Now, it’s agreed to change the wording on app downloads, too.
Even if free apps are actually free—that’s to say, there are no hidden in-app purchases lurking within—you’ll now be offered the opportunity to ‘Get’ the app rather than being told its ‘Free.’
Are get apps free?
Why App Store apps are now labeled ‘Get’ instead of ‘Free’ As part of recent changes, Apple has stripped pricing labels from all free apps in its app listings, even if they don’t contain in-app purchases. If you navigate to a specific app’s page, you’ll then be presented with the new ‘Get’ button.
What does it mean by in app purchases?
In-app purchasing refers to the buying of goods and services from inside an application on a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. In-app purchases allow developers to provide their application for free. This allows the developer to profit despite giving the basic app itself away for free.
How do I know if I am paying for an app?
To check up on your Apple subscriptions, head to the Settings app on your iOS device, then tap your name, then iTunes & App Store. Hit the Apple ID link at the top, then View Apple ID, then Subscriptions.
How do you know if an app is free on iPhone?
On the Apple App Store, if the app is free you would see a “Get” button there which you can click and install the app, but if you see a price on the button, it means that the app is paid. Apart from it, if the app has any in-app purchases, it would be displayed next to the “Get” or price button on the app.
