I have a Apple IPad 2. I want to remove a home screen Icon, how do I do this?

After seeing that I want to remove icons I placed on my home screen, I now know that I really do not know how to remove these. I hold down icon till it shakes and swipe up and side to side to remove it and it only bounces back on my home screen. I want it gone forever.

My App Store icon has disappeared from my iPad and my apps do not show up in iTunes. My son can't play Boom Beach without updating it. Please, someone help me put the App Store Icon back on my iPad


Hello,

If the App Store icon seems to be missing from your Apple iPhone or iPad, give these steps a try to find it.

Fix 1 - Double Check Everywhere

Be sure the icon is not in a folder. Check every Home screen and every folder. Also use search to see if you can find it. From the Home screen, swipe all the way to the left screen, then search for "App Store" to see if it appears.

Fix 2 - Check Restrictions

  1. Open "Settings" from the Home screen.
  2. Tap "General".
  3. Select "Restrictions".
  4. Make sure "App Store" is set to "On" (green).

Fix 3 - Reset Home Screen

It is possible that the icon is on a different home screen or in a folder. Look on other screens and within folders. If you still can't find it, try resetting the home screen by selecting "Settings" > "General "> "Reset" > "Reset Home Screen Layout". This should return your icons to default settings and restore the App Store icon.

Note: If your iPad was provided to you by the organization you work for or a school, it is possible there is software on the device that locks access to the App Store. Ask your IT department for access if you feel this might be the case.

If that doesn't work, close Safari and reboot your iPad.
Double tap tap the home button and then swipe up on the Safari preview screen that you see right above the Safari icon. Swiping up on that screen will close the app.
Hold down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time until the Apple Logo appears on the screen. After the iPad starts up, try again.

I cannot get my IPad to delete some icons on my iPad screen I no longer need


When removing those icons you are actually deleting the apps from your ipad. There are some apps built into you ipad and those cannot be deleted.
However you can move them out of sight to another screen.
Or create a folder icon and move them there if you do not use them often.

Ipad 2 has a transparent line moving across screen


have you tried a hard ware reset?

turn off device, then hold the power button on top and the home key (make sure its not plugged in also)

keep Holding both keys... you will see the apple logo appear, and then flash off, and then it will restart again. If you keep holding the home key and the power key, it will continue in this loop. Holding it until it reboots once should be enough though, then just turn it on and let it boot normally.

Your settings and everything should remain the same, this just will reset the hardware on the device. I have had issues with my iPad 2 with games lately, mainly random crashing, when I do this hardware reset, it usually fixes my crashing issue for a while.

Once again the steps are:

Shut off device, make sure it is unplugged
Hold the Power button and home key, until the apple icon appears and then flashes off.
Let the device turn on normally, let go of home key and hold the power button till the apple icon appears, and let it boot up normally.
Test the application, this may or may not work. But its def worth a try.
