This is not necessarily deals related but I have had this issue for a few weeks and couldn’t find a solution to it until today. Hopefully, this helps someone else. Saving time is just as much a bargain as saving money, right?
When trying to go to “Updates” in the Apple Stores on my iPhone, I kept getting a Cannot Connect to the iTunes Store error message. I was connected to the internet, had my correct password, etc. I thought this was very strange because I could individually update apps as another app had prompted me to update their app later that day. Individually I could update and I was also able to install any new apps. At this point, if I wanted to update any apps I would have to individually do them. Ouch!
I found a VERY simple solution today. It’s one I would have never thought of but found it hidden in a post in the Apple forums. Go to Settings>General>Date & Time. Change the date to a year ahead. Then go back to the App Store and click on the Updates tab. Go back to Settings>General>Date & Time and set the time to the current time. Head back to the App Store and go to the Updates tab. Voila, it’s fixed!
Since it’s been a few weeks of no updates for apps for me, it’s going to take a little while to update all!
