Since our first iPod, iPad or iPhone we have probably used the same Apple ID , since when downloading and buying applications, books, movies or music it is necessary to have an ID. And if you don’t have it yet, we recommend creating your free Apple ID account .
Since we have probably been using the same ID for a long time, sometimes we want to see the history of the applications and music that we have downloaded and purchased over the years or maybe someone is using your ID to buy Apps and music and you want to see specifically from which device the purchase was made and what date. To achieve this, the first thing you must do is log in with your Apple ID on iPhone .
