How to gift an iPhone or iPad application

This tutorial teaches you how to send an iPhone or iPad application to someone, using the iOS 6 Apple App Store. Take note that someone can only gift an application to another Via App Store if the person receiving the app is located in the same country as the sender. Most likely the Apple ID judges which App Store someone can download content from.

Important :

The App Store will ask for the following details when attempting to gift an application to someone :

  • Recipient’s email address
  • Special message (optional)
  • Date the recipient will receive the gift (optional)

It’s not that scary. Make sure to read Apple’s privacy policy before purchasing anything from the Apple App Store. If you have purchased an application before, then most likely you will not fear to purchase another. Gifting an application to a someone is just like purchasing the app for yourself – the only difference is that you’re not the one┬áreceiving┬áthe app after the purchase, however, the Apple ID email that you added as the recipient will.
