The feature, which was announced by WWDC allows a family to share a single list of purchased music, movies, and iOS apps, all charged to a single credit card. It also includes parental controls so that purchases require permission from the card holder.

The labels in question have only appeared on a few apps in a few markets, but appear to show up on both iTunes and web listings. The notice will likely be removed in the near future as Apple confirm that everything is in working order.

Apple is planning to release iOS 8 expected to launch alongside a larger side a larger iPhone in September. Apple will be holding a media event to announce the next generation device on September.
