Amazon Prime Video is back in the iOS App Store and Apple TV [Updated]

What you need to know

  • Amazon Prime Video has dissapeared from iOS.
  • Users across Twitter are reporting the app is no longer available.
  • Users who still have the app installed are currently able to use it.

UPDATE #2: Apple and Amazon have fixed the issue, restoring Prime Video in the iOS App Store and tvOS App Store.

UPDATE: According to Recode's Peter Kafka, the Amazon Prime Video app should return to the App Store soon. Apparently, it was a bug and not intentional.

Reports across Twitter suggest that Amazon Prime Video for iOS is no longer avaiable. Several users reported that they are no longer able to use the Video app on iOS. The error message states that the app has been removed from the App Store by the developer.

Indeed when searching for the app, Prime Video no longer appears in the top results.


Having not updated either my phone or TV, both apps remain on my iPhone and Apple TV and seem to be fully functional. As of just now, it seems that anyone who has the app already installed should still be able to use it. The range of Twitter reports suggest this is a global issue, with reports the app is no longer available on the App Store in the UK, US, Germany and several other countries.

This story is developing.
