until then, a simple linear shift of variables helps:
f[x_] = (1 - Sin[x])^(1/4);
approx = NIntegrate[f[x], {x, 0, Pi/2, 2*Pi}, WorkingPrecision -> 32]
inexact = Integrate[f[x], {x, 0, Pi/2, 2*Pi}]

as an alternative to FullSimplify, use TrigToExp:
F[z_] = Simplify[Integrate[TrigToExp[f[x + Pi/2]], {x, -Pi/2, z - Pi/2}]]
z*((1/z)*(4*I - 4*(1 + I)^(3/2)*Hypergeometric2F1[-(1/4), 1/2, 3/4, -I]) +
(2*2^(3/4)*((I*(-I + E^(I*z))^2)/E^(I*z))^(1/4)*(-1 - I*E^(I*z) +
2*Sqrt[1 + I*E^(I*z)]*Hypergeometric2F1[-(1/4), 1/2, 3/4, (-I)*E^(I*z)]))/
((-I + E^(I*z))*z))
Plot[Chop[F[z]], {z, 0, 2*Pi}]
