My camera app is missing on both my phone and my iPad and after trying all the suggested fixes found online to no avail I now feel the need to get help with my specific case.
The app is missing (can't be found in a search) and it's not deactivated in Restrictions, in fact, the camera and FaceTime options are grayed out/disabled when I go to Restrictions. - restrictions passcode not set
I have tried resetting home screen layout and then all settings when that didn't work. I had an update to install so I installed that update, to no avail.
I haven't tried resetting the entire device yet mainly due to I don't see that helping either as this is happening on multiple devices.
As my iPhone is the camera that I usually use, this is really frustrating and especially as I noticed this during my daughters very first football practice.. Does anyone have any ideas on that the problem is and how I can fix it?
As suggested by @bassplayer7 I reset one of my devices without restoring it from backup and that brought the camera app back. He suggested I reset it again after that and restored it from backup to se if that fixed the issue, however, I am keeping it this way. Having a freshly formatted phone was really great.
I am however going to look into the actual issue on my iPad and try to find a fix for everyone else having this issue. Resetting should not and can not be the only solution to this problem.
