Hey Sarah,

How do I find the Health app to reinstall it? It's just gone! Also, is the app available on my ipad or laptop?

Sincerely,

Lost my health

Dear Lost,

The Health app is not among the Apple stock apps that you are able to delete. To locate it on your iPhone, swipe down from the center of your Home screen to open Spotlight and type in Health. The name of the folder it's in will be listed next to the app icon in the search results. If no folder name is listed in the results, the Health app is on one of your Home screens, not in a folder.  The Health app is only available on the iPhone and iPod Touch.
