Re: Apps icon missing

Hi @Bettyboo1, let me see if I can help out here!


It seems like you have selected to hide the App icon on the home screen, you can get it back by following this guide: 

  1. Touch and hold an empty area on your home screen until the device vibrates.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Tap the switch beside Enable swipe up to hide or show the Apps icon.

This should get the App icon back on your home screen. Let me know how it went! Slightly smiling Face
