Why can't I set the automatic Date & Time?

Asked: Jun 25 2015 | 10:02 am EDT 25835 Views 2 Answers View Best Answer

I've been getting many "Cannot Verify Server Identity" messages recently, making it impossible to use my iPod touch's internet. I learned that setting the Date & Time to "Set Automatically" may fix this, but when I try to go to Date & Time and press Set Automatically, it doesn't work; the loading circle spins perpetually. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Reboot the device and try again or restore the device to its native state and set it back up again.

I had that same issue for a while as suggested try the reboots, also check your internet connection as well.
