How to contact an app developer

Find contact information for app developers—including developers of Apple Arcade games—using your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or Apple TV.

You might want to contact the developer or publisher of an app for help if you experience one of these issues:

  • All apps on your iPhone open and function as expected, except for one.
  • You previously bought a non-consumable in-app purchase and aren't able to restore your purchases in the app.

For iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS apps

  1. Open the App Store on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Make sure that you're signed in with the Apple ID that you purchased or downloaded the app with. 
  2. Search for the app, then tap it. Or to find the app in your purchases, tap Today, then tap the My Account button  or your photo at the top of the screen. Tap Purchased, then find the app. You might need to tap "Not on this [device]" to see all of your apps.
  3. Swipe up to find the Ratings & Reviews section, then tap App Support. If you don't see App Support, make sure that you're signed in with the correct Apple ID.
