Apple Silicon Macs can run some (but not all) apps for iOS and iPadOS. You can purchase and download them from the Mac App Store.

If they don't show in the Mac App Store, then either they don't work with macOS, or the developer doesn't want them to run on macOS (e.g. because they have a Mac version.)
