If you’ve been given a physical gift card, your first step is to remove it from any packaging, and turn it around to show a bar code, along with the word iTunes at the top right.Although its placement varies between cards, each voucher features a label on the back – just like scratch card. Peeling this off should reveal a 16 digit number, where the information for the value of your card is held.Once you’ve located your gift card number, you have two options for how to redeem it. It’s simple on a Mac or PC, and if you’re using an iPhone or iPad, the process is even easier.How to redeem an iTunes voucher on an iPhone or iPad First open the App Store application on your iOS device, and then scroll down to the bottom of the screen. After being prompted to sign in with your Apple ID, all you need to do is enter your 16 digit password and click redeem.In some countries, you’re also able to use your iPhone or iPad’s camera to read the code, making things even easier.
How to redeem an iTunes voucher on a PC or Mac

If you’re using a computer or laptop the process is pretty similar, but you’ll need to open iTunes. If you’re running the latest version of iTunes, you’ll see a silhouette with your name underneath it, just to the left of the search bar.
After you’ve found it, click on the the silhouette and click Redeem.After that, all you need to do is make sure you’re logged in and then enter your 16 digit code. Again, just like the iDevice method, in some countries Apple lets you use your computer’s camera to read the code, making the whole process even slicker.If you’ve received an iTunes gift card by email, the process is even simpler. Just follow the link and you’ll be prompted to repeat one of the processes, depending on which device you’re using.Want to download music or an iBook? Your Apple ID works across accounts, meaning the balance in your account will be transferable between Apple services, so you can buy games, in-store purchases or any other content.

No, this isn’t literally a full-size graphics card shoved into a normal laptop – that would be absurdly bulky. Instead, it’s just the desktop GTX 980 chip taking the place of a cut-down 980M chip. Working in tandem with laptop manufacturers and Intel, Nvidia has managed to provide enough cooling to keep even an overclocked GPU and Skylake CPU from melting.If you’re still sceptical about the whole announcement, preferring to believe a laptop can’t possibly match the performance of a desktop PC, prepare to be impressed. Offering 35% more performance than the original GTX 980M, Nvidia claim that the GTX 980 is capable of pushing out a fantastic 61fps average for The Witcher 3 running at 1080p, and 84fps running Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

In the Unigine Heaven benchmark at the GTX 980 launch event, the demonstration laptop actually slightly outperformed a desktop with the same setup, scoring 2,066 to its 2,044 and hitting 82fps to the desktop PC’s 81.2fps respectively. With such marginal differences, there’s no doubt that this is a full-scaled GTX 980 housed within a portable shell.There’s little in the way of compromise. For those who still want a gung-ho multi-monitor setup when at home, laptops running the new 980 can support three 1080p panels, and there’s support for Nvidia G-Sync – the 980 can also lay claim to being the first Oculus Rift-qualified GPU. If you want to have VR on the road, the 980 is ready and willing.Nvidia has optimised the mobile GTX 980 for laptop usage. For one, the 980 will run at full whack only when plugged into a power supply; Nvidia’s power-saving utility throttles performance when it’s unplugged. Of course, it’s still better to think of these laptops more as portable, compact desktop PCs than go-anywhere gaming rigs: as only 17in gaming laptops will be able to accomodate the power and cooling requirements of the new GPU, and will require a huge power pack, these aren’t the kind of device you’ll want to carry around every day.

Don’t worry about a serious price-hike either as Nvidia has stated many OEMs are simply replacing the existing GTX 980M’s with a GTX 980, meaning it will now replace the top-tier models, with 980M laptops dropping in price.Why did Nvidia cram a GTX 980 into a notebook? While it certainly feels like more of a case of “can we do it?”, rather than “should we do it?”, Nvidia’s aim was to open the door to better laptops for everyone – not just gaming enthusiasts.In order to allow for an overclocked GPU, Nvidia had to convince OEMs to open up temperature controls to users through bespoke apps that can alter fan speed to compensate for higher overclocks. Naturally this is something OEMs have been very hesitant of, due to the risks it presents around laptop reliability. By communicating with OEMs and convincing them to open up a bit, Nvidia has suddenly opened the floodgates for innovation within laptops, creating parity between desktop and laptop experiences and power.

