A $5 allowance handed out as a physical bill is so two decades ago. Everything is done digitally these days, particularly since your child probably spends most of his or her cash on favorite songs, movies and TV shows via iTunes. Apple’s digital allowance program simplifies the process of kids earning money for doing chores. Parents can automatically transfer funds into a child’s iTunes account every month. That way, kids can purchase the content they want, and if you have access to your child’s iTunes account you can track exactly what they’re buying.
We’ll take you step-by-step through how to set up an iTunes Allowance account. Before you get started, make sure you have the latest version of iTunes and log in to your iTunes Store account.
