How To Delete Hidden Purchases On iPhone

Share This:

IPhone is one of the most popular mobile devices on the market today, and with it comes a wide range of features and capabilities. However, as with any device, there are times when you may want to delete hidden purchases on your iPhone. Whether you’re trying to free up space or just want to clean up your purchase history, deleting hidden purchases on your iPhone is easy. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you do just that.

First off, you need to open the App Store app on your iPhone. Tap the account button or your photo or initials at the top of the screen, then select Purchases from the dropdown menu. If you use Family Sharing, select My Purchases instead.

Now scroll through your list of purchased apps until you find the one that you want to delete. Swipe left on it and tap Hide; this will prevent it from appearing in your list of purchases without deleting it permanently. Once you’ve done this for all apps that you want to hide, tap Done at the top right corner of the screen.

Keep in mind that if you ever decide that you want to download any of these hidden apps again in the future, they will still be available in your purchase history under Account > Purchased > Hidden Purchases (or Family Sharing > My Purchases > Hidden Purchases). Simply tap Unhide next to each hidden app and they will reappear in your main purchase list once again.

If deciding which apps should be hidden isn’t enough for you and instead you would like to delete them completely from both your device and purchase history then this can also be done relatively easily too:

Simply open up Settings on your iPhone and go into General > iPhone Storage (or Storage & iCloud Usage). Scroll down until you find the app (or apps) that you would like to delete completely; then simply tap Delete App followed by Delete App again when prompted for confirmation. This will delete both the app itself as well as any trace of its existence from both your device and purchase history.

Hopefully, this guide has helped show how easy it can be to delete hidden purchases on an iPhone – whether it’s simply hiding them away so they don’t take up space or deleting them completely so they won’t even appear in past transactions!
