    Hi there and welcome.

    YouTube would have disappeared because as of iOS 6 it is no longer a part of the OS although I have no idea as to why the App Store should have gone.....a search on these forums may assist.

    There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.

    Remember, search is your friend. If you can't find the answer you need and you post a question then give as much info as you can to help members help you i.e. iPad 1 or 2, iOS version and name of app if the problem is with a specific app........and please don't forget to read the rules Forum rules - everybody please read!!

    These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers) HACKING SECTION RULES - please read.

    We also have an app for this forum. The link to download the app is: Discussion Forum for iPad Users for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    You can download the manual for your iPad here http://support.apple.com/manuals/ and in iBooks search for "iPad user guide for" and you will find free comprehensive manuals for both iOS 4 and 5.

    If you have other Apple products or are interested in other Apple kit then why not join our sister forum too at http://www.appleforums.net/

    Hi! Newbie here...

    Hi, and welcome to the forum. Good to "see" you and I hope you enjoy your visits.

    The YouTube app is no longer available on iOS 6. Apple has removed it on that software version so it no longer comes as a stock/default app.

    A lot of people here have had success with the Google YouTube iPhone app (free - and upsizes fine on the iPad) or with the new app Jasmine (that only works on iOS 6). Maybe one of those will help...?

    Thanks guys! Ok, now I know about the YouTube app. As for the AppStore icon, I'm still having issues as it has truly disappeared. It's an ipad2 I'm using and the icon disappeared immediately after the upgrade to ios6. My searches here on the forum have all pointed to doing a full restore,so I'm currently backing up my apps to iTunes on my computer so that I can try that out. It's taking ages as I haves so many purchased apps that I haven't downloaded to iTunes. So hopefully let's see if the restore will make any difference. I just hope I won't regret this. If there are any other suggestions meanwhile, I'm open!

    Hi! Newbie here...

    Take a look in your Settings app. You may have restrictions turned on for the App Store.

    So, go to Settings > General > Restrictions and make sure that you have allowed (the switch in ON) both Installing Apps and Deleting Apps. At least, on my iOS 5.1.1-running iPad, if those two lines are "OFF," my App Store icon disappears.

    So, maybe that's it...?

    Another choice for an app that plays YouTube videos is YouPlayer, it has both a free version and a paid premium version in the App Store. One thing I've noticed about YouPlayer is that it will play videos on the iPad that normally don't play on mobile devices. Like Jasmine, YouPlayer also requires iOS 6.

    Unbelievable, Scifan57. I love you! You've saved me from an unnecessary restore session! My AppStore is back after turning the restrictions on! At least I've backed up my iPad anyway, so wasn't a totally lost effort....my first real iPad issue and its solved! Wow! Is there a like button anywhere? I will click it a hundred times, ha ha!

    That's where another iDevice can come in handy.
