    Doesn't mean AppStore is not blocked.
    Why the apple apps store would be blocked as yhe sam set up on android CAN HAVE access to its store?

    I should have also mention in my first post that the phone is on airplane while on free wifi which does not required a password.
    Make me think it's a limitation of the iPhone.

    Last night I used a secured wifi from my android work phone then I could access the apple apps store.
    I believe that if your iPhone is on airplane mode, you cannot access wifi. Try turning off airplane mode, and then connecting to the app store.

    I don't believe that to be true. I just turned airplane mode on on my iPhone 6s and tried to connect to Safari. Here's the error message I got:

    Correct, because it's in airplane mode. You stated that your phone was in airplane mode. If this is the case, then your wifi and date are turned off.

    From https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204234

    When Airplane Mode is on, you'll see in the status bar of your screen or on your watch face. In Airplane Mode, these wireless features are turned off:
    Cellular (voice and data)
    Wi-Fi
    Bluetooth

    When in airplane mode, you can enable wifi. But it's true it gets disabled when turning Airplane mode on.

    That leads me even more to believe that it was something with the connection you were on. Either they set up their connection to block the appstore, or it had something else really funky going on with it, maybe a problem somewhere in the DNS. Its very rare, but I have seen things like that happen.

    There's no limitation as you think. You can surf and download apps when you get connected to the Internet. Secure, unsecure doesn't matter.

    I don't think it was blocked just for apple as my work android phone was working just fine with the same setup

    No problem. It is my second iPhone, the first one was a 3gs. So everything happening on it, I am a novice, I have to learn almost everything

    Yeah, I was able to surf just not being able to access the apps store on that network
