Even on the 4s it isent fully working the pics aren't always display and playing the song sometimes says its playing but it isent with 3g4bars. I don't think this is an iPhone 5 problem. I have ios6.
This is a major problem, google search this and you willl see started a few days ago, some people are trying a full backup and restore. I did that and it only fixed it for a few hours then it was broke again. Other posts have this as a confirmed apple store server problem but so far Apple has been silent. Affecting all types of iphone models and in different countries.
Sometimes there may be a delay when initially launching the App store but there shouldnt be a blank screen. Does this occur when you are on WiFi or the Verizon network? Can you please power cycle your device and then attempt to access the store again.http://bit.ly/RfHijN.
