UIAlertView first deprecated IOS 9

I have tried several ways to use UIAlertController,instead of UIAlertView. I tried several ways but I cannot make the alert action work.
Here is my code that works fine in IOS 8 and IOS 9 but is showing up with deprecated flags. I tried the elegant suggestion below but I can't make it function in this context. I need to submit my app and this is the last thing to address. Thank You for any further suggestions. I am a newbie.

#pragma mark - BUTTONS ================================
- (IBAction)showModesAction:(id)sender {
NSLog(@"iapMade: %d", iapMade3);

// IAP MADE ! ===========================================
if (!iapMade3) {

//start game here
gamePlaysCount++;
[[NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults]setInteger:gamePlaysCount forKey:@"gamePlaysCount"];
NSLog(@"playsCount: %ld", (long)gamePlaysCount);

if (gamePlaysCount >= 4) {
UIAlertView *alert = [[UIAlertView alloc]initWithTitle:@"Basic"
message: THREE_PLAYS_LIMIT_MESSAGE
delegate:self
cancelButtonTitle:@"Yes, please"
otherButtonTitles:@"No, thanks", nil];
[alert show];

NSString *path = [[NSBundle mainBundle] pathForResource:@"cow" ofType:@"wav"];
_pop =[[AVAudioPlayer alloc] initWithContentsOfURL:[NSURL fileURLWithPath:path] error:NULL];
[_pop play];
[self dismissViewControllerAnimated:true completion:nil];

} else {
if (gamePlaysCount == 1) {
// Create & store the next 5 mins when player gets 3 more lives
nextDateToPlay = [[NSDate date] dateByAddingTimeInterval:60*60*0.1];
NSLog(@"CURRENT DATE: %@", [NSDate date]);
NSLog(@"NEXT DAY: %@", nextDateToPlay);
[[NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults]setObject: nextDateToPlay forKey:@"nextDateToPlay"];
NSLog(@"nextDateToPlay: %@", nextDateToPlay);

UIAlertView *alert = [[UIAlertView alloc]initWithTitle:@"Basic"
message: THREE_PLAYS_LIMIT_MESSAGE2
delegate:self
cancelButtonTitle:@"Got it!"
otherButtonTitles:@"Start", nil];
[alert show];
} else {

if (gamePlaysCount == 3) {
UIAlertView *alert = [[UIAlertView alloc]initWithTitle:@"Basic"
message: THREE_PLAYS_LIMIT_MESSAGE3
delegate:self
cancelButtonTitle:@"Yep, I Know!"
otherButtonTitles:@"Start", nil];
[alert show];
}
}
}
}

}

// IAP NOT MADE =============================

#pragma mark - ALERTVIEW DELEGATE ============================

-(void)alertView:(UIAlertView *)alertView clickedButtonAtIndex:(NSInteger)buttonIndex {

if ([[alertView buttonTitleAtIndex:buttonIndex] isEqualToString:@"Yes, please"]) {

UIStoryboard *storyboard = self.storyboard;
MenuViewController *svc = [storyboard instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier:@"Store"];
svc.modalTransitionStyle = UIModalTransitionStyleCrossDissolve;
[self presentViewController:svc animated:YES completion:nil];

}

}

From iOS8 Apple provide new UIAlertController class which you can use instead of UIAlertView which is now deprecated, its is also stated in depreciation message

UIAlertView is deprecated. Use UIAlertController with a preferredStyle of UIAlertControllerStyleAlert instead

So you should use something like this

UIAlertController * alert = [UIAlertController
                alertControllerWithTitle:@"Title"
                                 message:@"Message"
                          preferredStyle:UIAlertControllerStyleAlert];

   UIAlertAction* yesButton = [UIAlertAction
                        actionWithTitle:@"Yes, please"
                                  style:UIAlertActionStyleDefault
                                handler:^(UIAlertAction * action) {
                                    //Handle your yes please button action here
                                }];

   UIAlertAction* noButton = [UIAlertAction
                            actionWithTitle:@"No, thanks"
                                      style:UIAlertActionStyleDefault
                                    handler:^(UIAlertAction * action) {
                                       //Handle no, thanks button                
                                    }];

   [alert addAction:yesButton];
   [alert addAction:noButton];

   [self presentViewController:alert animated:YES completion:nil];
