Whether you want to free up space on your iPhone, or you want to make sure you get the best deal possible when purchasing apps, deleting purchase history is a great way to go. You can do this in a number of different ways, and some are actually pretty fun. Here are some of the easiest methods for deleting your purchase history.
The App Store may be your go-to destination for entertainment, but it can also be a minefield of apps. This means you have to keep an eye out for any apps that are not worth your hard earned cash. For instance, apps that save useless incomplete files and other useless garbage can be a big waste of space. To get rid of these apps, you have to either delete them or find a way to hide them from the iPhone’s memory.
In general, there are two main options when it comes to deleting your purchase history. One option is to do so via your iCloud account. If you have an iCloud account, you can delete your purchase history by clicking on your name at the top of the screen and selecting ‘Manage Storage’. Once you’ve done this, you’ll see a list of apps that are stored on your device. Choose the one you’d like to remove and tap the red ‘Delete’ button to confirm.
Alternatively, you can use iTunes. While deleting your purchase history is easy enough, you will need to log in to your iTunes account first. This can be done through the Settings app. Afterwards, you’ll have to scroll down to the ‘purchased’ section. Select ‘Purchased’ and you’ll have a list of the types of purchases you’ve made. When you’ve selected an item, you’ll be prompted to swipe left to delete the item. After that, you’ll need to enter a password to verify your purchase.
Another option for deleting your purchase history is to physically erase the app. To do this, you’ll need to login to your Apple ID through the Settings app. It’s also worth noting that your Apple ID is required for this method, so be sure to have it memorized. Also, if you’re using a family membership, be sure to use the appropriate credentials. Luckily, you’ll be able to access your account by going to the Account Information section of the settings menu.
Finally, you can do what some people do: set up a family sharing account to share subscriptions and locations. However, this method will only work if you have at least one member of the family with an iPhone.
If you’re looking for a really good reason to remove your purchase history from your iPhone, consider this: fraudsters can buy your personal data online, and then sell it to an unrelated third party. This is especially true if your account is linked to an online bank or credit card. So, to protect your phone, your privacy, and your money, you should take the time to remove your purchase history.
