Here’s how you can fix app store down after updating to iOS 12 in iPhone/iPad
There are so many reasons which can affect your App Store. Let’s see how you can fix this.
Fix 1: Check Network Connection
When you iPhone is connected to poor internet connection or iPhone isn’t connected to any network then probably you will see “cannot connect to app store” error. Therefore, at the very first instance when you encounter App Store down on iPhone/iPad, check your internet connection.
Go to Settings and then check in the Wi-Fi or Cellular Data section. If you have turned off cellular data for iTunes and App Store, enable it from the Settings and then tap iTunes and App Store.
Fix 2: Reset Network Settings
If you have a robust internet connection and still facing App Store down in iOS 12, then try this tip. Resetting Network Settings is found to be the best solution for internet related errors.
Step 1: In the Home Screen, tap “Settings”.
Step 2: There, click on “General” and open “Reset”.
Step 3: Finally, hit the “Reset Network Settings”.
All the Wi-Fi, VPN and APN will be reset by this action, and you have to reconnect by entering the passcode again.
Fix 3: Restart your iPhone
I would like to suggest; you must restart iPhone once in a week. Because it will clear out some load and will free up some space so that it can function properly and you don’t have to face such weird situations.
- For iPhone X:
Press and hold the Power button and Volume Down button and slide the slider to shut down it. Press Side/Power button to turn on.
- For iPhone 6/7/8:
Press and hold the side button and slide the slider to turn off the iPhone.

Another thing causing the improper behavior of the App Store can be stored. If you are running out of storage, you can’t download applications from the app store. Here’s how you can check the storage on iPhone/iPad.
Step 1: Open “Settings” and tap “General”.
Step 2: Locate About and check storage.
Fix 5: Clear Cache on App Store
Continues use of application creates additional files which we identify as a cache. You must delete cache, and I bet you will be amazed how much storage is consumed by cache if you are doing it for the first time. It is very simple to clear cache on the app store, simple you have to launch the app store and then tap 10 times on bottom tabs such as Today, Games, Updates, Apps and Search.
