All of the purchases that you are going to see on this screen are the ones that you have made through the App Store and iTunes Store. If you bought something from Amazon, or through an app that doesn’t use Apple’s in-app purchasing, then you won’t see it here.

Free apps that you download are considered purchases. That’s why you are probably going to see a handful of apps in your purchase history that have a price of 0.00.

If you use multiple Apple IDs on your iPhone then you aren’t going to see purchases that you made using the other Apple ID. You will need to sign out of the current Apple ID and sign in with the other one to view those purchases.

At the top of the purchase history screen there is a “Date Range” option where you can choose to view older purchases.

Once a purchase is finalized in your purchase history you can tap on the “Total Billed” line and see an invoice for that purchase.

There is also a “Hidden Purchases” option on this screen where you can see any of the purchases made with your Apple ID that you chose to hide, such as if you bought something as a gift for someone.
