The iPhone users have updated their card info ( update your payment method or add a new one but still many users are not able to make in app purchase on the iPhone. From apple Support community discussion, it appear that the issue is due to some issue with Apple ID and bank card information.

If you are not able to make in app purchase on your iPhone or iPad, then this could be an Apple ID issue with your bank card. Try signing out of your Apple account and then signing back in and remove and readd the card. Now  try again to make the payment and it should work.

The issue could also be due to some issue on Apple side and due to which the payments are not working on the Games/ IAP (in app purchases) . In this case you should wait for 2-3 days and after this the issue should get auto resolved. (source- reddit users    )

Also some Games with in-app purchases sometimes restrict the maximum amount of money that can be spent in a single day, so if you have already made purchase in the Game you should try waiting at least 24 hrs. and try again later.

If In app purchase is still not working on iPhone then as a workaround you can try buying from the Appstore and for permanent fix please Contact Apple Support.
