How does an App Store & iTunes Gift Card work?

With an Apple Gift Card you can top up your Apple ID credit. You can then purchase apps in the App Store, download music or activate your music subscription in the iTunes Store. Perhaps you like reading books? Take a look at the iBooks app. You can also use your Apple ID credit to upgrade your iCloud storage. That really comes in handy if you have many important photos or documents that you want to keep safe.

Is this your first time topping up your credit using an App Store & iTunes Card? Or do you want to give this card as a gift to someone else, but you are not sure how this gift card works?