As Nvidia’s senior product manager Brian Choi summed up to Alphr during the 980’s unveiling, “no-one thought you could break the three-minute mile [sic]. But, as soon as you broke the three-minute mile [sic], everybody was just piling in. No one thought you could build thin a gaming-class notebook until Razer did that. After Razer did it everyone started realising ‘oh you just move that part’, they just had to try harder.Microsoft has tried to do it over a series of years. Apple has recently got in on the act, but it’s taken Google to perfect the detachable hybrid design. The Pixel C, an Android tablet with a detachable keyboard, has just trumped the Surface Pro 4 and iPad Pro. It’s the best detachable hybrid design yet, and it hasn’t just overtaken the competition – it’s blasted past it in a cloud of dust and smoke.

What makes it so good? After all, on paper, there’s little more to the Pixel C than simply a nicely designed Android tablet that comes with an optional Bluetooth keyboard. Many other manufacturers have attempted this combination, including, most recently, Sony with its Xperia Z4 Tablet, and with largely underwhelming results.And, with the release of Android Nougat, the Pixel C finally has the software which it deserves, and which lifts is from "nice" to being a genuine productivity contender.The devil here is in the design details, most specifically the way in which the two parts of this tablet attach to each other. Take the tablet part in one hand and the keyboard base in the other, then overlap them along the top edge of the keyboard. One unfeasibly strong magnetic “snick” later, and you suddenly have a perfectly usable, ultraportable laptop with a laptop-style hinge that can be adjusted to any angle.Unlike any other hybrid design I’ve seen, there’s no telltale wobble here or instability. No sense of compromise. Tap the screen and it barely budges. Angle it back and it doesn’t lose its centre of gravity. Nor are there any questions surrounding the “lappability” of the Pixel C. This is a hybrid design that just works: on your lap, on a desk, the kitchen table – anywhere you happen to be. It’s brilliant.The secret behind the Pixel C’s success is the narrow hinged flap that’s integrated into the top portion of the keyboard. This is the part that provides the adjustability and it’s through this hinged blade that the Bluetooth keyboard keeps its small internal battery topped up, via inductive charging. There’s more: detach the keyboard and it can be attached magnetically to the front of the tablet as a cover, or stowed behind it neatly so you can use the tablet on its own without having to find somewhere to put it.

The keyboard itself is a joy to type on. It has its layout quirks by dint of being so compact: the Enter key is a tad skinny for my liking, but it’s double height, just like a UK keyboard Enter key should be. The Tab key is tiny, and the number 1 key is, weirdly, slightly bigger than all the other number keys. The only serious compromise for typability is the apostrophe key, which ends up squeezed into a space half the size it normally is, between the semi-colon and Enter. There’s no backlight, and no space for a touchpad here, but with the screen placed so close to the top of the keyboard, it isn’t too tricky to reach up and dab or swipe the touchscreen.

Still, I’m willing to put up with the odd mistyped apostrophe when the rest of the keyboard is this good. The keys have a remarkable amount of travel to them and the spacing between them is perfect. I typed the entirety of this review on it, which just goes to show how good it is. With many devices, even full-sized laptop keyboards, I’d be itching to get back to my Cherry MX after a few minutes, but not this time. It’s truly a pleasure to type on.The other negative, as with most detachable hybrids, is that the keyboard is an optional extra, and Google is, rather predictably, charging £119 for it. However, with the tablet costing £399 for the 32GB version, the Pixel C starts to look a lot better value. Those wanting a little more storage can opt for the 64GB version of the Pixel C, which adds £80 to the price – alas, there’s no microSD slot for expanding the storage.Naturally, the first place you’ll be able to buy the Pixel C will be the Google Play store, but, with or without the keyboard, it’s cheaper than either the cheapest Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and Apple iPad Pro. If you think that comparison is inappropriate, it’s the same price as the 16GB iPad Air 2, with double the storage and the option of that stupendous keyboard.

But what about the Surface 3? Good point. That costs £419 for the 64GB model, and Microsoft is currently bundling it with the Type Cover keyboard (which usually costs £110) for £487 – a saving of £111 compared to the 64GB Pixel C and its matching keyboard.Either way, though, the Pixel C looks like good value to me. And, frankly, I’d happily pay a premium over the Microsoft Surface 3 for it. Why? Keep reading and I’ll explain.The iPad Pro is one of the most ambitious products Apple has ever released and we think it’s great. Although it might look like a supersized iPad on the outside, inside the iPad Pro are a range of extra features that set it apart from Apple’s original tablet. Larger speakers, impressive stylus connectivity and a superfast processor make the iPad Pro much more versatile than the standard iPad – but which apps should you download? We’ve scoured the App Store to find the seven apps that get the most out of the iPad Pro.
