iTunes Allowances Program to bid adieu as of May 25

Apple says you can no longer set up iTunes Allowances — which let parents set up monthly credit for their kids to spend on App Store and iTunes Store purchases — and the iTunes Allowances will vanish into the void on May 25.

After that date, any unused allowance credit will remain in the recipient’s account until it's used. Apple says that, to manage iTunes purchases made by your family, use Family Sharing. To send gifts to family and friends, use iTunes Gifts.
