How to Get Refund for iTunes or App Store Purchases on iPhone, Mac, or Windows PC

Mistakenly purchased any app? Follow these straightforward steps to request app refund from iTunes using iPhone, or Web on Mac or Windows PC.

Apple makes sure you don’t end up buying an app “accidentally” by asking you to enter the password when you purchase an item. But should you buy an app only to find out that this wasn’t the one you were expecting to buy, you can file a refund claim?

Apple reviews the refund claim before granting or declining the request. A lot of people do not know how to request a refund for the purchase. You can extend this to music/videos too.
