I noticed this last night and kept getting the error "Cannot connect to iTunes store" on my iPhone and iPad. I thought maybe it was a problem with two-factor authentication or the last IOS update. The problem seems to be fixed now since I was able to log in this morning.

I was getting this error last night on my iPad. I reset my settings (did not delete data) and was able then to connect to iTunes services. As soon as I can, I will reference the article that I found that solved the issue.
