How To: Restore deleted iOS apps


From the beginning, I had my reservations about Apple products; no, it wasn't because of the price(maybe a little, but that's a rant for another time), but mainly it was because of things like this. Why would you have to re-purchase an app you already paid for just because you lost it(or uninstalled it)? At least that's what you had to do until not-so-long ago when Apple finally let users restore deleted iOS apps directly from the App Store.
How To: Restore deleted iOS apps


Here's how:

On devices running iOS 11

  • Launch the App Store
  • Click on the prrofile icon at the top right corner.
  • Tap on Purchased > My Purchases
  • Choose Not on this iPhone.
  • Select the app you wish to restore and hit the cloud icon.

On older versions of iOS

  • Launch the App Store
  • Tap on Updates-Purchased at the bottom menu.
  • Select Not on this iPhone.
  • Search for the app you want to restore and then tap on the coud icon.
Of course, you could always use the iTunes method
  • Connect your iDevice to your PC or Mac then launch iTunes.
  • Click on the device icon(should be somewhere in the sidebar), then select Apps > Install for the apps you need.
  • Select Automatically Install New Apps if you want your apps on iTunes to sync with your iPhone whenever you connect.

And there you go! You don't have to pay for an app twice(or more; depending on how frequently your apps get missing or uninstalled)!
