    My apologies I didn't notice this was a iPad question.
    Hope someone else can help you with this.

    First thing to try is restart it.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Is it safe to assume you're actually connected to a wi-fi router? I know you said your internet was working - but that could be via cell data - assuming you have that. Can you take a snapshot of your screen and post? I've never heard of an IOS icon disappearing like that. You could try the hard reset.
