Restore accidentally deleted iPhone icon

Have you accidentally deleted an important iPhone icon and need to restore it?

Check the “App Library” by swiping left on the home screen to see if the deleted app icon is there.

Recovering Apps Using App Library and Home Screen

If you accidentally delete an app icon on your iPhone, you can easily recover it using the App Library and Home Screen.

To recover a deleted app using the App Library, simply swipe right on your home screen to access it. From there, you can search for the app you accidentally deleted and tap on it to open it.

If you prefer to recover the app icon to your Home Screen, you can do so by long-pressing on the home screen until the apps start jiggling. Then, tap the “+” button at the top left corner of the screen and search for the app in the App Library. Once you find it, tap on the app to add it back to your home screen.

Another way to recover a deleted app is by using the App Store. Simply open the App Store, search for the app you deleted, and tap the download button to reinstall it.

To prevent accidental deletion of app icons in the future, consider organizing your apps into folders on your home screen. This can help you avoid mistakenly deleting an app when rearranging icons.

By using these methods, you can easily restore accidentally deleted iPhone icons without the need for additional software or assistance.

Restoring Icons by Checking Installation and Download History

  • Open the App Store on your iPhone.
  • Tap on your profile picture in the top right corner.
  • Select Purchased to view your download history.
  • Scroll through the list to find the app with the missing icon.
  • Tap the cloud download icon to re-download the app and restore the icon to your home screen.

Resetting Home Screen and Disabling Restrictions

To reset your home screen and disable restrictions on your iPhone, follow these simple steps. First, go to the “Settings” app on your iPhone. Then, tap on “General” and scroll down to find “Reset.”

Next, tap on “Reset Home Screen Layout.” This will reset your home screen to its original layout, including any pre-installed iOS apps that may have been accidentally deleted.

If you have restrictions enabled on your iPhone, you may need to disable them in order to restore any accidentally deleted icons. To do this, go back to the “Settings” app and tap on “Screen Time.” Then, tap on “Content & Privacy Restrictions” and enter your passcode if prompted.

Once you have entered the passcode, tap on “Allowed Apps” and make sure that the app whose icon you accidentally deleted is allowed. If it is not, tap on the app to allow it.

After following these steps, your home screen should be reset to its original layout and any restrictions should be disabled, allowing you to restore any accidentally deleted icons. If you’re still having trouble, you may want to consider restoring your iPhone from a backup using iTunes or iCloud.

1. Press and hold the home button or say “Hey Siri” to activate Siri on your iPhone.
2. Once Siri is activated, say “Show me all my apps” or “Find [name of the hidden app]”.
3. Siri will then display a list of all the apps on your iPhone, including any hidden apps that may not be visible on your home screen.
