glass panels are slowly being installed. The new store will occupy the first three floors of Toronto's new The One tower at Yonge and Bloor.
