With that said, as good as iOS 11 is and feels, it still has a number of niggles, such as the annoying “Cannot connect to App Store” error message being presented when the App Store launches. 


As is usually the case where error messages are concerned, it is actually possible to get around this niggling issue with a slight hack until Apple puts a more permanent and robust fix in place. 

Without further ado, we are going to jump right in and take a look at exactly how to go about doing this.




Step 1: Launch the App Store on the device and make sure that you are sitting in the first Today tab. At the top left of the view, you will see that the interface shows a date. Make a note of this date.

Step 4: Launch the App Store and leave it on-screen for approximately thirty-seconds. 

You can now head back into Settings and re-enable the Set Automatically feature to ensure that the device automatically pulls in the current date and time.

Step 5: Double tap the Home button to invoke the App Switcher, and swipe up on the App Store to kill it from the background. Relaunch the App Store from the Home screen as per normal process.

You will now see that everything works as expected without any error messages being produced.
