What is this £1.58 charge for?

An iTunes pre-authorisation is a check that Apple makes on a debit card to ensure that the card is working, valid and not reported lost or stolen.

Usually they only do one transaction for £1.58 to check the card, however they may do several if you make a lot of purchases.

How long until I get refunded?

It takes around a week for the £1.58 to disappear, if it’s been longer please email us contact us through the in-app chat.
