I have an iPhone 5 and need to buy an app which is quite expensive. The first question: if I want to use this app on my iPad (which has the same Apple ID), would I have to buy it again or not?

The second question: I am thinking about buying an iPhone 6 after 2-3 months and then selling my iPhone 5, would I have to buy this app again or not?

When you purchase the app, it stays associated to the Apple ID you used. You can install it on other iOS devices, too.

Quoth Apple:

You can associate your Apple ID with up to 10 devices, with a maximum of 5 computers at any time. Each computer must also be authorized using the same Apple ID.

You can re-install it on a new iOS device in the future. Remember to Erase All Content and Settings, and sign out of iCloud before you sell your iPhone 5.

  • I'm not sure if there is a limit to the number of iDevices one can install the app on, I could be wrong, though. – RedEagle2000 Jul 31 '15 at 4:45
