Can't connect to the App Store to download apps on your i Phone or i Pad?
Or are you having problems downloading an app or an update to an app? But more happily, there are plenty of simple solutions you can try.
While using your mobile network connection shouldn't stop you from accessing the App Store entirely, if your i Phone is set to only download apps over Wi Fi you won't be able to download apps over a 3G/4G connection.
Try connecting to a reliable Wi Fi network and see if this allows downloads to go ahead.
In the section headed 'Use mobile data for', make sure the slider beside App Store is set to on (green).You can see the old flat design and dark font that’s an unwelcome legacy from the older version above.It’s the same for in-app purchases, too, where the new design is just icing on the crunky old layout.While we're on this topic, there is a separate option that dictates whether your device can automatically download app updates as soon as they appear on the App Store, as long as your i Phone is connected to the internet via Wi Fi.This could be a handy setting if you are frequently finding apps aren't working because they need to be updated.
