Several iPad users who recently updated their device to iOS 10 and iOS 10.3.2 complained that they are regularly experiencing some App Store problems in their device. Some users complained that they were unable to download or update apps through the App Store while others stated that they were not even able to access the App Store.
“App Store not working” and “unable to download or update apps via App Store” issues are common iPad problems and it usually includes users who have not updated their device to the latest available iOS version. If you were facing any such issues too, below is how to fix App Store issues in an iPad.
Check your Network Connection
If you keep on receiving the “Cannot Connect To App Store” error message when you are trying to access App Store on your iPad, check whether your internet connection is stable or not. Use a high-speed internet connection and check whether you are able to access the App Store. It is best to use a Wi-Fi connection instead of relying on mobile data.
Restart your iPad
In some cases, just a simple restart of your device might help you solve the issue. So, gently press the Power button of your iPad and then slide to switch the device off. However, if your App Store is getting stuck regularly, then it is best to do a force restart. For that, simultaneously press and hold the Power and Home buttons of your device, wait for a couple of minutes, and then turn on your iPad to check whether the issue is resolved.
Free up Storage on your iPad
If you are an iPad user who can still access the App Store but cannot update or download the apps, then the first thing you should check is whether you have sufficient storage space in the internal memory of your device. Go to the Settings menu of your iPad, select General followed by Storage & iCloud Storage, and then open Manage Storage (Storage) to check the available storage space in your device. If the storage space is too low, freeing up some space will help you fix the issue.
Users who are still not able to fix the issues after performing all these troubleshooting steps should seek the help of an expert iPad repair technician for technical assistance.
