Fix: Cannot Connect to iTunes Store

Here is a quick tip for those of you who sometimes get the error saying Cannot Connect to iTunes Store. Besides getting this annoying error message, it makes it impossible for you to either download or update applications from the App Store.
I’m not sure what the problem is but here is how to fix it:
1. SSH to /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/
2. back up and delete the file
3. Reboot 



  1. Been looking for this quite a lot, and finally found it! Thanks a lot for this fix! Worked great. Btw: Installing apps still worked on my phone, only the updating didn't work somehow :/

    1. Did you check your firewall? This seemed to fix my connection problem pretty quick...

  2. thanks to u , it worked for me as well, you tube fix #1 had not worked.


  3. Worked superbly!!! @ the moment all my apps were up to date

  4. What the F#$%@ does SSH to mean?

  5. how do i backup the file?

  6. How do you SSH to that location? Do you do it on the phone or on a computer?

  7. Hi Friends, this is not a big problem at all.
    Dont delete any thing from your mobile

    Just go to settings -> Safari -> and clear cache and cookie.
    and thats it and keep enjoying to download apps.
    I hope it work.

  8. Waqas fix did not work and I don't know how to do the SSH thing!! Please help!!

  9. here is all you have to know about SHH..

  10. Actually the suggestion this site made - deleting the /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/ was the ONLY thing that worked (and I used iFile, which is much, much easier to browse and use)

    I've tried ALL other suggestions that is offered on this site (as well as two others) but none worked except deletion of

    Try it if nothing else works. Worked for me!
