  3. Tap the search bar. This is at the top of the Search screen. Doing so will bring up your iPhone’s or iPad’s keyboard.
  4. Enter an app’s name or function. If you have a specific app in mind, type in its name; otherwise, type in a keyword or phrase that will help find an app to suit your needs.
    • For example, if you’re looking for a drawing app, you might type in draw or paint here.
  5. Tap Search. This blue button is in the keyboard. Doing so will search the App Store for your entered word or phrase and bring up a list of matching/related apps.
  6. Select an app. Scroll through the list of apps until you find one that you want, then tap the app’s title to open the its page.
  7. Tap GET. It’s a blue button on the right side of the page.
