    Safari icon get disappeared from iPad 2 home screen

    Yesterday, my son took my iPad 2 for playing games and deleted ‘Safari’ icon from the home screen accidentally. Now, I am not able to find it under iPad settings or iTunes while syncing. What has to be done for restoring the icon to the home page?

    Re: Safari icon get disappeared from iPad 2 home screen

    First of all, try to reset the ‘Home Page Layout’ of your iPad and see whether it restores the icon. For that, you need to first tap over the ‘Settings’ icon on the home screen. After that, hit the ‘General’ option in the left pane of main settings. Then, press the ‘Reset’ option from general settings displayed on the screen. You can then reset the layout by tapping the ‘Reset Home Page Layout’ option. If this doesn’t help to resolve the issue, then tap the ‘Restrictions’ under main settings list. Then, slide the switch next to ‘Safari’ item into ‘OFF’ mode.

    If your safari browser icon is disappeared from ipad homescreen , then you can get back again by just doing some settings

    Get the safari browser icon back to homescreen

    --> Go to "Setting" and then "General"
    --> now tap on "Restriction" and check whether safari is on or off.
    --> It should be "On" to see safari icon on the home screen

    If there safari is already on ,then try the below method to get back the safari browser icon on homescreen

    --> Go to "setting" and then "general"
    --> now select the "Reset"
    --> now click on "Reset homescreen layout"

    I hope from above two method will help to get your safari browser icon again to homescreen.
