How do I downgrade an iPhone app to a previous version?

So you were tired of those home screen badge numbers showing up on the App Store icon and you updated your iPhone apps on the go. Now whenever you use one of these updated apps it doesn't work properly or you don't like the so-called improvements made by the developer. How can you downgrade to the previous version?

1. Delete the app from your iPhone.
2. Connect your iPhone to the computer and open iTunes.
3. Do not update your apps in iTunes. Back up and sync your iPhone using iTunes.
4. When the sync is complete, click your iPhone in the left iTunes menu under DEVICES. Click the Apps tab at the top of the iTunes window. Find the app you wish to downgrade under Sync Apps.
5. Make sure the box is checked next to the app you wish to downgrade. Click the Apply button.
6. The old version of the application will be copied from your computer to the iPhone.

If you have already updated the application on your computer, or synced your iPhone before deleting the new version of the app you must follow this step first. Open the trash can or recycling bin and look for the older app version (this file will end with the suffix .ipa).

Drag the old app file into the iTunes window. iTunes will ask if you want to replace the app with an older version. Confirm and begin from step one above. If the old version is not in your trash can you cannot access the older version of the app.

Thank you for your help. I did find that I could not drag an app directly out of the trash and into iTunes. I had to move the app out of the trash first, before moving it into iTunes.

This did not work at all 10/10 would not recommend.

In fact, I am really upset because I lost all of my information in my app following your advice.
At least with the new version of the app that I disliked, I still had all of my information in it, following your advice made me lose everything.

Thanks a lot. I wished I did not see this page.

you're an ingrate in addition to being an idiot. nice combination!

The warranties for some branded cars may go up to 3 or 4 years depending
on the model. The turbo 4-banger in the Volkswagon GTI Mk5 is
fairly unique among such engines in that it produces huge amounts of torque at a relatively low number of RPMs.
Go to the search tool and search for keyword like used cars in Bangalore, pre owned cars and
second hand cars in Bangalore.

There's definately a lot to learn about this issue. I like all the points yyou made.

Hello all of you that already did this!

My problem is that I already empty my trash can weeks ago before I even updated my facebook app. So therefor I can't find anything there. Is there any possibility that I can still make it work? I really dont like this new version of the app also it makes some of my friends don't show when they are online/last seen online and even read the messages. Does someone know what to do about this also?

Thanks for all the answers! :)
