How to Hide App from Purchases?

  • On Mac:
    1. Open iTunes.
    2. Click Sign In, and then enter your Apple ID and password.
    3. Click your name and select Purchased from the menu. If you use Family Sharing, click Family Purchases.
    4. At the top-middle of the screen, click All. All of your purchased items appear.
    5. Scroll to find the item that you want to hide. Hold the cursor over the item and an X appears in the upper-left corner. Click the X, and the item hides*.
    * If you don't see the X sign, move the cursor to the top-left of the icon. When the cursor turns into a hand to indicate there is a link, click here [the top-left corner area] to open the dialog window.
  • On iPad:
    1. Open the App Store app.
    2. Tap the Updates icon at the bottom of the screen.
    3. Tap Purchased at the top of the list to view all your purchased apps.
    4. Find an app you want to hide in the list.
    5. Touch and swipe the app to the left.
    6. Tap the red Hide button that appears.
    Note! Hiding an app won’t delete the record of your purchase if you purchased the app.
