The all new look of App Store has impressed me right from the word go. Exploring top apps and games have become a bit easier now. For a change, “Purchased” section is no longer located in Updates tab. To view all of your purchased apps in iOS 11, you need to head into your iCloud profile that's visible within the App Store itself.
Once you have accessed all of your past purchases, you can easily re-download them as before. You will also check out all the purchased apps which are not available on your device. Besides, the process to re-download apps from other family members has remained the same.
