Ask Siri. Say something like:

  • “Find apps by Apple”

  • “Purchase app name

  • “Redeem an iTunes Store gift card”

If you know what you’re looking for, tap Search. Or tap Categories to browse by type of app.

Find apps from the Home screen. On iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, press App Store, then choose a quick action. 

Access family members’ apps. With Family Sharing turned on, you can view and download apps purchased by other family members. Tap Purchased, tap your name or My Purchases, then select a family member from the menu. 

Tell a friend about an app. Find the app, tap the share button, then choose an option.

Use Wish List. To track an app you might want to purchase later, tap the share button on the app page, then tap Add to Wish List.

Search apps by category. Tap Explore, scroll to Categories, then tap a category to focus on the apps you want, for example, Education, Medical, or Sports.

What apps are being used nearby? Tap Explore to find out the most popular apps others around you are using (Location Services must be on in Settings > Privacy > Location Services). Try this at a museum, sporting event, or when you’re traveling.

Delete an app. Touch and hold the app icon on the Home screen until the icons jiggle, then tap the delete button. You can’t delete built-in apps. When you finish, press the Home button. Deleting an app also deletes its data. You can download apps you purchased from the App Store again, free of charge, subject to their availability.
