    To remove age restrictions on iPad 3:

    Go to Settings > General > Restrictions > (enter passcode) > Allowed Content: Apps> Allow All Apps

    This will enable and show all your apps that you purchased before but does not show on your ipad.

    Netflix app has dissapeared. Tried their customer support and they exhausted all avenues. Tried everything here and still not showing up. I can see it in settings but can't do anything to it. When I go to the app store the only option I have is to 'open' but nothing happens when the button is pressed.

    Here is what finally worked for me.   Turn on restrictions and set installing and deleting apps restrictions to On. I went ahead and turned all the restrictions to On. Then turn the iPad off and back on again and it downloaded and installed the apps from iTunes.   As long as I had the big button at the top set to disable restrictions, it would not work.  Once I set it to enable restrictions and then turned them all on, it worked.

    Just picked up the same problem.  Moved an app to my ipad home page and the app that was in the top left corner diappeared - it's not on any other pages; it's still listed as an app present on the ipad - but I cant't run it or delete it. Tried re-setting/power off but to no avail.  Problem is - it's my on-line banking app so I need it.

     

    I've not synced with iTunes for a while so I don't have a backup I can use.  HELP!

    I couldn't sort the problem in the end so called up Apple who were really helpful. They went through backing everything up, in order to restore and start again but luckily after backing up it popped up in a menu somewhere on iTunes and I could just transfer it back onto my iPad.

    Thanks for the encouraging comments.  I'll get onto Apple tomorrow and feed back the results

    I'm having this issue and nothing seems to be working, my Ipad have always been set on allow all apps so restriction can't be the problem, I even rechecked to make sure. I've also tried all the various solutions suggested from this thread but no luck.

    Dont know if this helps, but I had this problem on my iPad2. I fixed my issue by going into settings>general>restrictions>disable restrictions. Then I exited and checked for the missing apps, & they all came back. Hope this helps
