Camera Icon on iPhone


Camera Icon on iPhone

The camera icon has disappeared from my phone altogether.  I've done a search on my phone and  it just isn't there.  How do I get it back? I have also tried a restet/restore and that did not work.

Settings > General > Restrictions > Camera, change to off.


If that doesn't work, and the camera icon has not been moved to a folder, try:
Settings > General > Reset > Reset Home Screen Layout.

Try swipe right on home screen until you get to the Search view. Enter Camera. Look for it in the list of results under Applications.


Camera is built in, it can't be deleted. It must be hiding in a folder somewhere.
