The iPhone comes with an App Library feature that shows you all your installed apps in folders grouped by their categories.If you've removed Safari from your Home screen, you can look in your iPhone's app library and add it from there.

If the "Add to Home Screen" button is missing from the menu, you can also drag the Safari app to your Home screen.

2. Add Safari from Spotlight Search

Another way to add the Safari app to your home screen is to search for it using Spotlight.This feature lets you find apps, settings, contacts and more.
