iCloud Drive will not save any apps. They are meant only to save documents.
But your apps are linked to your Apple ID. So whenever you wish to download them again, you can download them for free with the same apple ID. The data in the apps are saved in icloud which we cannot see.
Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you find any difficulty.
I opened up iCloud Drive, but there is not a single app listed. Why?
see the right pic under step 6 here,
there are many apps listed.
iCloud drive will not save any apps. It is only meant to save documents that you may have. So when you open icloud drive, the only apps you will see are the apps that can save documents (with an option to turn it on or off).
What apps do you have on your iphone? With that we can identify why they are not showing up in icloud drive.
Notes, Pages, Numbers,....
So you don't see anything like in the following screenshot in your iCloud Drive?
I certainly see those you showed me.
But the problem is, when I opened up iCloud Drive, but there is not a single app listed.
there should be many apps listed.
what version of iOS do you use? To find that, go to settings > general > about. What is the version listed there?
I don't think all the apps will be listed there. I can see only pages in my icloud drive. let me research more into it. Please give me a few minutes.
sorry I could not find an answer to the problem. I ran through the Internet and found that many are having such issues. So it should be something related to Apple. Do you have an apple store nearby?
Anyway, your documents are safe if you are updating them to icloud.
hi are you still there?
yes I am. Did you get my last reply? I am reposting it anyway.
