Re: Apps button missing!

It’s an option. Maybe you activared it without wanting to. Slide up in home screen to access your applications. Slide down to search an application. To restore the button, check the launcher options. Hope it’s that and no other software issue...

@cmdv

Long press on any empty area on your homescreen -> Settings -> Deactivate "Hide Apps icon"
