Have you ever had the experience of trying to find the App Store on your iPhone, only to find that it’s missing? Don’t worry, this is not an uncommon problem and there are several things you can do to fix it.
The first thing you should do is check to make sure that the App Store is actually missing. Don’t try to find the app by actually searching for the icon. Instead, slide down and type in “App Store” in the search bar. If you still can’t find it, you may have accidentally hidden it or it may be restricted.
If you have restrictions on your phone, this may be the reason why your App Store is missing. To fix this, tap Settings and go to the new iOS 12 screen time. From there, go to content privacy and restrictions. Check to see if this is turned on and toggle it off if it is. If you need the restrictions, toggle some of the features back and forth to see how it affects the behavior of your phone.
If this still doesn’t work, you can do a reset home screen layout by going to Settings General and then selecting reset. Be careful when doing this because it will reset all of your icons to default settings.
If you’re using an iPad that was provided to you by an organization you work for, it’s possible that they have some kind of mobile device management on it. If this is the case, you may need to talk to your IT department.
Finally, remember not to fumble around and try to find the app you’re looking for. Instead, slightly pull down and type in the first few letters of the app you want. This will save you time and ensure that you find the app you’re looking for.
In conclusion, if you’re missing the App Store on your iPhone, don’t panic. Follow these simple steps and you should be able to restore it in no time. Remember, if all else fails, you can always contact your IT department for further assistance.
