The App Store is the place where we get those applications that can serve us or that will serve us in our day to day. It is also an entertainment site with thousands of games to have fun. It is a place where you can be diving for a long time looking for the App that will best suit you. Taking this into account and that the final decision will always depend on the comments and the price of the App (which we can recover), there comes a time when it is possible that we have so many that space and cleanliness and order force us to remove a few. But after a while, we may want to recover some of them. That’s how it is how we can see the applications purchased in the App Store.
From time to time, it is good to do a little cleaning of our screen. Sometimes we fill it with applications that we don’t use later, either because we are testing some of them or because the operating system itself includes those functions that we used to do with an App. In that case, it is logical that we sometimes wonder where those are going to end up. applications that we no longer use but that may have cost us money at some point. There is a way to get those apps back and to view apps purchased from the App Store. Let’s see how it’s done. I already notice that it is quite simple but very practical. Because you never know when we need to recover a certain application or a game, for example.
Apple distinguishes what are recent purchases from older ones. Looking at each other is done differently.
Let’s start explaining what recent purchases look like.
To begin with, we have to log in to the specialized page that is also used to request a refund for a purchase that we do not want to have made or because when we tried the application we did not like or be convinced. Here we have a tutorial on how to make that request. Once we have logged in, we will see a list of recent purchases. Here we will be able to know the applications that we have downloaded in recent weeks and clearly see which of them we have paid for, how much and when. We can always go back to recover those applications that we already had but that for whatever reason we uninstalled at the time.
Indeed, also see subscriptions that we had and have.
However. Older purchase history may not be visible to you at a glance. We have to proceed in another way. The oldest purchases are “hiding” as we acquire new applications. If we don’t see the application we want on the previous Web page already mentioned, we can check the purchase history in “Account Settings” of the Mac, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
How to look at the oldest history from the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad
steps are enough simpleas you can see:
The first thing is to open the Settings app. Click on the name and then look where it says “Content and purchases”. Click on View account. If you ask us to log in, we do so and from there we can click on “Purchase history”. Now to see the oldest ones, click on “Last 90 days” and select a different date range.
How to look at the oldest history from your Mac or PC
- Open the Music app or iTunes.
- In the Account menu, at the top of the screen, we choose “Account Settings”.
- On the “Account Details” page, scroll down to “Purchase History.” Next to “Most recent purchase,” click “See everything”.
- We click on “Last 90 days” and select a different date range.
All right. But what if I want to see purchases made on a Mac. We already know that the store is different. Let’s see how it’s done.
View the history of purchases made in the Mac App Store
In the Mac App Store, and using a Mac, we click on your name in the lower left corner. We may have to log in. At that time, all the apps you have purchased will appear.
Now, remember that if you are using a Mac computer with an Apple Silicon chip, they also show all iPhone or iPad apps you’ve bought that work on your Mac.
So far everything is simple and it is likely that we can recover applications that we have bought a long time ago. Another thing is that we want to reinstall an old application that is now not compatible with the operating system. The question that arises is whether we can install that application again, not being compatible. The most direct answer is that you can’t and in case he leaves us, the application would not work as it should.
Before wishing you that I hope it has been useful to you, I leave you an extra.
Hide and show Apps
You may not want a certain app to show up in your purchase history. The first thing to understand is that if you hide an app, it won’t be removed from your device, a family member’s device, or other devices that you’re signed in to with your Apple ID. To hide it is as easy as finding the application that we want. Move your finger to the left and A button with the hide function will appear. We press it and that’s it.
To show, we have to highlight the following tour:
- Open App Store. and tap on the account button. That is, in our Apple ID.
- scroll down ytoca Hidden purchases.
- Find the app you want and tap Show.
- To return to the App Store, tap Account Settings, then tap OKAY.
By the way, you know that if you have deleted an App and want to recover it and it cost you money back in the day, You can download it again and without any payment.
Now yes. I hope this tutorial has been useful to you. of How to be able to see the applications purchased in the App Store.
