The main purpose of diff is to generate a patch which can then be
apply/revert changes across two versions of a file.
That would sanely be called "patch", not "diff".
See man patch. diff consists of differences between files, and patch
folds those differences back into the original.
Then that should be:
$ patch --gen-diff
$ patch --apply-diff
