    So I setup family sharing with myself as the organizer. I invited several family members and they're using their own Apple ID on the iTunes section of the iDevice's settings.

    When my wife went to Appstore => Updates => Purchased Apps => my name, no apps are showing. I'm pretty sure I haven't hidden anything and even if I did, I'm pretty sure I didn't hide ALL the apps I've bought under my name.

    In saying that, I setup Family-sharing on my Macbook since it's easier to type but I don't think that matters?

    Any ideas on how to fix it? thanks

    edit: just logged in again to iCloud using my Apple ID and I have enabled "Share my purchases".

    I have same issue today. None of us can see each other's purchases and here is five accounts in my family sharing. Was working fine previously.

    I can see music and video purchases in iTunes Store app but nothing in App Store app.

    Now all is working again.

    Cellular data for automatic downloads needs to be on to see the other members' purchases if not on wifi.
