I have an iPhone 5s running the latest version of iOS 7. I was attempting to install an app but every time it installed it would disappear right after it was finished downloading and installing. So I turned my phone off and on again to see if that would work, and it did not. But then I noticed half my apps are now missing and the SETTINGS icon is gone. Also, the app store icon is missing. I thought it might just be hidden in a folder somewhere so I used search and it returned no results.
I cannot reset my phone without the settings icon. I tried to do it from iTunes but it will not restore the phone until I turn find my iPhone off by going to settings on the phone. Can anyone help me out?
Can you search for setttings, once you have it open, then go to reset, reset home screen layout.
Slide finger down on screen to get Search Screen. Type "setting" into bar and search. Then in the Settings App > General > Reset > Reset Home Screen Layout.
Like I said, I searched for settings. It's not there.
As I mentioned in my original post, I tried searching for it in spotlight and it is not there. It is not on my phone anywhere. It sounds bizzare but it's absolutely true. I searched the Internet and it looks like I'm one of the first people to experience this bug.
