Redeem iTunes gift cards with your iPhone camera in iOS 7


We don’t post a lot of news here at Gift Cards on Sale, we try and just stick to the deals. However, when I saw this article over at AppleFanSite I thought that it was worth sharing with you guys.

I don’t know about you, but I really hate having to manually enter in all those voucher codes into iTunes – especially when you buy 10 x $20 gift cards at 25% off, even though you’ve still got over $100 in credit sitting in your account! That takes up valuable time that could be spent consuming some of the great media and apps available in the App Store.

Well, it looks as though a nifty new feature is finding it’s way into Apple’s new iOS 7 where you can redeem a gift card simply by taking a photo of the code!

Apple is currently in the process of updating the design of the back of their gift cards to support the new feature, and it is unknown how many (if any) of the new cards are actually available in Australia. The code needs to be in a box for it to be supported (see pic below). You’ve actually been able to do it since November last year using your Mac’s webcam and facetime.


Let us know in the comments if you’ve seen the new cards, or been able to redeem them through your computer’s webcam.
