Question About Apps with No Restore Purchases Option

iOS and iPadOS
Hi, I'm considering getting a 5th Generation iPod Touch soon, as I need one with more space, but something occured to me just now. There are some games I've purchased upgrades for, such as DiceWorld's no-ads upgrade, and all weapons in the Sixth Sense game, but I don't remember seeing a "restore purchases" option in these apps. If that's the case, and I do get the new iPod, would those upgrades be automatically applied when I install the apps onto the new device, or would I have to purchase them again? Thanks. Yours Sincerely, Kelly Sapergia

If the app doesn't have a restore purchases option then most likely you will have to repurchase the upgrades again.

Hi Isaac, thanks for answering my question. That's what I thought. Darn!

If you go through the purchase process, after you enter the password the files will download without billing you. So yes, go through the buying steps, but then you don't have to pay again.
