iPhone Unable to Download Item

iPhone Unable to Download Item

I am passionate about iOS, because it is customer friendly and secure. So I always get new iOS updates at first time, and check its new capabilities. However, iOS sometimes has some bugs, too. For example, after my iPhone updated to iOS 10, there once came a message saying unable to download item please try again later, and leaving two options "Done" and "Retry". I bet that I am not the only lucky one. Many iOS users must have gotten into this trouble, too. And if we tap "Done" or "Retry", it would reappear again and again.

Often this message appears due to background activity, when iPhone keeps itself updating iTunes Match, iBooks, or iOS Automatically. But the message is said to still appear even when you have turned off all these background operations. The main reason said about this message is that it is a bug that can be get rid of in the upcoming versions, hopefully. However, before this bug gets fixed in the future iOS version, what can we do with it now?
