To add funds to your Apple ID, use the payment method that you have on file or redeem App Store & iTunes Gift Cards.

After you add funds, you can use your Apple ID balance to make purchases in the App Store, iTunes Store, or Apple Books, or to buy iCloud Storage. The balance is used for each purchase that you make until there isn't any balance left.

If you plan to delete your Apple ID or change your country or region
