How to Reinstall Stock Apps

You delete stock apps like any other apps. You reinstall stock apps like any other apps as well. To reinstall an apple stock app:

  • Open the App Store.

  • Search for the stock app you want to reinstall.

  • Once you’ve found it, tap the cloud icon to reinstall the app.

  • It should take but a second to download, because while it appears stock apps are deleted, they’re more out of sight and out of mind than removed.
