Just because you've hidden them, it doesn't mean they're gone forever.

Back in October, we highlighted one of the new features in iOS 5 that allows you to hide previous App Store purchases from your ‘Purchased’ list. It’s great for removing all those apps and games that you may be ashamed of, such as Hello Kitty Parachute Paradise. But what happens if you want to reveal those purchases again?

Well, thankfully it’s easy to unhide them.

To reveal your past purchases, open up the App Store app on your device and tap on the ‘Featured’ tab, then scroll all the way to the bottom of the page. Now tap on the ‘Apple ID’ button, and then ‘View Apple ID’. You may need to reenter your account password.
