    Not sure what's going on, but I tried to download an app just now and as normal it wanted my iTunes password. I typed it in, and I know I typed it in correctly, tapped return and it just took me back to the first page of my home screen. Nothing happened, no download, nothing saying I typed it in wrong, just nothing. I tried it probably 6 more times and nothing happened. Any ideas? I haven't changed my password, and I k ow this particular password really well, so I didn't forget it or mistype it or confuse it.

    Any help/fixes appreciated.

    Occasionally iTunes requires further I'd from yourself. Goto your iTunes account and verify it again. You might want to change your passwords again too.

    This happened to me out of random about 3 weeks ago. No matter how many times i tried my password it was rejected. I had to verify something or other with my account. Changed my password too, which is never a bad idea :)

    It's not you entering a wrong password, cos it's doing the same to me. Correct password, it's accepted and nothing happened. I tried updating an app and buying another app, I entered my password, app centre closed and nothing happened on both occasions.

    Having the same issue, can't download anything in the last 10 minutes, but could an hour or two ago without issue. I can't even download any app updates I have.

    So glad it wasn't just me, and that it's working again. Thanks to all.

    Yesterday, I was unable to download several updates due to it dropping me out, but one was several Gb in size. It took hours to download. Very unusual, and I have heard of issues with podcasts being down. The servers may have been under attack, or a malfunction was going on.

    iPad not taking iTune password

    I have the same problem....just last night set up my iPad (first generation). It synched with my iTunes account on my computer fine, allowed me to set up my email account, and shows every app my iPhone has...but when I went to download or update new apps it refuses my password.....I have doublechecked and know it was correct! Is it simply an issue with iTunes sometimes? Seems like from this thread it was...but I haven't tried it today....:)

    Hard to say, iTunes does occasionally have problems, though it's not that often; at least not in my experience. If it persists let let us know. Or call Apple Support.
