Is there anyway to delete a app in purchased list ?
I dont think so. Why would you want to do this?
Ok thanks because I have so many apps I tried it is difficult to find the apps I want to redownload after redoing my iPhone. It wouldn't matter if there was a search feature though.
I think you can on your iTunes account.
Thanks can this be done online or must I install iTunes ?
I have been told that calling apple support and asking them to delete the apps is the only way. I have not done this but I have hidden apps that I have purchased. I have downloaded and tried a lot of free apps and decided to not use them so I just hide them.
Ok thank you.
Does apple have live chat support ?
How\where can i do this ? i would like to clean (or at least hide) my purchased list from all the 'trial and error' apps i've downloaded that i dont use anymore.
You can hide them using iTiunes
It used to be possible to do it directly on the phone
but I just tried it (9.3 beta) and it didn't work. There's no swipe-to-hide option.
It does work on 9.2.1 - swipe from right to left.
I don't see this capability going away, as Family Sharing needs to provide a way for family members to hide purchases they don't want other family members to access.
Doesn't work for me on 9.2.1, can't swipe.
Works on my iPad, not iPhone. 9.2.1.
Same here. Can't swipe.
It has to be done in your account settings via iTunes. That is currently the only way. If you have Family Sharing you can do it from the iPhone.
I haven't checked in a while though so maybe things have changed.
I have family sharing and can't swipe right or left on purchased apps on my iPhone App Store.
Then you need to do it via iTunes.
Only if you having family sharing you can hide apps ?
I tried the above suggestions and i cant find how to hide the apps, i dont have 'swipe-to-hide option' on my phone, as well as i cant find it in my account settings via iTunes.
I can't find it either.
I could find only this, in https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201322
Presumably, if you are not part of a Family Share, you have to do it using iTunes.
Weird. On my iPhone the swipe left to hide is all of sudden working. It works for my purchase but not my wife's or son's.
You cannot hide purchases made with someone else's account - that's expected. They don't want one family member messing with the decisions of another family member.
Understood. That's the way it should be. It was just weird that hiding my own purchases wasn't working earlier but now it is.
iPhone 6 running 9.2.1
I got it to work but after I hide the app it shows back up when refreshing purchases.
Did you try these instructions?
