iTunes Store and App Store: Block your iOS against in-app purchases.

iTunes & App Store Passwords Preferences in iOS on iPhone/ iPad.

Without apps, you can’t get the best out of your iPhone or iPad. Personally, I never want to miss out on any chance of downloading any exciting apps like Pokemon Go, Prisma and more.

Fortunately, the latest iOS, it allow you to manage your iTunes and App Store passwords with ease. If you don’t want to enter passwords for the apps which are free, you have the option to avoid it. Moreover, you can set it up to require entering passwords after 15 minutes of downloading any apps available at a certain price. Let’s discover!
