It’s one of the most frustrating things that can happen when you’re using your iPhone: you accidentally removed an app from your home screen. Whether you meant to do it or not, it can be a real pain if you don’t know how to get the app back. Don’t worry though, we’ve got you covered. In this article, we’ll provide some tips on what to do if you accidentally removed an app from your home screen on your iPhone. Read on to find out more.
Check Your App Library
The first thing you should do if you’ve accidentally removed an app from your home screen is to check your app library. It’s likely that the app is still installed on your device, but it just isn’t showing up on your home screen. To access your app library, simply swipe left on your home screen until you see the list of all your apps. If the app is there, you can simply tap on it to bring it back to your home screen.
Search for The App
If the app isn’t in your app library, it’s likely that it has actually been uninstalled from your device. Don’t worry though, you can easily reinstall it. To do this, simply open the App Store and search for the app you want to reinstall. Once you find it, tap the “Download” button to install it onto your device.
Restore From iCloud
If you have an iCloud account, you can also restore apps from your iCloud account. To do this, go to the App Store and tap the “Purchased” tab at the bottom of the screen. Here, you will see a list of all the apps you have purchased, including the one you accidentally removed. Tap the “Install” button next to the app to reinstall it onto your device.
Restore From iTunes
If you have a backup of your device stored in iTunes, you can also restore apps from there. To do this, open iTunes and connect your iPhone to your computer. Select your device and then go to the “Apps” tab. Here, you will see a list of all the apps on your device, including the one you accidentally removed. Select the app and then click the “Install” button to reinstall it onto your device.
Reorganize Your Apps
Once you have the app reinstalled, you may want to reorganize your home screen to make it easier to find the app you accidentally removed. To do this, you can use an app like Organize – Home Screen Layout Manager. This app lets you quickly and easily reorganize your home screen, so you can quickly find the app you accidentally removed. It’s available on the App Store for free.
Reinstall from Third-Party App Stores
If the app you accidentally removed isn’t available on the App Store, you can also try reinstalling it from a third-party app store. There are a few popular third-party app stores out there, such as Aptoide and APKPure, that you can use to download and install apps that aren’t available on the App Store. Just make sure you only download apps from trusted sources.
Contact the App Developer
If you still can’t find the app you accidentally removed, the last resort is to contact the app developer. Most developers will be more than happy to help you out, so don’t hesitate to contact them if you need help. You can usually find their contact information on their website or on the App Store.
Accidentally removed an app from your home screen on your iPhone? Don’t worry, there are a few ways to get it back. Check your app library, search for the app in the App Store, restore from iCloud or iTunes, reorganize your home screen, and reinstall from third-party app stores. If all else fails, contact the app developer for help. Now you know what to do if you accidentally removed an app from your home screen on your iPhone!
