I was trying to download a game from the App Store on my iPhone 5c (iOS 8.4) and I put in my password to download it but I got a pop-up message on my screen saying this: "Could not sign in x-apple-md-action_message". What does this mean?


This error occurs when a connection cannot be established. To fix it, try the following:

  • Sign out of the App Store
    • Go to Settings > App and iTunes Stores
    • Tap your Apple ID and tap Sign out
  • Shut down your iPhone
  • Restart your iPhone
  • Sign back into the App Store with your Apple ID.
