Deleted App Store app from iPhone - what happens

Some users have reported accidentally deleting the App Store app from their iPhone and have been curious about the consequences of such an action. However, it is important to note that as of now, it is not possible to delete the App Store app completely. Even if you tap the option to "remove app," the app should still be available in your app library.

To retrieve the App Store app icon if you believe you have deleted it, follow these steps:

  1. Scroll to the very right in your app library.
  2. Search for the App Store app - it should still be available there.
  3. Tap and hold the app icon.
  4. Drag the icon to your home screen to reinstate it.

It's worth mentioning that while the icon on your home screen can be removed by tapping "remove app," the actual App Store app remains in your app library and cannot be permanently deleted.

This oversight can be misleading at first, as users may believe they have removed the app entirely. However, the app icon removal only affects the home screen display. Other non-original Apple apps can be deleted entirely from the app library, but the App Store app is an exception to this rule.

If you ever find yourself in a situation where the App Store app icon is missing from your home screen, simply check your app library for its presence and reposition it to your desired location by dragging it back to the home screen.
