Paid iOS applications remain usable after user demands money back




It has recently become possible for up to 14 days after purchase of an iOS app to get back the money paid. Nevertheless, it appears that the returned application just stays on the iOS device and also from iTunes can be reloaded.

The ability to 14 days after purchase of asking iOS app in the App Store money back shortly before the turn of the year Apple introduced . Shortly after users reported that after all refund the conscious application just continues to function: Apple does not remove the software from the iOS device on which it is installed. It would also be possible to other iTunes purchased content such as music, videos and books, retain after a refund of the money paid.

According to 9 To 5 Mac continues the installation, the .ipa, also stored in the iTunes library. As a result, it is possible, if desired, to reload the application. All in all, it is possible to use paid applications to remain free by 14 days to reclaim the money paid. The application is only removed from the purchase history; However, that leads there that the user no longer receive updates for the returned app.

Apple has probably chosen a return period of 14 days because this is mandatory because of European legislation. However, the company is technically possible to remove applications from an iOS device, but apparently chooses to not to make use of it. Because Apple has not yet responded, it is unclear why this is.
