where to find offloaded apps

iOS & iPadOS

Due to a problem with my iPhone storage I had to offload a lot of apps prior to updating to iOs 11.
Now I cannot for the little fragile life of me find the offloaded apps in the settings.
I know they are on the home screen but are they in the settings?

Assuming the apps you offloaded are still available, you can download them from the AppStore and your data should be automatically restored.

Hi. I'm assumming you've had a prior version of ios 11 on your device, so if you didn't please forgive me. But, if you do, the app icon should be there. So say you have Pandora off-loaded onto the cloud. If you toch the Pandora icon, it'll say, Pandora in Icloud. Hope this helps.

You will also find your offload apps in the iPhone storage section in the General settings category it will show if your apps of an offload or not
