    After updating my iPad mini, a lot of my icons are this white "bullseye"-looking image; see screenshot:

    How do I get them back???

    Thank you.upload_2014-10-4_11-11-44.png

    Try resetting. It sorts out an amazing number of problems.

    Resetting how? If you mean a hard reboot, I've already tried that. Which way do you mean?

    Thanks,

    These are website links you saved to your homescreen. I had the same problems after updating to iOS 8. What I did was opening each of them by tapping the icon. Except for three links that didn't work any more, the other ones looked as before the update then.

    I had the same problem after resetting. Discovered I can fix all the icons at the same time by turning off the Passcode Lock, reset iPad, turn Passcode back on. Hope that helps someone else.

    @jafromdundee : Thanks! The first method above worked, but with dozens of shortcuts, it was getting tedious. How did you figure that out???

    You are very welcome, JCTC! Glad it worked. I didn't want to go through each and every one to reset (tho I started that way).... kept doing searches and I found that solution and it worked for me. Nice to know it helped someone else, too! I found the idea on another thread here (ipadforums), thread titled: iPad2 very slow after iOS8 install!!

    Ack! When I went to the iPad this morning, the shortcuts were back to a white grid. I rebooted, but no change.

    What now? I hope I won't have to constantly reset!
