It doesn’t matter if you specially removed (in one of many ways) the application (game) from the device or it happened by chance, you should not worry about it – you can still return it. Moreover, you can restore both the program itself or the game, and all the data that was created by the application during your work with it. And this is very cool!

Don’t worry, you could undelete an accidentally deleted app on iPhone or iPad anytime you want. Before you begin, you need to remember that all manipulations are performed under one Apple ID account.

  • Even if it has already been deleted from the App Store – all the same, everything will be restored.

In order to make restore deleted apps use your gadget and follow these steps. Here we learned how to find deleted apps in App Store:

How to Return All Data of Removed Games and Applications on iPhone and iPad

Here, a lot depends on where these same data and saves were stored previously – two ways are possible: On the developer’s servers – especially important for games or in iCloud.

In the first case, everything is quite simple and elementary. When you start the game you will need to enter the username and password with which you played before. By doing this, all achievements, results and progress made during the game will be loaded.

In theory, all data should also “pull itself up” from the cloud immediately after installing the application. However, this may not happen. Why? There are two reasons:

  • The program itself does not support the synchronization of its data in iCloud;
  • You have prohibited the application to store your data in the “cloud”.


The surest and proven way is to save and restore the backups. Using a computer or iCloud – it does not matter! In most cases, after this procedure, absolutely all applications and games that were at the time of its creation will be returned to the iPhone.
