Apple has updated the Wallet app with a new "Apple Account Card" option, replacing the outdated iTunes Pass.

In April, it was discovered that Apple's iTunes Pass was likely going to be rebranded into "Apple Account Card."

The change, spotted by 9to5Mac, was seen as the next logical step in moving away from the iTunes branding.

The Apple Account card functions the same way as iTunes Pass did and can be used to purchase subscriptions, music, movies, apps, and Apple products.

However, one notable change is that the Apple Account card can be used with Apple Pay. This allows users to check out at the Apple Store using tap to pay, rather than using the previous QR code system.

Apple has been moving away from the iTunes branding in recent years. Back in 2019, the company killed the app in macOS Catalina and split its functionality into three separate and standalone applications for music, TV, and podcasts. It has kept the app largely the same on Windows, however.
