But with the passage of time I came across “Cannot Connect to App Store” error while accessing App Store for downloading applications. I was really upset and browsed the internet for finding a suitable solution to the bug, but to my resentment, I could not find anything that could help me fix the “Cannot Connect to App Store” error.

Then, I tried myself to cope with the problem. After lapse of time and research, I discovered a method to fix the “Cannot Connect to App Store” error. This trick is explained below:

Click on one of the link and you will be directed to App Store, where you can download the application without experiencing “Cannot Connect to App Store” error.
