How to Re-Install Apps Purchased From The Apple App Store

This page contains a brief summary of steps for re-installing apps purchased from the App Store. For more details, please reference the official guide from Apple Support:

You can reinstall apps at anytime from the Apple Store. There is no additional charge to reinstall apps you have already purchased.

  • Launch the App Store app
  • Log into the Store app using the same account you previously used to purchase the app (this step is important)
  • Select your Apple ID photo icon
  • Choose "Purchased"
  • Your account will now show a list of your purchased apps
  • Locate the app you wish to install and choose download
Reinstall apps that contain in-app purchase
After a reinstall, please go to the in-app purchase section in the app and choose "Restore". This will restore all your existing purchases. You will not be charged again as long as you are logged into the App Store using the same Apple ID as used to make the original purchase.
