Where is the Dropbox app on my iPhone or iPad?

Updated Oct 23, 2023

If you've downloaded the Dropbox mobile app on your iPhone or iPad, but suddenly find that it's missing, it was most likely moved into a folder on your device.

How to find the Dropbox app on your iOS device

To locate the Dropbox app or any other app on your iPhone or iPad, you can use Apple’s Search feature

  1. Swipe down on the home screen, and search for "Dropbox"
  2. You'll be shown a list of results—if the app is in a folder, the name of the folder will appear to the right of the app

Alternatively, the Dropbox app may still be on your device but may have been deleted from your home screen.

To find it, keep swiping from right to left on your home screen until you open the App Library. Scroll through to find Dropbox or type “Dropbox” in the search bar.

Still can’t find the Dropbox app on your iPhone or iPad?

If you’ve followed the steps above and you still can’t find the Dropbox app on your iPhone or iPad, it may have somehow been deleted.

Dropbox is a cloud service, meaning that all of your files will still be there when you reinstall the mobile app and log in. Learn how to reinstall the Dropbox iOS app.
