    Default App Store Downloads Slow

    So recently when I go to download any app from the app store on my iPhone 5 it takes forever to download that I typically turn wifi off and download over LTE. When I'm browsing the web everything loads fine-when I use the Speed Test app speeds are fine. When I use other devices; a Macbook Pro and iPad 2, things download no problem. Even when I download an universal App it downloads so much quicker on my iPad. I have tried reseting my network settings on my iPhone and still run into the same issue. I have an Airport Extreme and Comcast internet. I haven't had a chance to try downloading apps on other networks because the other networks I typically use are already extremely slow. Was hoping someone had some advice to help fix the problem. Thanks in advance!

    Try backing up your device either via iCloud or iTunes and then connect it to your computer and restore it as a new device via iTunes. I, too, have an iPhone 5 but I'm not having any issues with downloading items from the App Store.
