Greetings! Today, after the iPhone update, when you try to sign in to your account, faced with an unusual error. Phone me happily reported that it was not possible, and wrote something like this - "check failed, it failed to sign in. There was an error connecting to the server Apple ID ». Most interesting is that because of this, the phone actually turns into an ordinary "dialer", because it is impossible to use all services of Apple - on the App Store does not come, iCloud also did not activate, well, etc.

I have this attack successfully overcome, and what you want. And this guide will tell you exactly what you must do. Go!

To start advise you to check is whether Apple ID is correct and valid, that is functioning at the moment. To do this, go to the link to the official website and enter your account details. If it does not open, then register a new one. In the case where all the "OK" will look for other causes of failure.

The error occurs on the iPhone and iPad

Trouble connecting to Apple's servers can wait for you at the stage of activation. And there are only two options that you can take:

  1. Try to activate over the computer, using iTunes. Although there may be difficulties, but more on that below.
  2. Just skip the creation of your Apple ID and to do so only later, after turning on the unit.

Skip creating Apple ID
Create later!

In the event that the device is already loaded you can not sign in to your Apple ID, or vice versa, input implemented, but the App Store and other services do not work because of the failure of servers, you should pay attention to:

  1. Are all there is nothing wrong with these same Apple servers do? There are times when difficulties arise in their functioning. How to learn about it can be found here.
  2. Imperative that has been properly exposed to the date and time. Specify manually if the automatic definition is impossible.
  3. Make sure that the latest version of iOS, and certainly not a beta. In the case of the beta you consciously set has not yet been "fully ready" software, so the error is even possible.
  4. Check the connection to the Internet, both by means of Wi-Fi, and mobile data. I, for example, the problem was in the Wi-Fi connection - it just stopped working (although shows good signal), and because of this has been a failure to connect to the Apple ID. How to deal with non-performing Wi-Fi on the iPhone I wrote, I will not repeat.
  5. We are trying to get out of the Apple ID (Settings - iTunes Store, App Store - click on the account - Exit) to reboot the iPhone or iPad, and sign in using your ID again.
    Get out of the Apple ID
    Exit the account
  6. Hard reset (delete all) as a last resort. Create a backup to iCloud or iTunes on a PC in front of it!

By the way, jailbreaking can also cause such problems. Therefore, if the previous methods do not help, and the entrance to the Apple ID is still not done, we get rid of Ceyla. I remind you that you can do it right only through the iPhone recovery.

On a computer using iTunes

In rare cases, a connection error to the server and various glitches with Apple ID or App Store, can occur while working with iTunes. However, from them it is easy enough to get rid of. For this:

  1. We make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet (silly of course, but all can be).
  2. Antivirus, firewall, and other defenders can block access to Apple servers. Turn them off for a while.
  3. If you already used your account Apple ID, then try to "disengage" from its program. To do this, open the iTunes - in the upper left corner click on the "store" - deauthorize this computer. Reboot your PC.

Deauthorize this computer
Exit from your account in iTunes

We try to go once more and, most likely, you will have to do it!

That's all the actions you can take to deal with the connection error to Apple servers ID. Yes, there are not many, but the most important - they really work!
