        I was able to reproduce this with our own app as well as with apps by other developers (e.g. Documents by Readdle).


        Our app stores its data in the app group:

        Foundation.FileManager.default.containerURL(forSecurityApplicationGroupIdentifier: AppGroupConstants.appGroupIdentifier).appendingPathComponent("File Provider Storage", isDirectory: true)!.appendingPathComponent("Media", isDirectory: true)


        1) Install the app from the App Store

        2) Add some data

        3) Manually offload the app (Settings -> General -> iPhone/iPad Storage -> *App Name* -> Offload App)

        4) Backup device to iCloud

        5) Reset device (Settings -> General -> Erase All Content and Settings)

        6) Restore device from iCloud Backup  (this is important - it works with iTunes backups)

        7) Open the app. Because it was offloaded it gets downloaded at this point but the app group data is NOT restored.


        This looks like a serious bug to me.


        Can someone confirm this?
