Did you know that you don’t always have to keep your credit card linked to your Apple account for transactions? Instead, you can use your Apple ID balance for purchasing apps and subscribing to Apple services, such as iCloud and Apple Music. This is accomplished by making sure your Apple ID has sufficient funds attached to it.

Although a valid payment method is necessary to make purchases from Apple, you can transfer some money to your Apple ID balance and remove the linked credit card or PayPal account if necessary. This could be quite useful if you want to let your kids download paid apps or subscribe to services without giving them access to your credit card. By adding funds to their accounts, you’re also limiting how much money they can spend on the App Store.
