However, lately, it has allowed up to 6 people to share products as well as purchases from iTunes, iBooks, App Store, etc. Additionally, it is more convenient for parents to better manage their children’s purchases as they are given the rights to take control and manage items their kids are interested in. Only by changing the settings then you can designate a person in the group that can make purchasing decisions for youngsters.
