    Default How to restore Safari Browser on iPhone?

    I was walking down the road this afternoon when I noticed that I accidentally deleted some apps on my iPhone (I forgot to turn off the screen ). And also I noticed that on the dashboard, the Safari browser is missing.



    I checked the entire apps on my iPhone and I can't really find the Safari apps. So I tried to search it using "Search iPhone" and I saw that the Safari browser is still in the system.



    I know that the safari will not going anywhere but how will I put back this app on my dashboard?

    Please help! Thanks.

    OK I guess I am going to answer my own question

    This is what I found at apple website:

    Reset the Home screen layout:

    Choose General > Reset and tap Reset Home Screen Layout.


    Safari app is back :-)

    That's happened to me before - I've tapped the icon to launch Safari, only to see it disappear before my eyes.

    A reboot of the phone has fixed it every time.

    Darn - I was hoping to find out how you did it, coz I'd like to wish the Weather app away, now that I exclusively use PocketWeather.

    Move Weather to another screen.

    I have - banished it to the end of the queue (i.e. last screen), but it would have been nice to get rid of it altogether.

    Oh, well. Back to waiting for Apple to sort it all out.

    Jailbreak and use SBSettings to hide Weather or any other apps you like.
