    5 ways to fix iPhone 6 won't download or update apps

    Solution No.1: Restart your iPhone

    To do this, press and hold the sleep/wake button. Move the slider, and turn off your device. Again, press and hold the sleep/wake button to turn it back on. Visit the App Store and see if you can download or update the apps.

    Solution No.2: Sign out from the App Store

    This can help as well, and here is what you should do:

    • Go to Settings
    • Click on iTunes and App Store
    • Tap on your Apple ID, and sign out.
    • Go to the App Store again and sign in.

    Solution No.3: Wi-Fi Settings

    Try this: navigate to Settings, and click on Wi-Fi. Find your network, and click on the icon right next to it. Tap on Renew Lease. Go back to the App Store, and see if there is any difference.

    Solution No.4: Update iOS

    You can update the software wirelessly. Connect to the Wi-Fi network, and connect your iPhone 6 to a power source. Go to Settings, tap on General, and tap on Software Update. Next, tap Download and install.

    Solution No.5: Reset all settings

    If you choose to reset all settings, all your data and applications will be there, but settings you have adjusted according to your needs will be deleted. Here is what you need to do:

    • Go to Settings
    • Tap General
    • Tap Reset
    • Tap Reset all settings

    What else?

    The above-mentioned solutions usually fix the problem, but if that doesn't happen, you can clear App Store cache and if that doesn't fix the issue, you can erase all content and settings and set up your iPhone as a new device.

    Clear App Store cache

    When the App Store is not working properly, when it is too slow, if you can't update or download apps or if the App Store is not showing any new apps, you may clear the cache. Follow these steps:

    • Open App Store
    • At the bottom of the screen you will see a few buttons so what you need to do is tap on one of the buttons 10 times.

    Factory settings

    If nothing else works, you can erase all content and settings. As you probably already know, before you decide to do this, you need to back up your device. Then, follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings
    • Tap on General
    • Select Reset
    • Tap on Erase all Content and Settings
    • Tap Erase iPhone
    • When the process of resetting is over, you should follow the steps provided, in order to set up your device as new.
