How do I approve app purchase requests for iOS Family Sharing?

My daughter has made a request to purchase an app and I see the notification on my iPhone, but tapping the notification doesn't seem to launch an approval screen and I can't figure out how to approve it. What are steps to locate and approve the requests using an iPhone?

This was a pain in the ass bug in the betas that I haven't seen in quite some time. Clear the notification and have her re-request the purchase, see if it works then.

Ok - on re-request it worked. I was able to click on the notice in the pull-down screen and an approval dialog appeared.

Thank you! Repped!

Glad it helped! I'll be really upset if this is a regression in the software and not just a one-off fluke!
