Making payments with your iPhone using Apple Pay is super convenient. But over time, your Apple Pay activity can clutter up your payment history. If you want to clean up your Apple Pay transactions list, deleting your Apple Pay history is easy to do.
If you’re short on time, here’s a quick answer to your question: You can delete individual transactions from your Apple Pay history on your iPhone by swiping left on any payment and tapping ‘Delete’. To clear your entire Apple Pay history, go to Settings > Wallet & Apple Pay > Tap your card > Tap ‘Delete Card’.
Check Your Apple Pay History
Keeping track of your Apple Pay transactions is important for managing your finances and ensuring the accuracy of your purchases. Fortunately, checking your Apple Pay history is a simple process. Just follow these steps:
Open the Wallet app on your iPhone
To access your Apple Pay history, locate and open the Wallet app on your iPhone. This app is typically pre-installed on your device and can be easily found by swiping through your home screens or by using the search feature.
Tap on your credit or debit card
Once you have opened the Wallet app, locate and tap on your credit or debit card. This will bring up a screen that displays various details about your card, including your recent transactions.
Scroll down to view your recent Apple Pay transactions
On the card details screen, scroll down to find the section that displays your recent Apple Pay transactions. Here, you will find a list of your most recent purchases made using Apple Pay, along with the date, time, and amount of each transaction.
By regularly checking your Apple Pay history, you can ensure that all of your transactions are accounted for and identify any suspicious or unauthorized charges. This can help safeguard your financial information and provide you with peace of mind.

Delete Individual Apple Pay Transactions
If you want to remove specific transactions from your Apple Pay history, follow these simple steps:
Swipe left on any Apple Pay transaction
Start by opening the Wallet app on your iPhone and navigating to the “Transactions” tab. Here, you will find a list of all your Apple Pay transactions. To delete a specific transaction, simply swipe left on it.
Tap ‘Delete’ to remove that specific transaction
Once you’ve swiped left on the transaction you want to delete, a delete button will appear. Tap on the “Delete” button to remove that particular transaction from your Apple Pay history.
Confirm deletion when prompted
After tapping on “Delete,” Apple Pay will ask you to confirm your decision. This is to prevent accidental deletions. Simply confirm the deletion by tapping on the “Confirm” or “Delete” option, and the transaction will be permanently removed from your Apple Pay history.
By following these steps, you can easily delete individual Apple Pay transactions that you no longer want to keep track of. Keep in mind that deleting a transaction will only remove it from your history, and it will not affect any refunds or purchases you have made.
Clear Your Entire Apple Pay History
To clear your entire Apple Pay history, follow these simple steps:
Go to Settings > Wallet & Apple Pay
Open the Settings app on your iPhone and scroll down until you find “Wallet & Apple Pay.” Tap on it to access the settings for your Apple Pay.
Tap on the card you want to delete
Once you are in the Wallet & Apple Pay settings, you will see a list of all the cards you have added to Apple Pay. Find the card that you want to delete and tap on it.
Scroll down and tap ‘Delete Card’
Scroll down to the bottom of the card settings and you will see an option that says “Delete Card.” Tap on it to proceed with the deletion.
Confirm card deletion when prompted
You will receive a prompt asking you to confirm the deletion of the card. Make sure you are certain about deleting the card as this action cannot be undone. Tap on “Delete” to confirm.
Note: It’s important to keep in mind that deleting a card will remove all of its transaction history from Apple Pay. This means that you will no longer be able to view any past transactions made with that card through the Apple Pay app or website.
Deleting your Apple Pay history is a great way to maintain your privacy and keep your financial information secure. By following these steps, you can easily clear your entire Apple Pay history for a specific card.
Re-Add a Card to Start Fresh
If you want to use Apple Pay with that card again, you’ll need to re-add it
If you’ve previously deleted a card from your Apple Pay history and now want to use it again, don’t worry! You can easily re-add the card to your Apple Pay wallet and start fresh. This is especially useful if you’ve changed your mind or if you’ve resolved any issues that led you to delete the card in the first place.
Open the Wallet app and tap the ‘+’ icon
To re-add a card to your Apple Pay, simply open the Wallet app on your iPhone or iPad and look for the “+” icon. This icon is usually located in the top-right corner of the screen or at the bottom of the app, depending on your device.
Follow the prompts to re-add your card
Once you tap the “+” icon, you’ll be guided through a series of prompts to re-add your card to Apple Pay. These prompts will ask you to provide the necessary information, such as your card details and security code. Make sure to enter the correct information to ensure a smooth re-addition process.
Your Apple Pay history will start fresh when you add the card back
After successfully re-adding your card to Apple Pay, you’ll notice that your Apple Pay history starts fresh. This means that any previous transaction data associated with the card will no longer be visible.
However, please note that this does not delete the transaction history from your bank or credit card provider’s records.

Alternative Option: Turn Off Transaction History
Instead of deleting your Apple Pay history, you can stop it from being saved
Deleting your Apple Pay history may not be necessary if you simply want to prevent future transactions from being recorded. By turning off the transaction history feature, you can ensure that no new transactions will be saved going forward.
Go to Settings > Wallet & Apple Pay > Transaction History
To turn off the transaction history feature, open the Settings app on your iPhone and navigate to the “Wallet & Apple Pay” section. From there, you will find an option for “Transaction History.”
Toggle ‘Transaction History’ off
Once you locate the “Transaction History” option, simply toggle it off. This will disable the feature and prevent any new Apple Pay transactions from being saved to your device. It’s important to note that this will not delete any existing transaction history, but it will prevent any new transactions from being recorded.
New Apple Pay transactions won’t be saved after this point
After you have turned off the transaction history feature, any new Apple Pay transactions you make will not be saved on your device. This can help to maintain your privacy and keep your transaction history from becoming cluttered.

Keeping your Apple Pay history clean gives you better oversight of your spending habits. By deleting individual transactions or clearing your entire history, you can start fresh whenever needed.
The next time your Apple Pay activity becomes cluttered, don’t hesitate to delete your history. Just remember to re-add any cards you still want to use for contactless payments. Enjoy the convenience of Apple Pay without the messy transaction list!
