How to View Purchase History on iOS Devices?

It is possible to view purchase history by tapping the link View purchase history on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Alternatively, you can follow these steps:

  1. Access Settings → [username] → iTunes & App Store.
  2. Tap Apple ID → tap View Apple ID. Sign in with your Apple ID and password, if requested.
  3. In case you’re using a Family subscription, you can see your personal purchase history, but not what the other family members have bought. To access other family members’ purchase history, authenticate with their Apple ID.
  4. Locate Purchase History and tap it.

All purchases are split into groups by the date of charge according to chosen payment method. It is possible to access the Pending section located in the upper part of the screen. By default, you can view the purchase history for the last 90 days. To alter the displayed range, tap Last 90 Days, then specify the needed period.

To view the invoice details, tap on the → arrow located on the right to the total billed charge. To email a receipt, you can tap Resend at the bottom of the invoice details screen.

To access the item details (date of purchase/download, the name of the device used to purchase it), tap on the item inside an invoice. In case the billed item is duplicated in your purchase history by accident, tap Report a Problem.
