Hi speedybobbie,



When troubleshooting iTunes & App Store connection issues, the following articles provide the best information:


First, try signing out of your account in Settings > iTunes & App Stores. Once signed out, go ahead and sign back in.


iOS: Changing the signed-in iTunes Store Apple ID account



If the above did not resolve your issue, refer to the following:


Can't connect to the iTunes Store



If you haven't been able to connect to the iTunes Store:


- Make sure that your iOS software is up to date by connecting your iOS device to iTunes and clicking on Check for Update in your device's Summary page in iTunes.


- Check and verify that you are in range of a Wi-Fi router or base station. If you are on a 3G capable device, make sure that cellular data is turned on from Settings > General > Cellular.


- Check to make sure you have an active internet connection. You can check the User Guide for your device for help with connecting to the internet.


- Check to make sure other devices (portable computers, for example) are able to connect to the Wi-Fi network and access the internet.


- Try resetting (turning off and then on again) your Wi-Fi router


- If the issue still persists see, iOS: Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connectionsoriOS: Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connections.

Best Fixes for ‘Cannot Connect to iTunes Store’ Errors

Try this first - Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.


This works for some users. Not sure why.

Go to Settings>General>Date and Time> Set Automatically>Off. Set the date ahead by about a year.Then see if you can connect to the store.


 Cheers, Tom
