Apple is making it harder to accidentally pay for an app subscription on iOS. Now, the firm has added an extra modal dialogue to ensure users know exactly what they’re signing up for.
The new modal will let you know that a service simply isn’t a one-off, and that you’ll need to cancel it from the Settings app if you’re not fully onboard with recurring payments.
Whoa! Apple added an additional confirmation step for subscriptions. This new alert comes after you confirm with Touch ID/Face ID. I hope they address this in a more elegant way in iOS 13, but I’m thrilled Apple took a definitive step to curb scam subscriptions. ?? @pschiller pic.twitter.com/oktaEVdx0o
