Can I delete my purchase history on iPhone?

Answered by Tom Adger

You can delete your purchase history on your iPhone. To do this, you need to open the “Purchased” section in the App Store. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Locate and open the App Store on your iPhone.
2. Tap on your profile picture or initials at the top right corner of the screen.
3. From the dropdown menu, select “Purchased”. This will show you a list of all the apps you have purchased or downloaded on your iPhone.
4. By default, the “All” tab will be selected, which shows all your purchased apps. You can switch to the “Not on this iPhone” tab if you only want to see the apps that are not currently installed on your device.
5. In the list of apps, locate the one you want to hide from your purchase history.
6. Swipe your finger from right to left on the app name. This will reveal a “Hide” button.
7. Tap on the “Hide” button to remove the app’s history from your iPhone. The app will no longer appear in your purchased apps list.

By hiding the app, it will not be visible in your purchased apps history, but please note that it will still be available for download from the App Store if you decide to reinstall it in the future.

Hiding the app can be useful if you want to keep your purchase history more organized or if you simply don’t want certain apps to be visible to others who may access your iPhone.

I have personally used this feature to hide apps that I no longer use or apps that I prefer to keep private. It’s a handy feature that allows you to declutter your purchased apps list and maintain a cleaner app library.

Deleting your purchase history on your iPhone is a straightforward process that can be done directly from the App Store. Just follow the steps mentioned above, and you’ll be able to hide apps from your purchase history in no time.
