Controlling personal finances is a very important part of our lives, especially in the digital world, because we spend a relatively large amount of money on virtual purchases that are harder to track. However, you still have to do it to control your spending and understand what you are spending your money on.
You can spend money in the App Store, iTunes Store or Apple store. And in this article I will tell you how to control your spending in all of these destinations.

The easiest way is to check your purchases with a web browser. To do this you need to do the following:
- Open reportaproblem.apple.com

Originally this service was designed so that you could let Apple know about a problem, such as when you were charged for something you didn’t buy. However, you can also use it to simply check your Apple purchase history.

- Go to ‘Settings’
- Tap on your Apple account
