For now, if you want to gift your friends and family members the in-app purchases, you need to buy App Store gift cards for them and after they top up their account, they can make actual in-app purchases. Although you already can buy iOS applications for them if they use iPhone or iPad. But now Apple is ready to support app store in-app purchases gifting.
Spotted at MacRumors, Apple will soon let the application developers include the in-app purchases option in their applications.
This is what Apple said before app store in-app purchases change
Apps should not directly or indirectly enable gifting of in-app purchase content, features, or consumable items to others.
This is what after the change
Apps may enable gifting of items that are eligible for in-app purchase to others. Such gifts may only be refunded to the original purchaser and may not be exchanged.
There are so many applications with app store in-app purchases option but most of them are using a subscription-based model that’s why this new change option makes perfect sense. To buy the subscription for someone on Fortnite or Netflix will become more convenient. This is still unclear that what changes this option will bring in the App Store and when itself this option will available to buy in-app purchases to someone.
