Apple updated OS X to version 10.8.3 on Thursday. The update includes a variety of bug fixes, support for Windows 8 and Boot Camp, and the ability to redeem iTunes cards on the Mac App Store on your Mac using its built-in camera.
As noted in the comments, users could previously redeem iTunes Gift Cards through iTunes starting with iTunes 11. The ability to do so through the MAS is new.
