Apple begins testing warning to indicate if apps are compatible with Family Sharing

One of the new features of iOS 8 is the feature Family Sharing (Family Sharing), which we have already explained how to work here in MacMagazine.

Family Sharing

One of the benefits of Family Sharing is the possibility that only one member of the family can buy an app and it will be used by everyone. For this, however, developers must choose to make their apps compatible with the feature. As it is a choice of the developer (that is, not mandatory), this could generate some confusion after all, how will we know if an app / game or not compatible with Family Sharing?

With that in mind, Apple is adding a new warning to app information to indicate whether they are or are not compatible (image above), as reported by iFun (Google translator).

Everything is still in the testing phase, but it is very likely that this new indication will appear in all applications (be it in iTunes view, in the native App Store application of iGadgets or iTunes Preview on the web) very soon.
