    My autistic son was playing with my iPad and has somehow hidden a lot of my apps. I can find them if I do a search for them, but they no longer show up on the screen. How can I fix this?

    Thanks,
    Sean

    I just checked the restrictions, the setting is not set to "on".

    Have you swiped all the screens to see of he put it on the last page? Also, do you have folders that maybe he put it in?

    Also...check to see if your guided access is set for on as well.

    Settings/general/accessibility/guided access.

    Thank you SKIMONKEY! He created a folder an had a bunch of the apps in it. He had the one folder on a page all by itself, I didn't realize there was an additional page beyond that one that had the balance of the missing apps. Thanks!

    Ahh....great to hear that we solved it! When I first bought my iPad, I didn't realize all the pages myself!

    Glad to hear you got it working! :)
