Based on my personal experience, whenever I open the App Store on my iPhone while on a really fast internet network, the app takes about a second or so to show everything, which has been updated.
However, when the device is connecting to a slower internet network, my App Store tend to take forever to show a single content on the screen.
For those of you whose are currently experience the same thing with App Store loading really slow, here is how to fix it. Apple has implemented a hidden action in its app marketplace that allows you to force it to reload.
As a result, every single content including featured apps, search functional, etc is loaded immediately.
How to Force App Store to Reload on an iPhone or iPad
- Launch the App Store from your home screen
- Tap on the Search icon for 10 times
As you can see, the process is pretty much easy and straight-forward. If you don’t feel like using the Search tab, you can also tap on any other tabs such as Featured, Top Charts, Explore, and Updates for ten times and the App Store will load almost right away.
Although you have the option to pick the menu you want to tap, once you tap on it you can’t change to another tab or else the count will restart.
When done, you will see the App Store pages get pull up and deliver the latest contents and updates.
