    Minecraft on iPad - my kids have purchased and paid for new worlds in the app, but they...


    I saw a message that the parental controls are blocking 3rd party apps (I am guessing that means worlds in this scenario) from allowing my kids to use. I went to microsoft.com to try to allow 3rd party apps, but cannot locate how to change the content setting.

    They only play this on their ipads. Any help what website I should be using to adjust these controls is appreciated.

    Thank you.

    :)

    Minecraft on Nintendo switch

    ...we have now started fresh with a new world in minecraft on the ipad. However, i still cannot access this new world on the nintendo switch minecraft
    Minecraft doesn't store the worlds "in the cloud" so that multiple devices can access one world.

    If you have a world stored on your iPad, the Switch will NOT automatically have the world, even if you use the same Microsoft Account.

    Your son can either "visit" the world on the iPad with the Switch, while the iPad is running Minecraft at that time through Multiplayer.

    If you really want to have the world shared across both devices, your only option is to "rent" a realm that you have to pay for in monthly subscription fees.

    Or if your son is okay with transferring the world from one device (e.g. iPad to the Switch and only play on the Switch from then on), you could use a free trial for Realms to transfer the world over.

    To do that, your son activates a Realm subscription with a free trial on iOS, and uploads the desired world to the Realm service.

    Then he connects the Switch to the same Realm, and downloads the world to his Switch.

    Then you cancel the Realm subscription via

    I'm really glad that this was posted. Thanks for the information because my wife and I are separated, and my kids borrow my games all the time, and I at times will borrow theirs. Games like minecraft, I would purchase twice. I enjoy building worlds with
    my kids. This is great news!

    Lost purchases from Minecraft Market

    Hello,

    My kids also experienced the same thing today where they made a purchase through the xbox, Minecraft marketplace using Minecoins that I purchased for them the other day. Not only did the new pruchase not appear (and look like it was still available
    for purchase despite a reduction in Minecoins) all of the previous purchases are missing from the account as well. With everything else going on in the world Minecraft was a bit of my saving grace so that my kids could get through the day! Please Microsoft
    get this fixed ASAP!

    Sincerely,

    Begging on my knees for help entertaining these kids!

    Minecraft application is NOT syncing to my Microsoft account

    Did you ever get this resolved? I have the same issue: Purchase made on iOS device. Log into Microsoft account (on ipad via minecraft app) and those purchases are not visible. Log out of account on iPad and purchase is visible again.

    The purchases are stored on the device (my daugher's iOS) and I'm trying to get them to transfer to her microsoft account so we don't lose the content/purchases.
