    I've been getting this pop-up for the past week or so. Anyone else? I did a search and didn't see any other post about it. What's the problem?
    Thanks!

    I've been getting them too. Then when I connect certain apps won't download or update

    None of those options did anything. Tried all of them and went into the app store and first thing I get the same message.
    Gotta tell you this pisses me off to no end. To a point where I may bail in the iPhone altogether

    Okay, I was irritated and have calmed down. I'm not leaving the iPhone it's just do great of a phone but this app store thing is very irritating.

    @Terry M. It's definitely a frustrating issue and it has affected tons of people. When you tried the date change, did you go all the way through changing year plus time from AM to PM or vice-versa? I know that last little detail has made the difference for a number of people.

    ^^^ Sorry for duplicate - kept getting server errors that seemed to imply that reply wasn't posted.

    I have not. So far..... changing the AM/PM along with the date has seemed to work. I'll keep your suggestion in mind also. I'm horrible about syncing to the desktop/laptop.

    So now I'm being afflicted with this on my iPad Mini, but it is ALSO killing my iTunes Match service. Tried all of the fixes on Patrick's blog multiple times, no luck.

    I guess I just won't be buying apps, music, or videos until they fix this...

    Have you tried contacting Apple support and asking them to clear your downloads queue?

    honestly, I'd rather just go without the app store than have to screw with it anymore.

    Fair enough. The other thing to note is that there have been a number of days over recent months where the App Store servers seem not to be able to cope, and there's no fix at the user end.
