    Hi. My iPad shows I've got updates to run,but when I click update, it says it's not available in the UK store and that I have to return to the South African store to update. I've never had this problem before. And I did not change any of my settings. Please help to get this sorted??

    Go to the App Store app, Featured. Scroll down to your Apple ID, tap it and sign out.
    That done, sign in again, using your existing Apple ID and password. You will be directed to your country again.

    Welcome to Apple iPad Forums. Enjoy your stay and act as if IPF was an online hotel. Administrators, moderators, and super moderators are the hotel staff, everyone else is another guest, and those people you put as friends are guests that just happen to be your friends.
