iTunes 11: Redeem Gift Cards Using Your Computer’s Camera


The all new iTunes 11 allows users to redeem their iTunes gift cards by simply taking a photo of the code on the back of the card with their computer’s camera, points out 9to5Mac. Apparently a new type of gift card will be required to use this feature.


Using the new feature, users will be able to quickly and easily redeem gift cards without having to worry about accurately typing in the unique 16-character code. The option does however require a card containing a box around the code to assist with recognition. Looks like Apple will be introducing camera-compatible iTunes gift cards pretty soon too.

    I’d be surprised if they don’t add support for the iPhone/iPod/iPads’ cameras also.
