iOS 7.1.1 Update Marks ‘In-App Purchases’ Against App Name In Listing In App Store
With the latest iOS 7.1.1 update, users can know if am App has an in-App purchase option even before getting into the details of the App. In the App Store all the listing pages that have App tiles like ‘Top Charts’, ‘Business’ etc., besides having the App name and price, now also very clearly state ‘In-App Purchases’ under the price box, if the App has an In-App purchase option.
In App Purchase has been an issue for Apple for some time around and Apple is constantly trying to work around a solution for it to avoid any troubles happening to Apple iOS users. Apple also settled for class-action lawsuit in 2013 and signed a consent decree with the Federal Trade Commission about the issue in January. With the last iOS 7.1.1 update, user opting for an In-App purchase gets a warning message post inputting the password saying, “you can now make additional purchases in an app for the next 15 minutes without re-entering your password”. This can be totally eliminated too by changing the settings in the Restrictions area of the Settings menu. Around a month back Apple also started sending out mails to its few iTunes users stating that they can request for refund for In-App purchase made by minors.
