All seems normal, there comes an loadingline under the app that gets the update only the loadingline stays empty, there comes no progress filling and the text "waiting" keeps standing under the empty progress line. This also happens when i buy a new (free, i haven't tried to buy a new one since this problem..) app. The icoon appears as usual, but the loadingline stays empty..... Hope you can help! By the way my ipad works with wifi same as my ipod. My ipod doesnt experience this problem.
I'm having the same problem with the Ipad3. You can do the app store part of the purchase / upgrade. The icon appears with the "waiting" message and empty download bar, then no download occurs.
I've tried deleting and repeating
Hard reset and repeating
Itunes sync with computer
downloading on a different network
Same problem persists regardless. Any ideas?
I thought that might be the issue but I wasn't certain. For whatever reason, this seems to be occurring more frequently that it used to.
Two thoughts ... if you have a stalled download in iTunes - maybe a song or a podcast that did not finish downloading, complete that download or delete the download - and then try the apps again. Only one thing can download at a time and anything that might have stuck in iTunes could be causing the problem.
the other thing that I will suggest is sign out of your account, restart the iPad and then sign in again. Settings>Store>Apple ID - tap your ID and sign out.
Restsrt the iPad ..... Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.
Go back to Settings>Store>Sign in - sign in and try again.
Thanks, this also resolved my issue, though it took some finding! Somehow I have two copies of a music video and one hadn't downloaded. Once I did that, everything else was resolved. This was after cancelling two pending podcasts which didn't do the trick!
Pain in the behind to sort out but happily, it's all good now!
