Quick Fix: Cannot Connect To App Store iOS 12 iPhone

By MiniCreo, on Sep. 05, 2018, to iOS 12 Problems |


Symptom: I updated my iPhone 6s plus to iOS 12 beta couple days ago. Everything seems working fine until I am not able to connect to App Store today. Tried all the guidelines given on Apple website (signing in again, time zone check, network connection check etc etc) but in no vail. Does anyone has the same iOS 12 problem here?

Diagnosis: At times you may want to download/update an app urgently. It would be a nightmare if at this moment, you cannot connect your iPhone or iPad to App Store. Probably you will see a "Cannot connect to iTunes Store" alert message or something similar. Otherwise, the App Store in iOS 12 may also not load anything at all, or unexpectedly stop in the middle of downloading content. Follow this iOS 12 problem troubleshooting article to find a solution.

Part 2: Check App Store System Status

Since App Store relies on Apple's remote server, it may went down at rare times. Apple has a dedicated webpage set up so you can check the status of the App Store and their other services. You can give a check to see if it's a massive scale of service down on App Store on this page.
