Download apps and games on your iPhone or iPad

Find apps you'll love on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

How to get apps

  1. On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, open the App Store app.
  2. Browse or search for the app that you want to download. If you find a game that says Arcade, subscribe to Apple Arcade to play the game.
  3. Tap or click the price or Get button. If you see the "Open" button instead of a price or Get button, you already bought or downloaded that app.

In the App Store, if an app has a Get button instead of a price, the app is free. You won't be charged for downloading a free app. Some free apps offer in-app purchases and subscriptions that you can buy. Subscriptions and in-app purchases give you access to more features, content, and more. Learn more about in-app purchases and subscriptions.

How to find apps that you bought

You can find your apps in your App Library

If you bought an iMessage app, you can find the app in Messages.

You can also see a list of apps that you bought and redownload them. When you redownload an app, you don't have to pay for it again.

If you can't find the App Store

If the App Store is missing on your device, you might have parental controls turned on. Adjust your iTunes & App Store Purchases settings and make sure that you choose "Allow" for the Installing Apps setting. The App Store should reappear on your device.

If you still can't find the App Store, search for it.

If you have an issue when you download apps

To buy apps from the App Store, you need an Apple ID and a payment method. If you’re only downloading free items, you still might need to keep a payment method on file.
