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.

Thanks ! Helped me ..Although I had to get the file form recycle bin in another folder and then re-import it in itunes page.

Doesn't work. Thanks for trying.

yessss thank you so much!!! an app i used fixed a glitch in their latest update so i wanted to go but.. so i just finished follow these steps and it worked!

It's 100% working. Thank you very much.

Works fine!
Except for the fact that I couldn't drag the file to iTunes.
Somehow it seemed to be programmed to prevent this.

However, you can first drag it to your desktop and then drag it to iTunes......
;-)

Could you please tell us how? I tried having it on the desktop and dragging it to itunes (the latest version) but it didn't work.

Thanks for the solutions. It works!

This way is not available please help me

so when I followed the steps & did everything correctly, I did get Instagram back on my phone, but everytime I click on it to open, Instagram immediately crashes & closes. what do I do to make the downgraded version actually work?

What about the progress?

Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to
assist with SEO? I'm trying to get my blog to
rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good gains.
If you know of any please share. Thank you!

Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I
clicked submit my comment didn't show up. Grrrr... well
I'm not writing all that over again. Anyhow, just wanted
to say excellent blog!

LOL, what's up with the nonsense spambots?

Your method is worked but my previous whatsapp when install back to my iPhone i unable to use it. It said that my whatsapp version is too old, i have to download the latest version. Did you have any method to solve the problem? i really don't like the latest version of whatsapp because it unable to show preview notification.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that'sequally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you've hit the
nail on the head. The problem is something which too few
people are speaking intelligently about. I
am very happy that I found this in my hunt for something relating to this.

Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
It's on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same
page layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!

Wow that is a lot to do! On my android phone I just click one button "Remove Updates" on the app. lol

It worked but when I opened the app theres a pop up the exactly says "Please update your app - You are currently running an older version of the app. Please update your app to get the latest feature updates and bug fixes." Is there anything I can do to take it off?

My phone just says "you don't have the latest version of the app it's not compatible" UGH I really thought this would solve the problem of shitty updates

No longer works for me. If I try, my iPhone gets stuck on installing for a long time, then the app just disappears. No errors anywhere.

Will it work on Snapchat, it got really confusing
