I do not seem to have Safari on my iPhone 4. I also do not seem to have iTunes installed, or any access to iTunes. I have tried resetting my home-screen layout, but Safari and itunes still are not there.

I have tried to download the Safari install file to my PC, hoping to somehow transfer it to my iPhone. But iTunes will not give up the file because I do not have iOS installed on the PC.

Any ideas, please?

  • What iOS? Is it Jailbroken? What version iTunes? – Tetsujin Aug 11 '15 at 11:49

    Is Safari disabled in Settings > General > Restrictions ? osxdaily.com/2011/11/01/… – Graham Miln Aug 11 '15 at 12:00
  • Graham Miln, thank you very much! Yes, that was exactly the problem. I had never changed any of the Restrictions settings myself, so I didn't even know to look there. I am obviously very ignorant of how to use this phone! And I'm very grateful for your help. Thank you. – Alex Aug 11 '15 at 17:51

As @Graham Miln suggested, it is most likely set this way in restrictions, assuming your phone isn't jail broken. Go to Settings -> General -> Restrictions and enable safari.

There is no way to install or uninstall Safari on an iOS device - it is a part of the operating system, nor is it possible to "have iOS installed on the PC"
