    I assume this is on iTunes? I do see an App tab but don't see nothing else. I have the latest iTunes.

    there is an icon on your iPhone's home screen, labeled "Settings" with a pic of gears as the icon. Hit that.

    You obviously posted this thread in iPhones, but meant to post in the Mac forums.

    You can go into Finder and then open the Applications folder. Drag the safari app to the Dock and you'll have it back. Then right click Safari>Options and choose keep in Dock.

    no...this is an iPhone issue...

    I accidentally deleted safari from my iphone, hence why I asked about iTunes because I figured that it can be restored through iTunes once I plug my iPhone to my Mac.

    ^^^ What he said

    unless the poster accidently enabled parental controls and flicked the switch to restrict access? Does that remove the icon?

    Thank you. :) My Safari icon and iPod icon disappeared. I think it happened when I picked up my iPhone and realized all the icons were wiggling and 2 of the icons on the dock had disappeared. I must have accidentally deleted them. :eek:

    He didn’t. He either messed with parental controls or he moved it past the last page of apps.

    You have to be jailbroke and use ifile or a file explorer but I wouldn't do it, it really messes stuff up

    Seems like that was already answered earlier in the thread...3.5 years ago.
