Check the status of a refund for apps or content that you bought from Apple

Allow 24 to 48 hours to receive an update from Apple. If approved, the time it takes for the money to appear on your account or statement depends on the payment method. You may lose access to refunded items.

Please note, if you already initiated your refund request, contacting Apple by phone or chat won't help speed up your request, or the processing of your funds. Monitor the status of your request on, or with your financial institution.

How to check the status of your refund request

  1. Go to and sign in with your Apple ID.

  2. Choose Check Status of Claims. If you don't see Check Status of Claims, you don't have any pending refund requests. Learn how to request a refund.

  3. To see the status, tap or click Pending.

When will I get the money back?

If your refund is approved, the funds are applied to the same payment method that you used to buy the item. Here's how long it takes for a refund to appear on your account or statement:

Store credit—It might take up to 48 hours to see the refund in your Apple Account balance.

Mobile phone billing—It might take up to 60 days for the statement to show the refund. Processing time might be affected by your carrier. You can contact your carrier for an update.

Credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, Apple Cash, and all other payment methods—It might take up to 30 days for the statement to show the refund. If you don't see the refund after 30 days, contact your financial institution.
