How to Change App Store Country Region in iOS 8 on Your iPhone or iPad

Your Apple ID is tagged to a country/region and you can purchase or download an app only if it’s available in that country/region. In most cases, apps are available for all countries and this shouldn’t matter much but infrequently, you might stumble on an app which is available for only some countries. In these cases, you won’t be able to download/install the app.

The quickest workaround for this is to change your app store country/region. Thankfully you can do this right on your iPhone/iPad by following some quick steps that we’ve mentioned here. Check it out.

The trick part of this is when you have a credit card associated to your Apple ID. If you have no credit cards selected or added, the None option is readily available and you can breeze through the process without a problem. But if you have added a credit card and the None option doesn’t show up, you will need to add a valid credit card whose address matches the country you have selected.
