There are times when you may get bored by an app installed on your iphone and you just don’t want to see on your iphone screen, this has happened with me some times so I deleted that app from the iphone but after some times I wanted to get it back, if this is something similar to what had happened with you, follow the guide below to know how to get back a deleted app on your iphone.


When it comes to app deletion, when ever you delete any app on your iphone then there is still a way to get it back with the help of iTunes but for that automatic sync of your iphone with iTunes must be disabled or you should cancel the automatic sync of iphone after connecting your iphone or ipod touch with your computer running iTunes.

Now, you have already deleted the app from the iphone, and then connected it your computer via iphone data cable and then cancelled the sync with iTunes. Select the iphone shown under iTunes, right click and then select transfer purchases
