Question: I can't hide apps from purchase history

I follow the instructions by swiping. I tap on hide. A few seconds it reappears. What's the fix?


Also, I saw the rationale in previous posts about not being able to delete a purchase from history, once purchased you can't undelete or undo that you purchased it. I would argue that you can by throwing away the receipt. I think consumers should have a write to have things removed, especially if they are raising a family and want to use family share. The only acceptable answer is that there is a system limitation--don't preach what we should or shouldn't do with our purchase history.

None of the major providers of downloadable content, like Google, Microsoft or Sony allow users to delete their

purchase history. None will explain why.

Sharing purchased content with Family Sharing - http://support.apple.com/HT201085 --> "Content can be hidden by family members; hidden content is not available for download." --> Hide apps for your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac - https://support.apple.com/HT201322


Hide and unhide music, movies, TV shows, audiobooks, and books - https://support.apple.com/HT208167 - "Hiding an item doesn't hide the record of purchase." It will still appear in your purchase history. Has to be done on a computer through iTunes.

Hiding doesn't remove an item from purchase history, it removes it from lists of re-downloadable items when trying to re-download a purchase on your or another person's device such as when using Family Sharing.
