Apple today released the iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6 update for all the eligible iPhone and iPad models bringing a couple of new features to iPhone and iPad.
Apple Card Family
The new Apple Card Family feature was announced during Apple’s Spring Unloaded event. This enabled families to create a sharing group for an Apple Card, allowing two people to share a single Apple card. These two people become co-owners of the card, track purchases, manage spending, and build credit together.
Parents can also add their children to the sharing group and share their spending limit with them for purchases. Plus, parents can also limit their spending limits and put parental control to help their children learn finances.
A family sharing group can consists of not more than five members, and the co-owner must be 18 years or older. This feature is exclusively available in the US.
