    Are your referring to actual apps missing or safari shortcut icon?

    Two things I can think of here.

    1) If you did an OTA update on your iPad you could do a restore via iTunes on your PC/Mac assuming that you have a back up to restore from.

    2) Open the App Store app on your iPad and choose the purchased tab, you can then find the apps you had previously installed and re-download them.

    All the icons are in the app store app, some in cloud and some just ask to open? I may try the back up on my pc...

    I'm trying to figure out at the moment what you're doing. It seems to me that you're using a more complicated method to get your problem solved.

    First of all: did you reset your iPad after updating? (It's recommended, sometimes it will fix problems.) To reset your device (NOT connected to iTunes): press and hold Home and Power button at the same time until the Apple logo appears.

    Next: you don't need to delete apps in iTunes (computer). If you want to reinstall them: open App Store - Purchased, tap the ones you want to install (with the cloud). Again: no need to connect your iPad to iTunes.
