The main difference between the plans is the number of servers you can boost.

So, make your decision, and tap on the plan you would like.

It’s important that the subscription you have picked is less than the amount of credit you have on your Apple ID as well.

You may be confused about how you can pay using your gift card credit.

Read through the information on the Apple Pay menu and follow the instructions on how you need to confirm your payment.
