... Think this started from when the 6.0.0 upgrade occurred but have finally got round to getting a solution for this.


Can search the iPad2 and display it that way but can't seem to re-add the icon. Thought I might of accidentally deleted it on my iPhone it's one of those icons Apple have been selective with and won't allow you to delete.


Searched google and found some people with the same problem. Looks like in some cases opening the task manager and closing the photos app if it's running in the background and doing a power cycle can solve some instances of the issue.


Help appreciated.

iPad 2, iOS 6.0.2
