    time, its a simple as that.
    Well assuming you can no longer access the http version and you have 301 redirect them to the https version

    Edit
    Sorry you have gone from https to http ? Why would you do that ?
    the answer is still the same just swap it around.

    Google will automatically index your site when you switch from http to https or vice-versa. Just give it some time.

    If you modify your Meta or submit a new sitemap, maybe it will index faster, but overall it will take time.

    Actually thinking about it, redirecting from a secure page to a none secure page will issue a warning. So I am afraid any external links to your https version will be lost.

    This is also true, however, the links pointing to both version still help to power your domain, and associated metrics. This is why in ahrefs they have the option to analyze http vs https versions.
