    Does anybody know how to access shared purchases on iOS 11? You used to be able to go with under updates and see other people in your family plans purchases, but that's no longer the case from what I am seeing. Any ideas?

    I’d like to know this as well since I can’t use the Apple store free airpano (redeem doesn’t work) so had my son do it and wanted to see if I could use his “purchase” but can’t find family anywhere in the app.

    Tap on the User thumbnail in the AppStore top right corner. I remember reading somewhere that's where it was relocated to.

    It has “Purchased” but nowhere is there a family selection. *sigh*

    Remember that this is the first beta. They will no doubt be working on the App Store.

    True, but we should also bring it up to hold them accountable and make sure that they will bring it back.

    There's no need to "hold them accountable" on the first beta.

    Ugh. Beta testing season.

    ??? All I'm saying is people should be bringing this stuff up so they take care of it by the time the final is released, you don't just stay quiet and "hope" these issues are taken care of.

    It's all in the approach. Use the tools available to report the bug? Yes. "Hold them accountable" and "make sure they bring it back"? Sort of aggressive for a Beta 1. Pretty sure that's one of those things that isn't going anywhere...

    I feel as if you're trying to imply Apple "forgot" about this functionality and wouldn't have ever thought to re-implement it if we didn't provide the feedback.

    As others have said, this beta was released with Apple being aware not everything was functional or implemented yet. This is one of those features. Additionally, things related to the App Store backend are all very fragile, and this falls under the umbrella.

    Yes, but we don't know what's on their internal list of things to be fixed or restored, so we must report everything so they're aware.
