  • You can download apps on an iPhone for free in the App Store, which offers a wide range of free and paid apps. 
  • It’s easy to locate free apps on your iPhone by going to the Apps tab in the App Store, and then choosing the category for all the top free apps.

Apple provides an enormous marketplace to get apps for your iPhone. While many of these apps are for purchase – they may cost anywhere from 99 cents to several dollars – there are a lot of free apps as well.

Some apps are free because in-app purchases are what mainly create revenue for the developer. Other apps rely on advertisements to generate revenue. 

Here’s how to find those free apps on your iPhone.

The download button to the right of the app name tells you whether it is free, or if you’ve already downloaded it. You will see one of these indicators: 

  • “Get” means that the app is free. To download it, tap “Get.” Even though the app is free, you’ll be asked to validate the download by entering your Apple ID (or use Touch ID or Face ID, depending upon how your iPhone is configured).

  • “Open” means it’s already installed on your phone. Tap “Open” to launch the app.
  • A cloud icon means you already own the app. It had been installed in the past and was deleted. You can tap it to download it again. 
  • A price indicates that it’s a paid app, and it will show how much it costs.  

You can also tap the name of the app to open a page with more detailed information, and download it from there.
