Make Sure There Is Enough Storage

The size of iOS 12 installation is as large as 2.24 GB after which there might be little storage left. So, when Apps won’t be downloaded in iOS 12, you might as well check whether there is still enough storage on your device.

Go to Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage. Then, you can clearly see how much storage is available.


If you find there is little storage left, you might as well completely clean your iPhone by clearing extra cookies, cache files and removing Apps you don’t often use via some third-party iPhone manager. Here, I recommend IOTransfer iPhone transfer software.

With IOTransfer, you can not only clear cookies and cache files from your iPhone within only one click, but also, you can select Apps in bulk to delete. Moreover, as its name says, it’s a mighty iPhone transfer program which allows you to transfer iOS data wirelessly or via a USB cable including photos, music, videos, and contacts across different iDevices and PC.


Download Apps via iTunes and Sync Them to Your iPhone Later

If Apps can’t be downloaded in iOS 12, maybe, to download them via iTunes and transfer to your iPhone is a better idea. Here are the steps to get it done.

1.       Launch iTunes on your PC and enter the App Store.

2.       Select the App you want to download and hit the button “Get”.

3.       When the App download is finished, connect your iPhone to PC via a USB cable and go to iTunes.

4.       Click on your device on the top left and select “Apps” under “Summary”.

5.       Click on “Install” to install the downloaded App on your iPhone.


Check the Internet Connection

If iOS 12 won’t download Apps, it might be caused by an unstable Wi-Fi connection. Go to Settings > WiFi, make sure WiFi option is toggled on.

You can also tap “!” beside the Wi-Fi’s name and change the DNS setting. You might as well try the Google setting -, – if the Wi-Fi doesn’t work properly.


Change the System Language

iOS 12 Apps can’t be downloaded? Some users claim that they successfully solved this problem by changing system language.

I don’t know the real reason why the problem can be handled this way, but why not give it a shot since it has been confirmed to work?

Go to Settings > General > Language & Region and change the language. Go back to App Store and see whether the download works. If yes, after the download, you can change the language into the original one.
