Here’s How You Can View A Detailed Version Of Your Purchase History On iOS
It was not previously possible to view your detailed purchase history on an iOS device. You might have tried doing it through iTunes on your Mac and PC, digging through options and whatnot. However, the method only allowed you see what you have previously purchased apps and games or any other thing from the App Store. The purpose of this method was to download a specific app once again. In addition to this, it did not allow you to see price breakdowns and more. Now, Apple is changing that, allowing users to see a detailed history of their purchases on iOS. So let's dive in to see some more details on the matter and how you can do that.
Apple Now Allows You To View A Detailed Purchase History On Your iOS Device
As we have mentioned earlier, Apple in its support document says that iOS users can now look at the detailed purchase history information right on their iOS device. It's good to see that the company has now made it convenient for iOS users to check their purchase history. The feature can be used by individuals for various purposes, whether you're just managing your finances or any other thing. If you're interested, we have prepared step by step instructions on how you can check your purchase history in detail right on your iOS device.
Step 1: The first thing that you need to do is open the Settings app on your iOS device and then tap your name.
Step 2: Once you do that, tap on iTunes & App Store. After that, tap on your Apple ID and select "View Apple ID".
Step 3: You will most likely have to authenticate your account.
Step 4: Once all of the above steps have been completed, after authenticating your account, scroll down to Purchase History and tap it.
This is it if you don't have Family Sharing activated. If you do, you will have to sign into the individual accounts in order to check what your family members have purchased.
Purchases are grouped by the date that they were charged to the payment method that you have on file. You might see a Pending section at the top of your history; these items haven't yet charged to your account. By default, only the last 90 days show up in your purchase history. To change the range, tap Last 90 Days at the top of the screen, then select the range that you want to view.
That's all to the steps, folks. Once you tap on Purchase History, a detailed version of past purchases will be right before your eyes. There's a lot more to it, like seeing details of an invoice as well as the billing date and order ID. For more details, do check the details in Apple's support document. Also, you can check your detailed purchase history on Mac as well, so do check that out as well.
