How to Restore missing App Store icon from iPhone or iPad
Method 1 – Double Check Everywhere:
Sometimes by mistake we put an app in a folder so you should check all your folders. Run through your home screen carefully and check for App store. Also use search option to search for “App Store” to see if it appears.
Method 2 – Check Restrictions:
1. Open Settings from your home screen.
2. Tap on “General“.
3. Scroll down and look for “Restrictions“ and Tap on it.
4. Make sure “App Store” is set to “On”.
Method 3 – Reset Home Screen:
Now this solution worked for everyone, first may be App Store icon is on other screens so go ahead and check for it. If you still can’t find it try the following steps.
“Settings” > “General “> “Reset” > “Reset Home Screen Layout“
This will take your home screen back to its default settings and restore the App Store icon. If by any means still there is no luck then as i suggested before take it to your near Apple Store they’ll fix this for you.
