How to get a refund using your iPhone or iPad

Apple hasn’t built any links to problem reporting into the iTunes Store or App Store apps, so if you’re stuck using the web on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad as well. If it’s more convenient, you can go directly to problem reporting via your email receipt.

  1. Launch Mail from your Home screen.
  2. Search for “Your receipt from Apple” if it’s not immediately visible.
  3. Tap on the receipt for the purchase your want refunded. (Unless you remember the date, there’s no way to tell which receipt is which unless you tap it to open it, so you might end up tapping a lot…)
  4. Tap the purchase you want to report.

From this point on you’re in Safari and performing the same steps as described in the web browser section, above.
