How to Restore Deleted Apps on iPhone or iPad from App Store in iOS 13 or Earlier

Mistakenly removed some apps from your iOS device? Bother not as you can still recover deleted apps on your iPhone and iPad from App Store.

Thanks to things like iCloud, Apple has made app management much easy and hassle-free. Remember there was a time when, if you deleted an app, you had to either rely on an iTunes backup or just repurchase the app if you wanted it so badly?

Things have changed a lot since that time. Now, if you ever accidentally delete an app, you don’t have to worry or panic as you can recover the deleted app very easily on your iOS device. What’s more, re-downloading the app doesn’t cost you anything if you’ve already bought the app.
