How do I permanently delete an app from the iCloud in the app store on my iPhone 7 plus? I downloaded the app to my ihone but cannot log in to the app. So I deleted it from my home screen and though redownloading it would work. But it doesn't. I need to get it out of the iCloud so I can download a refreshed version. How do I permanently delete it from the iCloud?

  • Have you contacted the developers? If it will launch but you can't login, it would seem the app itself is working.

The cloud symbol in the App Store only indicates that you already bought the app. Redownloading it gives you the same version as people get which buy it fresh.
