Fix: Cannot connect to iTunes Store in iOS 6

Did you just update to iOS 6 and get the message “Cannot connect to iTunes Store” while opening up the App Store? It seems like this is a common problem for a lot of people. Luckily there is a very easy fix.

To fix your issue you will need to open up Settings. Browse to General, Date and Time, and change set automatically to off. Next set the date at least 1 year ahead of today’s date. Once you do that you can go back and change Set Automatically to the On position.

Now go back into the App Store and the cannot connect error should be resolved. This will also enable you to see Passbook compatible applications if your running iOS 6 and could not see them before. If this still did not fix your problem leave a message bellow and we will help you out

    I had this same issue and just went to the sign in, in the settings section and it worked. When I hit passbook it shows apps but nothing happens I can click the App Store link on the bottom as it takes me to the iTunes Store are those icons when I first tap on passbook suppose to work or is it just a picture of different apps for generalization also when I did your way of advancing the date everything from Verizon to gmail and Facebook saying it could not be recognized and asked if i wanted to cancel???

    I have the same problem and tried the suggested solution. Didn’t work, I still have the same problem. Shouldn’t have update to the new ios. Everything worked fine before.
