Have you just received a new iPhone or iPad that you can not recover from a backup? Do you want to restart your old device? After you set up your phone or tablet, it's time to restore your favorite apps and games.
How to Find Previously Installed Apps

Open the App Store and go to the Today tab. Touch your profile icon in the top right corner to view your account information.
Touch "Purchased" here.
On the next screen, tap My Purchases.
See all the apps and games you downloaded or purchased from your iCloud account. The list is sorted in reverse chronological order so that the most recent downloads are displayed first.
Tap "Not on this iPhone / iPad" at the top of the screen to see a list of apps and games you have not downloaded yet.
Find the apps you want to restore, and then tap the download icon to start the installation process.
 If you've made a long list over the years, tap the "Search" box at the top to find a specific app in your purchase history.
