    Hey there everyone,

    Does anyone know how to restore, or return to normal the multitasking bar.

    I had the Apple apps, like photos, camera, mail on the multitasking bar. A little person in the household was able to delete them. Now I wonder is there a way to restore them, without having to use the backup from iTunes.

    I can still get them from double tapping the home button, to bring up the frequently used apps, though the apps can no longer been seen on any screen.

    Any help much appreciated, ios 6.1 on ipad 2.
    Cheers

    Someone may have dragged some of the apps together to create a folder or placed them on different screens. Check for folders and swipe through the screens, I bet they're still there somewhere.

    I agree with ardchoille. The apps you mentioned can't be deleted. They have to be somewhere on your iPad.

    WOW, amazing what you can find when you really look.

    The adorable little munchkin moved them to a new screen, at the very end. I only have two apps down that way, so didn't think there could be more.

    THANK YOU for making me lo further.

    Found them and happy out now.
    Have a great one

    If that fails, you can go into Settings>General>Usage, the missing apps should be in the list of installed apps. The stock apps cannot be deleted from your iPad, just hidden.

    I find myself a little confused (mostly over your terminology). So, apologies if I sound obnoxious while trying to figure this out.

    My main confusion stems from your use of the phrases "multitasking bar" and "to bring up frequently used apps" - as those are the same thing. The doubleclick of the Home button brings up the multitasker, which is a list of your used apps.

    So, could you mean the dock is missing your apps? The dock is the line on the bottom that stays the same even when you swipe to turn the pages. If the apps are missing from there, it's a matter of finding where those apps are on your iPad and putting them back on that dock.

    We know that your iPad still has those apps installed because (1) you can't delete the stock apps and (2) you say they can be opened from the multi-task bar. So, now you just have to figure out where they are.

    All I can suggest is that you search every page on the iPad, looking for those apps. They could be on any page (even in a folder) - it's just a matter of finding them.

    EDIT TO ADD: Dang, I type s-l-o-w!!! :D

    The best to you,

    Hello Mickey,
    YES, you are right, I meant the DOCK bar. Ah well, i suppose i can't even be right about that bit, then i do need help, lol.

    All good, found them, thanks to you all for being informative - sometimes i wish i had the skill of a 2.5 year old.

    I think she knows more than me about the ipad. Have a great day
    Thanks to you all on forums.
    Cheers

    Yep, as others have stated, you can't delete stock apps. I'm glad you got that issue sorted! It's amazing what children can accomplish just by accident :)
