At Apple Stores and select retailers, you can add funds to an iTunes Pass. You can then use those funds to make purchases from the App Store, iTunes Store, or Apple Books, or for iCloud storage.

If you're not at an Apple Store or select retailer, you can also add funds directly to your Apple ID using the payment method that you have on file.

Store features and availability might vary depending on your country or region. Learn what's available in your country or region.
