If you are using Apple products like Iphone, Ipad or Mac book. Sometimes when we update any app it may fail or the apps don’t work the way it should.

Well if you have not cleared your Trash then you are saved.

  1. Open iTunes and delete the broken app completely.
  2. Remove the broken App from your iDevices .Also be careful that they don’t sync to iTunes and reinstall the App.
  3. Now open the Trash and copy the required app (your app name.ipa) and then drop it in the Library section of your iTunes window.
  4. Now check you app, you will find your older version active and working fine.
