Answer:
Answer:

My understanding is that iTunes & App Store purchases are forever tied to your Apple ID and cannot be deleted from your account. See:


Hide apps for your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac - Apple Support


You can delete the song or app on your device (see one of the links in the above article) but it will still be in your account incase you ever want to download it again (assuming I is still available in the store).

A number of users, myself included, were experiencing this issue yesterday, where hidden purchases suddenly became visible again and would not stay deleted if you tried to hide them again. For me and many others affected it was resolved by last night. At a guess they've tried to roll out some change in the iTunes Store which is either having to be rolled back, or patched further. Try again in a few hours. Once I could hide things again I had to hide around 300 past purchases that I don't want shown because I've tweaked the metadata in some way and I want my version, not the store's.


Use Feedback - iTunes - Apple or Contact Apple Support if the issue persists.
