Apple Push Stopped Working

So you get to your computer and fire up iTunes to put files onto your iPod or iPhone or what-have-you and you get the error message “Apple Push Has Stopped Working”. You close iTunes re-open same problem. Detach your device and reattach but still same issue.

The Cause:

Well very clearly its the Apple Push Service not working.

The Fix:

You need to have iTunes recreate the Apple Push Service. To do this you need first !!!CLOSE  ITUNES!!! to go to;

1. My Computer(or Computer if using vista or higher)

2. C: Drive (Usually called “Local Disk”)

3. Program Files (If you are using a 64 bit version of windows it will be in Program Files x86. To check if you are using 64 bit right click on computer and go to properties)

4.Common Files

5. Apple

6.Apple Application support


So your navigation bar should look like this: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support.


In there you are going to be renaming the file APSDeamon to APSDeamon.BAK and agree to any prompts that may appear. When you next open iTunes it will force iTunes to recreate that file as it is no longer able to find it. Now your apple devices should work again with your computer.
