Apple Store Gift Cards Now Supported By Passbook In U.K. & Other Countries


Apple pushed out a nice new update to its Apple Store app for iPhone on Tuesday, which brings Apple Store gift cards to Passbook in the United Kingdom and other countries. The feature made its initial debut just over a year ago, but until now, it was only available to users in the United States.

“Gift cards by email now available in select countries,” the update’s release notes read. “Buy and email them to friends and family right from the app. These gift cards are easily integrated with the Passbook app to use at your favorite Apple Retail Store.”

The new feature is available in the U.K. and other European countries (though not all of them), as well as Australia and Canada. This update also brings “various improvements and performance enhancements” to the Apple Store app.

You’ll find the new update in the App Store now.
