All you need to do is go to Settings on the iPhone :
  • Go to General.
  • Go to Reset.
  • Then go to Reset Home Screen Layout and the app will reappear.


The software is still in the phone just the icon was deleted.
thank you so much for this info!!!!
I tried that after I deleted and "Videos" icon, and it doesn't restore the icon.
how about my downloaded icons, will it be deleted if I will reset home screen layout?
thanks that fixed my problem
