NOTES have disappeared entirely from my iPhone — the icon AND the (some important) info which I had put there for “safe keeping” and “future reference”! Can it be retrieved?
The good news is that you can’t delete Notes from your phone. You may have accidentally moved it to another page as we explained in a previous article.
If you you can’t find it on another page, you can reset your home screen to bring back notes.
Go to Settings and choose General
Then select Reset.
Then tap Reset Home Screen Layout.
Make sure to not to tap something else and accidentally reset your whole phone. Once the reset is finished, you should be able to see notes again.
