Question: How do I see which Apps are Installed on iPhone?

With the change to remove Apps from iTunes on my PC, how do I use the iPhone's own App Store to view which Apps I've installed?


I don't have all my Apps running on my phone all the time. E.g. I only load travel related Apps (airlines, etc) when I'm on holiday/vacation.


I can't see how I can choose to install or remove an App from the new App Store.

iPhone 7, iOS 11.0.3

Answer:
Answer:

As for checking what's installed / re-installing, though app store.


In App store, click on the user icon top right of screen.


Select "Purchased", then ensure that "All" is selected.


Scroll down that list - Apps will either have an "Open" button (if they are installed), or a cloud download icon if they are int installed but eligible to be installed on that device.


You can't uninstall apps through app store. You have to do that from the device's home pages. (Hold any icon until they all 'jiggle', and click the 'X' label on the icons of the apps that you wish to uninstall.

Very useful reply. I can see the installed status here, and also choose which Apps to update (I don't update all, because many Apps I no longer use, so don't need to waste bandwidth on downloading updates).


I'm annoyed at Apple though. Previously I could reinstalled Apps from my computer very quickly. Now it seems I have to download them all over again from the 'cloud' which will needlessly take up wifi bandwidth. A poor solution design, methinks.
