Resend App Store & iTunes Gifts

Learn how to resend gifts that you purchased for someone else from the App Store, iTunes Store, or iBooks Store.

If you sent an App Store & iTunes Gift and your recipient didn't get the email with the instructions on how to redeem it, you can resend them the gift from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, Mac, or PC. When you resend an App Store & iTunes Gift, the recipient will be sent a second attempted email with a link to redeem the gift.

You can resend App Store & iTunes Gifts as long as the item or money hasn’t been redeemed to any Apple ID.

From your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

  1. Tap Settings > [your name] > iTunes & App Store.
  2. Tap your Apple ID at the top of the screen, then tap View Apple ID. You might be asked to authenticate your Apple ID.
  3. Tap Gifts. If you don’t see Gifts, then you haven’t purchased any App Store & iTunes Gifts with this Apple ID recently.
  4. Tap the gift that you want to resend.
  5. Tap Resend Gift. You can edit or change the recipient email address for your App Store & iTunes Gift as long as your recipient hasn't redeemed your gift. To edit or change the recipient's email address, tap their email address on the Gift detail screen. Double check the spelling of the recipient's email address.
