How To Re-Download Apps On Your iPad in 5 Easy Steps

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

The best thing about having an iPad is that you get to do whatever the heck you want with and to it. If you want a baby blue Smart Cover for it then you can deck out your iPad with a baby blue Smart Cover. If you want to download nothing but sports apps such as FanCake or NBC Sports Talk then you go on right ahead and litter your iPad screens with nothing but sports apps; it’s your iPad and you get to make the rules.

However, with that power comes great responsibility, so try not to go too app downloading crazy or you very well may end up with no free hard drive space! And, yes, that can happen even on a 64GB iPad. We know many iPad users that have been in that situation and were forced to delete an app off their iPad to make room for a newer app that they must have.

Whether you have to delete an app off of your iPad because you need more space to download a different app or you found that a certain app you downloaded isn’t what you were looking for you always have the option to re-download that app at a later date; even if you paid for it.  This is especially important if you want to take advantage of all of the 13 beautiful apps for your new iPad Retina display

How? Good question. Re-downloading and re-installing deleted apps is very simple and something you don’t need to come into your nearest iHospital location to have done by one of our trusty D.i.D. Doctors of iDevices, but that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t enjoy your company. On this one though we believe you have the abilities to perform the task at hand and it is something that many people do ask about when walking into our iHospitals, which is why we’ve decided to give you a how-to when it comes to re-downloading and re-installing iPad apps.

The process of getting an app back onto your iPad that you once deleted is very simple, as long as you follow the steps we’ve listed below:

  1. Open the App Store.
  2. Click on the ‘Purchases’ tab at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Look at all the apps you’ve purchased and find the one you want to re-download.
  4. Click on the icon beside the app that’s shaped like a cloud and has a downward pointing arrow inside of it.
  5. Enter your app store once prompted.

Bam! Once you do the above steps your app should be re-downloading and re-installing itself onto your iPad once again and you’ll be able to enjoy it like you did before or remember why you deleted it in the first place and delete it again. Like we said it’s your iPad and you get to do what you want to it! Note, you can re-download and re-install both free and paid apps and you won’t be charged again for re-downloading a previously paid app you deleted.
