Earlier today, with a distinct lack of coffee flowing through my system, I managed to delete an 800+ word post that I had been working on. I scoured the app and iA’s website for a “restore” function, but they report that iCloud does not provide one.
Then I remembered an amazing post on SixColors about how iCloud Drive has an extremely well-hidden restore function. The feature is hidden hilariously well and is only accessible from a desktop browser, but the good news is that it works!
A few clicks later and I had my article back within iA Writer, like nothing had happened. Apple should really, really build this function into the iCloud Drive app on iOS 9.
