    Hi hoping someone can help. I’ve set my phone to all the right things country says UK etc yet when I try to download or update apps it says it’s not available in my country or region? My other family members phones say the same, as we have family sharing I control the country and it’s definitely UK. XS max all up to date 12.1

    That means the app you are trying to update was not installed from the uk AppStore.

    And is your iTunes account a UK account as well?

    Wouldn’t contacting iTunes support be the path of least resistance? Apple Store won’t be able to help you.
