When you redeem a gift card on your iPhone, or if you get a refund for something in the iTunes store, you wind up with iTunes credit that is tied to your Apple ID. But if you don’t use all of that credit, then it is very easy to forget exactly how much you have left to spend.
Fortunately iOS 9 makes it a short process to locate this information on your iPhone. Once you have followed our guide below to determine the remaining iTunes gift card or credit balance on your Apple ID, you will know exactly how much money you have to spend on media or apps before iTunes starts charging the payment method that is tied to your account.
Here is how to check your iTunes gift card balance on an iPhone 6 –
- Open the iTunes app.
- Select the Music, Movies, or TV Shows option at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap the Featured tab at the top of the window.
- Scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen. Any credit will be listed under your Apple ID. If nothing is shown there, then there is not currently an iTunes gift card balance associated with your Apple ID.
These steps are also shown below with pictures –
Step 1: Tap the iTunes icon.
Step 2: Tap either the Music, Movies, or TV Shows tab at the bottom of the screen.
Step 3: Select the Featured option at the top of the screen.
Step 4: Scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen and locate the box with your Apple ID. Your remaining gift card balance (and any additional credit that you might have) are shown under the Apple ID.
