Talking of things just not working…
I purchased an app for my kids, using my iTunes account, as admin of my family group.
One kid - the game auto downloaded direct to his iPad. (No idea why that happens…)
The other - when we try to download the app, it then says “This app is no longer shared with you. To use it, you must buy it from the App Store”.
Going in to buy it does not work, as it says - it’s already been purchased by a family member.
I’ve tried offloading, and deleting it… I’ve restarted the iPad, and my iPhone. I’ve turned off all Screen Time controls (in case it was deemed inappropriate for kids).
I am at a loss… and have an 8yo that is realllllllly not coping with this situation.
There’s numerous websites with suggestions on how to remedy, mostly using the above steps, and nothing works.
Apple, I hate you.
