Apple has become one of the most recognizable and influential brands in the world. From its innovative products to its user-friendly operating system, Apple has been a leader in technology for decades. And now, with Apple Pay, users can pay for goods and services with their Apple devices even more seamlessly.

With Apple Pay, you can make purchases online or in store with just a few taps on your device. You can also add an Apple Gift Card to your Apple Pay wallet to make purchases even easier. An Apple Gift Card is a prepaid card that alows you to purchase items from any Apple Store or App Store. It’s the perfect way to give someone a special gift while still allowing them to choose their own items.

Adding an Apple Gift Card to your wallet is simple and secure. All you have to do is open the Wallet app on your device and tap “Edit Passes” at the bottom of the screen. On the next screen tap on “Scan Code” and then scan the QR code on the back of the gift card. Once scanned, you’ll be asked if you want to open Safari, so do that and then you’ll see the card show up in your wallet, ready for use!

Using an Apple Gift Card with Apple Pay makes shopping easier than ever before. With just a few taps you can make purchases at any participating store or online retailer without having to go through checkout lines or type in credit card information each time. Plus, since all of your payment information is stored securely in your wallet, it’s easy to keep track of every purchase you make.

At this point in time, using an Apple Gift Card with Apple Pay is only available at select retailers — but more stores are being added all the time as more people switch over from traditional payment methods like cash and credit cards. So if you’re looking for a convenient way to shop without having to worry about carrying around cash or credit cards — adding an Apple Gift Card to your wallet might be just what you need!
