i have deleted the settings icon from my iphone 5. It is still there when I double click the home button. How can I get the icon back?

    It is impossible to delete the settings icon. You have moved it to another page of the Home screen or into a folder.

     

    If you can't find it launch Settings from Search, then General/Reset - Reset home screen layout

    You've put it into a folder, or on another hom page.  Keep looking.  It's impossible to delete a pre-installed app.

     

    Or, try Settings > General > Reset > Reset Home Screen Layout

    You can't delete it. Press the home button to get to the search page, search for settings, then open it and go to general, reset, reset home screen layout. That should return it.
