How to Turn Off In-App Purchases on iPhone 15 Pro Max, 14 in iOS 17

You can disable In-App purchases on iPhone, iPad or on any iPhone from the Settings app, so no one can go with in-app purchases.

Are you worried about random In-App Purchases on your iPhone or Other compatible iOS devices? I was very concerned because when my cousin took the iPhone to play games, he ends up purchasing new games and at the end, I have to pay a big bill. But then after searching and asking about how do I turn off In-App Purchases on iPhone, actually got away. No need to download any third-party application to prevent In-App Purchases on iPhone as Apple provides a default option to disable it.

This feature comes under parental control, but being the parent, we never know that this type of function exists in our iPhone. And you will be surprised to hear that Apple is giving the ability to turn on In-App Purchases on iPhone. But it is highlighted with iOS; doesn’t matter. From now onwards you can prevent In-App Purchases on iPhone and save money.

Basically, this is powerful control while you set up parental control for your kids as Kid’s Screen Time as a Parental Control.
