    When I upgraded the last time to iOS 7.0.2 everything went well except that I cannot access the bookstore from iBooks. I can't do it from my iPhone or iPad. Weird, not too serious as I can still buy books through my laptop. Contacted apple support and they gave me a phone number in the States. As I am in Zimbabwe at the moment not really an option.
    I see that there is another update now so maybe that will fix it. Anyone else had this problem? I don't see any comments about it so maybe it's just me.

    Do you have two apple ids? Maybe the region you are in doesn't allow users to enter the Apple iBook store?

    That I believe is the issue it most likely reverted back to local I'd but no book store

    Verify what iTunes Store and id on computer then switch the iPad to same id the book store should then be available Hope that helps

    Hi, thanks for the prompt response. Yes I do have 2 ID's but the one I am using is the normal American ID. I did check that. I even switched from one ID to the other tried no luck, came back and still nothing. It has to be something with the bookstore because I can connect to the AppStore no problem with both ID's although content is different. I have tried rebooting the iPad and that made no difference either.
    I see a new upgrade has come out, so will upgrade when I have a good wireless connection next week and see if that helps. Even the Apple lady found it strange. She gave me a number to call but not worth a long distance call.

    One more possibility:

    In case you enabled restrictions in Settings - General - Restrictions: look at iBooks Store. If it's disabled, you can't access it on your device.

    It's sounds weird, however, that you can't access it on both devices, except if it's enabled on both.

    It tries to load the page but the screen goes white the little circle shows it trying to load and then nothing just a blank white screen the top and bottom parts are there. That is the menu bars but nothing where normally the books would be.

    Do you by any chance always block cookies in Settings - Safari - Privacy & Security?

    It could be the reason why you can't access the store. Disable "Always" in Block Cookies. Choose one of the other options. If it doesn't help, enable it again.
