For a couple of years ago, Electronic Arts remove a bunch of older iOS apps from the App Store. Including Bejeweled 2, Dead Space and Need for Speed Shift disappeared. For some who had bought them in the past led to problems.
It turned out that it was no longer possible to download these games from the Purchased tab in the App Store, which used to be a method you could use to download an app you owned, but which for some reason were no longer in the store (as was the case for those who had acquired Flappy Bird before it was removed).
in such a situation, it is good to know that Apple has a process to request a repurchase of your purchased apps. You can request a refund for several reasons in addition to the app is no longer available for download – it can be for example that it works as advertised, it crashes all the time, or that you did not authorize the purchase (for a child, for example, has experienced make a purchase).
Rules for removed apps
There and then, Apple seems to have worked in silence and changed the apps that are no longer sold in the shop handled. Previously the purchased apps remain in the tab Bought whether the app remains on the App Store or not. Since autumn 2015, they will disappear as soon as the sale of the application has been completed.
If the developer for some reason can not or want to make their old app available again and you feel cheated out of the candy, you can request a refund by Apple.
Applications that do not work as promised
another situation where you may want to get your money back is when you buy an app, and it does not live up to expectations. Maybe crashing on cliffs in one, or it does not, it it as described is supposed to do. Or you happened to download a disguised copy of a well-known app (which is teeming on the App Store).
Whatever the cause of your dissatisfaction, you can ask Apple for a buyback. If you find deficiencies within 14 days from the time of purchase and use a shop in the EU, you no longer give a reason, but simply get your money back automatically.
We do not recommend that you use this opportunity to test a bunch of apps that it was the demo versions, because it is possible that Apple sees the behavior as use of the generous rules. But the genuine flaws, just honk and go.
