The App store has not updated(show new apps) since October16. I have an Ipad2 still on software 5.1.5(too nervous so I have not updated). When I go into the app store and tap on new releases it always would show the current day...until 4 days ago. I tried soft and hard reboots...nothing works.I called Apple with no help.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

    You need to update your iOS.


    For newer iPads, the current iOS is 7.0.2. The Settings>General>Software Update only appears if you have iOS 5.0 or higher currently installed.


    iOS 5: Updating your device to iOS 5 or Later



    How to install iOS 6



    iOS: How to update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch



    If you are currently running an iOS lower than 5.0, connect the iPad to the computer, open iTunes. Then select the iPad under the Devices heading on the left, click on the Summary tab and then click on Check for Update.


    Tip - If connected to your computer, you may need to disable your firewall and anitvirus software temporarily.  Then download and install the iOS update. Be sure and backup your iPad before the iOS update. After you update an iPad (except iPad 1) to iOS 6.x, the next update can be installed via wifi (i.e., not connected to your computer).


    Tip 2 - If you're updating via wifi, place your iPad close to your router to preclude getting a corrupted download.

    I do not want to update.I want to leave it on 5.1.1. . I just want to know what the problem is with the Apple App store suddenly not showing new apps since October 16. Updating the software should have nothing to do with the problem.

    I appreciate you helping but my question was not how to update my Ipad it is why is the App store not showing new apps daily like it always has until 4 days ago. i cant be the only one with this happening to.

    I am having the exact same problem as Olifromny -- iPad 2, ios 5.1.1 -- new releases in app store update every 4th day since Oct 16. New releases used to update daily. So far, no solution from tech support. I am not looking to update ios on this iPad. Everything else works fine.

    To JoAnnC....It took me a few days but I now realize that it is updating every 4th day also. At least now you know you are not alone with this problem. Olifromny
