This thread is for all the occasions where we search for a previously used setting that we can’t find any more. It’s not so much for sharing answers but more a reflection on how Apple’s much vaunted commitment to usability can be deflected by something more important like marketing or politics.
I like to keep iOS in-app purchases disabled because I have at least one app that I don’t trust not to execute purchases. Occasionally I do need to enable an in-app purchase and then I have a hard time finding the option again.
Settings / iTunes & App Store? No.
Search settings for “in-app” ? No relevant results. Also no relevant results searching for “purchase”
It’s supposed to be obvious that this is now in Settings / Screen Time / Content & Privacy Restrictions / enter a pin / iTunes & App Store Purchases where the third option is In-app Purchases.
Calling this category “Screen Time” is misleading as there’s a lot more in there besides Screen Time. And it’s disappointing that the capability to search settings doesn’t find all the options. If it’s behind a pin, then display the search result and put the pin entry after the user chooses the result.
