From my understanding, with the iUP program, to start the process, you must use a credit card (no debit card, so likely no gift card) for the first purchase, then after that you can log into citizen one's account and change the payment to ACH withdrawl from your bank account.

I don’t think you can for the upgrade program, but pre-ordering with gift cards for payment methods for actual Apple products, absolutely you can. (That’s how I paid for my last Apple Watch I ordered, was using gift cards.)

Fun fact:

You can use up to {eight} gift cards when making a purchase with Apple.com on Apple products.

I have used Apple Store gift cards to pay for phones when buying outright... not sure if there's a mechanism for using gift card to pay installments...
