    Grateful for a bit of help, please. I recently searched for a type of music and it was only available from the US App Store. Even though I did not make a purchase, my ipad is now stuck on the US store. A couple of update notifications have come on, for older, installed Apps but I cannot download them as it says they are not available from the US store. I am being
    asked to change to the local store. Simple - no! Please tell me how to make the change, back to the UK store.
    Many thanks. Peter

    Go to App Store - Featured, scroll down to your Apple ID and tap it. From the following popup, choose "Sign out".
    Then sign in again. Next popup: tap "Use existing Apple ID". Enter your Apple ID and password, and you'll be redirected to your country.

    Thank you J A. It was easy when I followed your instructions. It pays to ask. There were several updates waiting, once I linked to the UK store. Mission accomplished.
    Best wishes, Peter
