    Angry Why am I unable to download any apps from the App Store?

    Why can't I download any app from the App Store while connected to a wifi network? I can still surf the web but I don't get the logic behind the App Store not able to download any app. It's kinda irritating and getting on my nerves now.Click image for larger version.

    I know that the newest update was sent to Apple for approval a few days ago. Maybe it's unavailable because the newer version is being put in place or something. Give it time and try again later.

    If you're unable to download "any" apps like you stated in your post, try one or all of the following:

    1. Reboot your device
    2. Make sure you are logged in to the iTunes & Apple Store.
    3. Go to Settings - General - Reset and then select "Reset Network Settings".
    4. Make sure your account information is up to date or that you have enough funds left on your gift card, if applicable.

    Tried all of the above, still can't download! Did I mention that I can still download apps on my 3G network but not on wifi. I just don't get it!

    Is there a firewall or router setting in place that at prevent you from downloading from the App Store?

    Try resetting your wifi router, maybe change the security type, change password on it. Also try downloading using someone else's wifi.

    I had a similar issue, but it was regarding a purchase. Easiest thing to do was to initiate a chat session with someone from Apple, turned out to be a security setting on my iTunes account that needed to be updated.

    This should not be the solution but give it a try:

    Open your browser, go to your router (something like 192.168.100.1), if prompted, log in the router, find the settings for DNS servers and change it to 8.8.8.8.

    If this doesn't do the trick as well, make sure your router is not connected to VPN.

    Sign out of the App Store. Then do a hard reset.
    Hold the top or side power/sleep button and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears, then release.
    Then sign back in to the App Store.
    If that doesn't work, call Apple Support.

    Can you download apps on an other wifi? Maybe at friends/work/school?
