  1. Hello. What I did was to disconnect my VPN. After disconnecting my VPN, I could connect to the App Store. I later switched the VPN back on and the App Store still worked.

  2. Oh my god thank you so much. My iPad was so old i was sure that all hope was lost, but option one worked. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I availed of Solutions No. 2 and 3 but I had to wait for another day before my iPad finally was able to access the App Store again.

  4. Nice one.
    I hadn’t done a full restart (Solution No.3) in over a year!
    It worked perfectly – Thanks very much.

  5. I turned off Set Automatically, waited a few seconds and turned it back on and voilà! Google and Technobezz saved the day, thank you.

  6. Still not working on my iPad. I can however download the App from my iPhone and it will sinc the App with iPad. Very odd.

  7. Same here, tried all options without success…. this started to happen with the latest ios update too….. getting to the point where I might kiss Apple goodbye….. Hello Android

  8. I can connect but cannot download even the free apps. on my iphone 6, iPad and iPad Pro.
    I have Netflix on my iPad but I continue to see “title can not be loaded” error messages.
    I have tried the suggestion above with no results.

    help?

    1. You don’t have any Wi-Fi issues at the moment? If not, restart your device, check for software updates. Also, try to play another movie or a TV show. If it works fine, report a problem for a specific video to Netflix. To do this, you need to open Viewing activity. You will find “Report a problem” there. Let’ me know if you need additional assistance. Good luck 🙂

  9. Yeah…not a one of those fixes worked for my iPad. Ive been unable to connect for 4 months…? Even Apple online wasn’t able to fix it…
