Many apps in the iPhone and iPad App Store include the in-app purchase option, which allows you to unlock or purchase additional features in the app after downloading. Here’s how to check which in-app purchases are available before downloading an app.
First, open the App Store on your iPhone or iPad. If you can̵
Once in the App Store, you will notice that if an app offers in-app purchases, you will see the words “In-app purchases” next to the price or the “Get” button.
To see which in-app purchases are available for the app, tap the app name in a list to navigate to the store page. Then scroll down to the “Information” section in the list. Find the heading ‘In-app purchases’ and tap it. (If in-app purchases are available, it will say ‘Yes’ and a downward-pointing carat next to it.)
After tapping the item, a list of all in-app purchases for the app and the price of each purchase is displayed.
Now you have a little bit more information to help you make a purchase (or download decision). If you allow your kids to use the device, it can be helpful to use Screen Time to disable in-app purchases so your kids don’t make big bills. Good luck and happy shopping!
