Downloading an App on an iPhone or iPad

Date Written: 10/10/13

Whether you are using an iPhone or iPad, downloading an app to your device is easy. We'll walk through the process of downloading an app to your iOS device below.

To download an app to your iPhone or iPad, you will open the App Store on your device. The App Store comes standard on all of Apple's mobile devices. When you first open the App Store, you will see some apps that Apple is featuring at the time. These can include recommended apps or most popular apps and other categories as well. These are great to look through because you will soon learn that there is an app for everything and there may be one out there that can help you in your life.

If there is a specific app you are looking for, tap on the Search button that appears at the bottom of the screen. This will bring up a search bar where you can type the name of the app you are looking for. Once you find the app, tap on it. Here you can read an overview of the app from the app developer. You can also read reviews, leave reviews, check out screenshots of the app, among other things.

To download the app, we'll tap on the box that says 'Free'. If the app costs money, you'll see the price in this box instead of the word 'Free'. Next, that same box will now say 'Install' and we'll tap the box to start the install. At this point you may be prompted to enter your Apple ID and password. This would have been set up with Apple when you first got your device or first entered the app store. Next your app will start to download and you should notice a small icon showing you the progress of the install. Once finished, the same box will now say 'Open' and you should also have an icon on your main screen for the app. You are now ready to being using your new app.
