Q: How to reinstalling DLC / InApp Purchases?

Hi,

Iīve searched but could not find aynthing here, so:

I buy a game plus some DLC for it via InApp Purchase.

Then I delete that game, so the DLC getīs deleted, too.

Now when I to reinstall that game - how do I get my DLC back?
it is as simple as redownloading it from the AppStore/ InApp Purchase?

Is it backed up with the Game in my iTunes Library?

thanks in advance!

You "purchase" it again.
Just like if you go into itunes and want to redownload a game the game will ask you to buy whatever DLC you tapped on. As long as you are signed in with the same itunes account it will see that you already purchased it and it will download without charging you again

I was kind of bothered this was never made very clear to me as well, espcially with universal apps (did I need to rebuy it?). I finally got one app, SkyVoyager, that finally explained this process well.
