IRS just approved my federal tax return. Am I going to receive it by mail or are they going to deposit it to my account as it was my preliminary choice in first place?

What does it say with this tool at the IRS website?

It says "Your tax refund is scheduled to be mailed by June 26, 2019. If you do not receive the refund by July 24, 2019, please contact us again. We are unable to take any action until then."

That would indicate the IRS intends to mail you a check.

 

If you chose direct deposit originally, here are the reasons from a FAQ on the IRS website that tells why one can end up with a mailed check instead:

 

  • The IRS can only deposit refunds electronically into accounts in your own name, your spouse's name or in a joint account.
  • A financial institution may reject a direct deposit.
  • The IRS can’t deposit more than three electronic refunds into a single financial account.

The first 2 reasons are the most common.
