    My daughter deleted all of my icons that were on my dock. How do I get the back? It's my safari, mail,etc.

    That's to bad, you could do a restore from iTunes, hopefully you have a current back up

    First she didn't delete them. They are native apps and cannot be deleted.

    So go to Settings/General/Reset/Reset Home Screen Layout and all will be well.

    Second, and this is the nasty bit. She MAY have invoked restrictions, and if so, I hope she can remember the password otherwise you will be doing a Restore to Factory Settings.

    I don't think this is the case though as mail can't be restricted.

    Good luck.

    Or, you can just tap and hold on one icon until they all start to jiggle. Then you can drag any icon (up to six) into the dock, or out of it. That's probably what she did.

    Be careful not to tap the x that appears in the top left corner. That will delete the app.

    As Kevin says, you can't delete the native apps. The x won't even appear on them.


    I really, really hope it's not restrictions.
