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.
How to Recover and Reinstall Deleted Apps on iPhone or iPad from App Store in iOS 11
Step #1. Launch App Store on your iOS device.
Step #2. Now, tap on the profile icon at the top right corner.
Step #3. Next, tap on Purchased.
Step #4. Tap on My Purchases.
Step #5. Now, tap on “Not on This iPhone” menu on top.
Step #6. Find the app that you deleted and want to re-install. Then, tap on the cloud icon right next to the app, and the installation will begin.
Alternatively, you can also search for the purchased app on the App Store.
When you download the app (that you've already paid for), you won't be charged again.
So that's how easy it is to recover deleted apps on iOS devices! Have any feedback? Share it with us.
