I was attempting g to move an app from one screen to another. In doing so I lost the app entirely from all screens. When I do a search the app can be opened. How do I recover the app's icon to my phone screen?

Do you have any folders you might have accidentally dropped the app into? I've done this before and only found the missing app after searching my folders. Other than that, try a hard reset by holding down the home and power buttons until the Apple logo appears.

From the home screen swipe to the right and enter the app's name in the search bar at the top and then hit the search button at the bottom right corner. It will show you if the app is still installed and the name of the folder it's in. If it's not there you can download it from the App Store again if it's still available.

Or hold the power and down volume button if it's a newer iPhone
