Best Fixes for ‘Cannot Connect to iTunes Store’ Errors

Looks like changing DNS to 8. It then asked me to verify accoun info. Not sure if the date thing worked. Thank you for posting this! I have been unable to connect to the itunes stores on any apple device phone, home computer since purchasing a new ipad mini and setting it up.

What worked for me was downloading 2 purchased apps. Setting the time and cold boot did it for me. Thank you for creating this list of solutions. I will, definitely, save them for future reference. I had to come to this site in order to do some iPhone testing for my job. Why do you put up with this crap? I used the DNS settings — it worked first time — brilliant. Thank you so much. I have saved your website!!!.

And i was so skeptical telling myself in my head that it wont work… i did that, the ipad crashed, restarted…and viollaaa!! Awesome man, super awesome!! Neither my ipad nor my iphone would connect to Itunes to update apps.

That is when I figured the one thing they had in common was my account. I checked my account and discovered my visa card on recored was not current. The issuing bank had recently disabled the old card for security breach reasons and issued me a new card. I had not yet updated that info on my account at Itunes Store. I updated the card and I am up and going again.

I tried both methods and neither worked, so I put my IP address back to normal and put the date on automatic. I then thought it could be too many open programmes like in a windows set up on a computer so I went through the usual apps that automatically open, i. I then went back to download a new app and hey presto it worked. So not sure what the bug is there, but I got what I was after in the end. I was unable to access the Itunes store with my Iphone 5 after updating to ios7.

I tried a number of fixes that I found on the apple help site and nothing worked. I tried the first fix listed above changing DNS to 8. Best solution for me has been to ditch my iPad and go with a Surface. This emperor has no clothes. I just purchased an iPad Air and an iPhone 5S within days of each other. Bottom line is that I have tried all of the tips and tricks above, and everything on the Apple web page with absolutely no luck.

Prior to switching over i had no issues now neither of my devices can connect to the iTunes Store. Both devices surf the web effortlessly and connect to my reset and restarted and rebooted WiFi connection without any problem.

Turning off WiFi and trying to use the cellular connection has also failed. Apple tells me that I have a rather unfortunate issue that they have no solution for and they cannot fix!!! Not sure which fix finally worked — we had to do all — but we finally got in.

This fixed Newsstand on iOS 7 for iPad for me. My expensive-ass subscriptions are actually downloading! Thanks, this worked on my iPhone 5: Closing all apps 2. Changing date manual a year ahead 4. Hard reset on phone 5. Changing DNS and date back to normal 6. Login to App Store The strange thing is that all the time it worked on my iPad with identical settings.

I have tried changing the date, hard reset, logging out then logging back in, and still nothing! Posted on Mar 20, 1: Mar 20, 2: When you sign out of the iTunes and App stores try not signing back in to it right after, power cycle your iPad then launch the App Store and see if it connects if it does then sign back in and see if it occurs again.

Jun 26, 9: Switch the Set Automatically option to Off, then set the date one year ahead. Try to open the App Store again, and if you get another error message, go back and correct the date by switching Set Automatically back to On. Now you should be able to connect with no problems. Try this first - Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.

Set the date ahead by about a year. Then see if you can connect to the store. Mar 20, 3: I just got off the phone with Apple and it seems to be a hardware issue: At least it's still under warranty. May 9, 5: Do you use a VPN? No problem getting into the App Store and getting mail updates after that.

Jun 1, 9: Jul 7, 4: Jul 20, 7: This can also happen if there is an app update that was left pending. You can see this if you go to updates and there is an App where the progress bar is not moving. When this happens the best solution is to find the App on your device outside of the App store app and tap on the icon. This will induce the app to continue the download. After the App finishes loading, you should have full access to the App Store once again.
