Fix iOS 7 iTunes Store Crashing Issue On iPhone, iPad, iPod touch

Seldom does a new release of any software pass without a few teething issues, and iOS 7 has been no different. With a few lock screen security problems having been fixed with the minor iOS 7.0.2 update last week, some users have been reporting of their iTunes Store app crashing since updating from iOS 6. Luckily, there are some fairly painless fixes available, and you can check the details after the break!

With so much content now available through iTunes, Apple has had to dissect the content and channel it through different apps on iOS. You have the App Store app, iBookstore and iTunes U alongside the iTunes Store app, which specializes in your music, movie, and TV content. Ever since upgrading to iOS 7, some have found that the iTunes Store app randomly crashes, but as is often the case when an incident is widespread, there are a plethora of solutions currently circulating around the Web.
