Changes in iOS 7.1.1 Labels for In-App Purchases Applications
It has become clearer which iOS apps and games comes with iOS 7.1.1 in-app purchase options and which don’t. Apple introduced its update to the mobile firmware for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and addresses the problem that bothered millions of families across the world.
It will become easier to see which free apps and games might ask you for extra charges after you update to iOS 7.1.1. For example, the Top Free category as well as Grossing charts offer this option now and make your choice clear. If you are not jailbroken and give your iPad or iPhone to kids for gameplay you are highly advised to install iOS 7.1.1 via OTA update or by downloading the IPSW file for your particular device version.
It took the company a while to introduce these minor changes that have been awaited for many customers. Apple was forced to pay money to users who children spent a lot of money on in-app purchases by mistake.
Once you download iOS 7.1.1 you will see that applications that appear in Top Charts and Features sections of the App Store have a small notification if they contain in-app purchases. This is the new change that follows the disclosure saying “offers in-app purchases” that appears on apps detail page for over a year now.
The warning for in-app purchase will help parents to figure out which applications are safe to download and be played by their children in terms of extra fees. The measure was asked to be implemented for a couple of years and it took the iPhone maker some time and $32 million spent in refunds to users with unauthorized purchases to finally make warnings more visible.
Think about iOS in-app purchase possibility before you install applications and games that will be enjoyed by your little minds and no one will spend your money on in-game extras.
