Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

The Settings app can't be deleted. So it should be there. Did you check folders (icon that store multiple apps) or other home screen pages ?

Which model of iPhone is this ?

I see you are a Mac technician. Do you really handle iPhone problems.
Mac Support Specialist: Ashik, Mac Technician replied 8 months ago

In the home screen, swipe right and this will bring the Search. Type Settings there and it will show the icon. If not, then hold down the home button and this will bring Siri. Ask Siri to open Settings i.e say "Open Settings". This will open Settings. Then go to General > Reset and tap Reset Home Screen Layout. That will bring it back.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so I will continue to help you until we fix the problem

Note : This is not my final answer. I strive to provide Excellent service or 5 star service. If you feel you've received anything less or if you are not satisfied or if my solutions didn't work, please don't rate me bad or poor or ok as it will badly affect my job here. Instead, please let me know and I will try my best to help you until you are fully satisfied or the issue is resolved.

If it still not working, then do a soft reset and let me know if it works or not

Press and hold down the Power button and Home button at the same time until it shows the Apple logo. When you see the Apple logo, release the buttons and let it boot. Only reset if you know the passcode to unlock the screen of your device.

Note : Power button is the button you use to turn off your iPhone or its screen. Home button is the round button at front bottom.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
