    Can't download "Find My iPhone" app on iPad
    I accidentally deleted the Find My iPhone app on my iPad. I can't find the Apple version using the App Store icon. It shows up when I use Safari to get into their App Store, but the Get button in grayed out. What's wrong? I have a 6th-generation iPad, running IOS 13.3.1.

    Apps that are built into iOS cannot be deleted. Are you sure you deleted the right app? The only way to restore the built-in apps is to do a restore of the OS.

    As said this app is a native app so technically it should be impossible to delete. In the current iOS and iPad OS it is just called "Find My" because it includes find my friends as well as devices. If you do a search for Find My on your device and get no results I hope you have backups, either to iCloud or a computer because the only way I can think of to get it back will be to"restore" a backup to your device. This is simple and safe but you will loose any changes made since the backup and depending on if you opted for an encrypted backup to save passwords and settings you may also loose your WiFi, Bluetooth and app settings.

    Great, that's an easy fix. Still bear in mind what I said, do backup and if you want to save your settings and passwords consider an encrypted backup either to your computer or iCloud. If you want any help on that don't hesitate to ask on this thread.
