FaceTime icon Missing on iPhone or iPad (iOS 17): Here’s Fix

🗓️ November 24, 2023 By ✍️ Jaysukh patel

The FaceTime icon is missing, or the FaceTime option is unavailable in settings for iPhone and iPad. The main reason is to be restrictions. It’s a privacy-protected feature of the iOS device where iOS users can block specific items, hide apps on the home screen of online constraint websites, and stop many features for their matter.

We use Facetime and iMessage on iPhones almost daily than other apps after Whatsapp and Facebook. So, without both apps, the iPhone seems like a dead device. So think more. If the FaceTime app icon is not showing up on your iPhone at that time, you might be experiencing discomfort cause you cannot do FaceTime audio or video calls. So still, if you pass this issue, it means the FaceTime option is not available on the settings iPhone (latest iOS); you must try here given clues.
