Hi there, purchased in 2012 the first iPad retina and upgraded one day to IOS7.4.1 - Still happy with it and I do not want to upgrade at the moment, preferring bugs and slowness. MY PROBLEM: If I recall corretly, one day some years ago the app- application disappeared because of a changement of licensing by apple. There was a warning and then it disappeared, perhaps when upgrading from IOS6 to 7.. Well, since I did not purchase things in the apple store, for a long time I didn´t care. BUT now, I want to upgrade some apps and purchase one or another - and I am logically unable to do it because there isn´t the App Store app no more. I do regularly backups/sync on my MBP (OSX 10.8.5) , but there aren´t old backups of the iPad with IOS6 or with the app-store- application of that time (used the iPad not much at that time). But I own two iPhones 5 with still IOS 7.4.1 on it. So my QUESTIONS ARE: 1) Can I get just the App Store-app somewhere without being obliged to upgrade to higher IOS? 2) Or could I just a new backup wipe the iPad and restore just the IOS 7 (both with full functioning app-Store application on them) of one of my iPhones with all the content on it on my iPad? That would be perhaps the most easy way to do. Any Ideas? Thank you.
