With all the amount of purchases that happen every minute on iTunes and every other online store, it impossible not to see someone that will ask for unpurchase or refund.

You will like it if your purchase is reversed without going through any hardship or waiting for many hours.

  1. In this video, I will try to tell you and let you know how you can request a refund from Apple and get your money back (iTunes purchases, Apple ID Subscripti.
  2. Amazon Appstore and Digital Music purchases are not returnable after purchase. If you're having difficulty accessing, playing, or downloading an item after purchase, contact Contact Us. Purchases from Prime Video can be canceled within 24 hours of purchase provided you have not attempted to stream/download the video.

I also like it that way.

And that is the reason I am writing this post, simple tips on how to unpurchase an app.

There are few things you must know though. It is on Apple’s policy page that there is no refund for any purchase made on their site.

This does not mean that you cannot request a refund; you just have to provide a genuine reason for the request.

You are much likely to get a refund is if there is a technical problem that prevents the app from working on your phone.

The App Store first opened its doors in 2008. If you were among the first to use it, you have over 10 years worth of apps sitting in your account ready to download again to your iOS devices. You can check your app download history (and redownload titles) on your iPhone by following the steps below.

How to View Your App Download History

You can find information about your free and paid apps on your iPhone in one of two ways.

Use the App Store App

To find a list showing your purchased apps, go directly into the App Store app on your iOS device.

  1. From the Home screen, tap the App Store app icon.
  2. Tap the Updates tab at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Select the account icon at the top right.
  4. Tap All Purchased.
  5. Choose My Purchased.
  6. Begin typing to find the app you’d like to see in the Search box. By default, you’ll search under All apps. To narrow your search, you can choose Not on this iPhone.
  • All: Shows you a list of every app you bought through the app store, sorted by the newest first.
  • Not on this iPhone: Includes only the apps that aren’t installed on your app currently.

Once you find an app to download, tap on the iCloud icon to begin the process.

Using 3D Touch

If you own an iPhone with 3D Touch, you can press firmly on the App Store icon on your iPhone Homepage.

  1. From there, tap the Purchased tab.
  2. You’ll see the All Purchases page discussed above.

Family Purchases

If you’re part of a family in iCloud, you can also access apps purchased from other family members. On the All Purchased page, tap on the person under Family Purchases. Find and download the app(s) as noted above.

Important Points

Not all apps can be downloaded again to your iOS device. These take various forms:

  • Beginning with iOS 11, apps needed to support 64-bit architecture. If an app doesn’t, you can’t redownload it.
  • Apps that Apple pulled from the market aren’t shown on your App Store history and can’t be downloaded again.
  • Developer-pulled apps will still show up in your download history. However, you can’t download the app to your device.
  • If you have an outstanding balance, but there is something wrong with your default payment option in the App Store, you can’t download or update any app until the issue is resolved. Once it is, you can download apps again immediately.
