I've accidentally deleted the AppStore application from my iPhone. I have tried to reset the home screen layout but it didn't work. How do I get my AppStore icon back?


From idle screen, go to:
  • Settings > General > Restrictions, and enter your passcode,
  • On the next page you'll see a list of Icons with On or Off options next to them.
  • Select the AppStore icon, turn it ON

Thanks to Lyn for this tip.
