    The iTunes Store is down right now. You can't download or purchase apps, music, ... Apple is trying to fix this.

    How did you know it was down? Meanwhile, having seen several of you had updated, I wondered what that was all about, so looked at settings, and although I'd gone to version 8.1.3 two days go, 8.2 was ready, so I've done that.

    BUT, when I did the other upgrade, I had to do reset as well, it didn't tell me to, one of you did, so do I have to reset today

    iOS can be upgraded right now because it's not connected with the iTunes Store or the App Store.

    I first.heard about it here at iPad Forums, I then checked out the link I gave you.

    Apple has a system status page for every country. Here's the link to the UK site:
    https://www.apple.com/uk/support/systemstatus/

    If you think of resetting by pressing and holding Home and Power button until you see the Apple logo, ... then you should do this after updating.

    Hi, it's not a case of thinking about doing it, it's a case of should I? or is it a requirement that it is done after updating?.

    You should do it, although Apple does not require it. Resetting could remove glitches you would experience otherwise.
