Download an App from the Apple App Store

Download an App from the App Store.

  1. Open the App Store app.
  2. After answering a few prompts that appear only the first time that you use the App Store, select the "Search" button on the bottom right of the screen.
  3. Search for any app that you want on your iPad that wasn't automatically loaded onto your iPad for you. Select "Get".
  4. Tap the "Install" button. Since you are already signed into iCloud, you will only need to put in your Apple ID password.
    1. If it is your first time using the App Store with a newly created Apple ID, you will need to press "Review" to allow your account to be used in App Store. You also might have to do this with old accounts for various reasons.
    2. Make sure your region is set to "United States". After you are comfortable with the Apple Media Terms & Conditions, toggle the switch and then press "Next" on the top right of the window.
  5. Review your billing info. If you already added it, you can press "Next" on the top right part of the window again. Hit continue.
  6. Now your Apple ID is ready to use the App Store. Let's test to make sure it works. Select "Get" again for the App you want to download to your iPad.
  7. Tap install and add your Apple ID password. Tap "Sign in".
  8. The first time after you use the App Store, you are asked if you want to have put in your Apple ID password every time or if you put it in once, you can download free apps for 15 minutes without putting it in again. You can choose which option works for you.
  9. Press the physical home button to return home.
