Apps no longer in App Store

Apps no longer in App Store

for a long time I wanted to get back some of my apps even I don't plan to always use them, the thing I don't like about iOS is if the app is no longer on your computer it won't sync from your backup, it won't even be in your purchased section if it's no longer in the App Store. I just thought about this now and was wondering if there is a possibility that certain apps may still exist on the web since back in the early days of jail breaking installous existed and I'm assuming those apps came from file sharing sites, I'm not going to ask for a web link to iOS apps but I'm finding it weird that it seems impossible for me to recover my lost apps from I think from ios5-7 days. I just want to know is there even a site that exists with older apps, do the app links from the days of installous still exist.

    Are you trying to run these apps on a new iPhone or old iPhone? The iPhone recently switch to 64-bit so old apps won't run at all.

    I'll try searching the app name with ipa in the search name and to answer what phone I'm using, it's an iPhone 4s unless me being on ios 9.3.5 will affect that.The apps should be able to install since they were originally on this phone.

    if you purchased them in the app store you can go there to the tab purchased and find it by name. then you can re-download it. I did that with my Manga Rock app when in was deleted from the app store
