The problem is a weird one. You try to download a new or updated app, get told you need to agree to new terms and conditions, go through that process only to have to do it again… and again… and again. The only way out of this was to hit cancel and not agree to the new terms and conditions, but that means not getting the app

It’s not just an annoying bug, but it also means that users can’t download app updates which may contain serious bug patches.

The good news is that Apple is working on a patch, and since it will be applied to the backend of the App Store, there’s nothing that the user will need to do (aside from remembering to download their apps again). If you’re affected by this bug, the best advice I have it keep trying, because Apple should hopefully have it fixed by the weekend.

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
