Do apps on your iPhone and iPad disappear? Try this

Incredible but true: if you have iOS 11 installed on your iPhone or iPad, you may have noticed that some of the apps you have installed on your device disappear as if by magic . Is it the fault of an iOS 11 bug ? Will I have deleted them without wanting to?

Do not panic: this is a new feature of iOS 11 that aims to optimize your user experience by freeing you from the apps you do not use, because if you do not use them, they only take up space in your memory.

This measure is especially useful for devices with limited storage and yes, it is very effective, although it may annoy and bewilder us when we discover that an app has disappeared.

So if you look for that app, you will find a cloud next to its name, indicating that it has been deleted. Eye: it removes them from the device, but does not erase them from the desktop . How is it possible?

Although this function is disabled by default, according to 9to5Mac some users would have it enabled without having done it manually. Another possibility is that iOS 11 activates it automatically if it detects that you are running out of space .

How to prevent apps from disappearing from your iPhone automatically? 

Go to Settings > iTunes & App Store and slide to the lower area, right where the Uninstall apps not used option appears and make sure it is unchecked, if you want to avoid these unexpected disappearances.

However, it is not such a bad idea to have it activated , since it simply removes apps that do not use the statistics, but keeps all the data and documents so you can use it again as before installing it again.

Remember that even if the app is paid, if you have already paid for it or you got it during a promotion, you will not have to pay your current cost again. Of course, if the app disappears from the App Store, you can not recover it .
