Chapter in this post:
If you install an iOS app on your Apple iPhone, it may not be automatically displayed on the start screen or home screen. This means the display that appears when you wipe away the lock screen and unlock the app overview. In this guide you will find out how to add an app shortcut to the home screen. Overall, there are two ways of doing this: a manual one after the installation and an automatic one as a setting before the installation.
If you have an app from the Apple App Store installed on your iPhone, it may not automatically appear on the home screen. To find them, simply swipe all home screens with their app overviews to the left. At the end you will then reach the app media library. The installed app is displayed here along with all other programs on the smartphone, probably in the "Recently added" overview.
If you hold your finger on the app symbol, a menu will appear. You can use its "To the home screen" item to place the app on the home screen. You can also ignore the menu and drag the app icon to the left. This transports it to the last home screen. If you want to place it further to the front or to the left, simply pull it in that direction.
And here are the instructions again in a nutshell:
If you are setting up a new iPhone, installing several apps or just generally don't want to go the detour described above, there is also an overall solution for the problem. You don't have to bring each app individually from the app media library to the home screen, you can also set newly installed programs to land there directly. To do this, just proceed like this:
If you want to undo this setting, call up this menu in the settings again and check the box next to "App library only". Then the automatic placing of apps on the iPhone's home screen is deactivated.
