Check the system status page
Check Apple's System Status page to see if there's an outage for a service in your country or region.
Make sure that your device is connected to the internet
Use any web browser to connect to any website. If nothing is loading, use another device on the same network to see if it can connect to any website. If no other devices can access the internet, turn off your Wi-Fi router, then turn it on again to reset it. If you still can't connect to your Wi-Fi network, contact your internet provider for more help. If only your first device can't connect to the internet, get help with Wi-Fi on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, Apple Watch, Apple TV or Mac.
If you use mobile service to connect to the internet on your iPhone or iPad, make sure that you have mobile data turned on for the app that you're using. To do this, open the Settings app, tap Mobile Data, then turn on Mobile Data.
Update your software
Check the date and time
Make sure that the date and time on your device are set correctly for your time zone.
On your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch: Open the Settings app. Tap General, then tap Date & Time. Get more help with date and time.
On your Mac: Open System Preferences, then choose Date & Time.
On your Apple TV: Go to Settings > General > Date and Time.
If the date and time are incorrect, update them or turn on the option to set date and time automatically.
If you still can't connect
If you've tried all of the above steps and still can't connect, contact Apple Support.
