This will take you to the App Details page where you can find a list of all versions of the app you’ve downloaded and when they were installed.

Can My Downloads Be Tracked?

Yes, your downloads can be tracked by your ISP. Every time you download a file from the internet, it must pass through your ISP’s gateway servers. This means that your ISP can track the websites you visit and any files you download. Additionally, some ISPs may keep records of downloads for a certin amount of time, allowing them to track any downloads made within that timeframe.

Doing so will open the Downloads window, which shows a list of all your recent downloads. The list is sorted by date, with the most recent downloads at the top. You can also search for specific downloads or sort them by file type. To open a download from the list, just double-click it or select it and press Command+O. To delete a download from the list, select it and press Command+Delete.

Retrieving Deleted App History on an iPhone

If you’re looking to view your deleted app history on an iPhone, it’s easy to do. Firstly, open the App Store and tap on your profile photo at the top right of the screen. From there, select ‘Purchased’ from the menu options. This will bring up a list of all the apps you’ve ever downloaded, including ones that have been deleted.

To restore multiple apps at once, simply tap the cloud icon next to each app that you want to restore. Once the apps have finished downloading, they’ll apear on your home screen as normal. If you’re only looking for one particular app, then you can use the search bar at the top of this page and type in its name.

You can also view your deleted apps by going into Settings > General > iPhone Storage and scrolling down to ‘Offload Unused Apps’. This will show which apps have been offloaded (i.e. removed from your device) but are still availabe in iCloud so they can be re-downloaded easily when needed.

Finally, if none of thee methods work for you then it’s possible that your app data has been completely wiped from iCloud – in which case it won’t be recoverable unless you have a backup of some kind (such as iTunes or iCloud).


In conclusion, it is easy to view your iPhone download history. All you need to do is open the App Store, then select the profile icon in the top right corner of the screen. Selecting ‘Purchased’ from the menu will show you all of your previously downloaded apps and games. This allows you to quickly check what apps you have downloaded in the past, as well as easily re-download them if needed.
