How to fix ‘Unable to Update or Download Apps in iOS8’ Problem

iOS8 has many bugs and glitches. Some of them have been addressed by Apple with two quick fix updates of iOS 8.01 and 8.02. However, there are many bugs which are yet to be fixed.

One of the most annoying of them is – “Unable to download new apps or update existing app“.

Why is it so annoying?

Because your existing apps do not work smoothly in iOS8. They frequently crash. And thus, either you need to update your app to the latest iOS8 compatible version, or download a newer version. But since the iOS8 launch, for many unfortunate users (one of them is me), it has been nearly impossible to do that due to this update/download glitch.

How to fix this problem?

There are two ways you can fix this problem. One is to wait for Apple to acknowledge this problem and fix it for you, or be a DIY individual and go through the solution given below which is simple to use, and haven been tested to work effectively.

Solution: Update or Download your Apps with the help of iTunes.

Make sure that you have installed the latest version of iTunes in your computer. Connect your iPhone with computer and open iTunes.

Step 1: Authorize your computer

Go to menu-> Store, click on – Authorize this computer and then login with your Apple ID (same login ID of your iPhone).

Step 2: Enable ‘Automatically Install New Apps’

Go to iPhone settings (at top right side), go to Apps (which you may find after summary and info at iPhone menu), scroll down to find automatically install new apps, check it, then click apply.

Step 3: Download Apps

Go to iTunes Store (at top right side), login with your Apple ID (same login ID of your iPhone). Search your apps (which you want to update or install) and download.

Step 4: Update or Install your Apps

Once download is complete, again go to iPhone settings, go to Apps, on left column you will see your downloaded apps, click update or install button next to it and then click Apply.

So far, this is the only way  for downloading or updating your apps in iOS8 until Apple fixes this problem.

Please feel free to ask any question regarding this particular issue or even any other technical problem that’s preventing you from maximizing the full use of your device.
