When I try to update or download new apps - it starts, but then says waiting, as if others are updating and it is waiting it's turn - however, they never update. I can do it through itunes on the computer, but I wonder why I can no longer do this just from my phone - any help is appreciated!
Are you trying to download the apps using your wifi connection on your phone or using your sim card Internet connection? It's all boiling down to your iPhone Internet connectivity and downloading speed.
I was wondering if anyone continued to have this issue. I have an iPhone 4s that is jailbroke. I get notification that an app needs to update so I go ahead and click to update. Apple does not ask for my password and under the app I get the "waiting". The only way I can get it to finally update (or download) is to restart the phone completely. I've tried to stop all apps but still no go. Anyone know why this is happening and how I can fix?
