    Many times when you see that security code error, it is because the address that you have entered in the iTunes account does not match the address exactly on your credit card billing statement. I know that sounds weird, but I have seen it reported by other users.

     

    Double check the information in iTunes and make sure that the information is identical to the information on your CC statement. If the credit cards lists your address as "street" and in iTunes you entered "St." that can messs things up - according to reports that I have read.

     

    If you still have no success, contact iTunes support via email using this link.

    I have done all the same things, too.  But even when I update apps on my computer, I can't download them onto my iPad.  I have noticed that I have no problem updating apps or downloading programs on our iTouches...so what is the difference with my iPad?

    DEMO I tried all that and nothing works.  Apps show waiting for 1 sec then revert to standard.  Itunes says all downloads are complete.  When I try downloading with my windows desktop (Itunes) the message says cannot download there is an unknown problem in Itunes try again later....error (11111)

    I am having the exact same issue as LPK74. Not working on 2 x iPad 2s, iPhone 3GS, or iPhone 4. Have double checked all account settings, everything seems in order. Thanks for any help you can shed on this.

    I have never heard of this error code but when I Goggled it, I found this discussion. See if it is applicable to you.

    I have a slightly different problem. I know I am signed into the right account and I don't get an error message. The apps update fine to my iTunes on my laptop but when I try to get all 9 updates (even individually) on my iPad 2 the process asks me for my Apple ID and password, then seems to start the update and after a second or so, reverts to the original state without updating. No error message of any kind but no update either. Tried syncing to iTunes but it doesn't seem to do anything...laptop seems to think my iPad is a camera but it does show up in iTunes and I am able to download new apps without difficulty. Can you suggest something please?

    This just happened to me. So, after reading these posts, I checked my iTunes downloads and found a podcast was downloading. I paused it for the time being, went back to my app which now started its update - then went pack to the podcast to finish down loading that one.

     

    I would not have known how to do this without the comments made on this page.

    uTube, Netflix & RTE Player apps dissapeared from my iPad 3 (IOS 6.1.3). When I search in app store I can see the apps but the FREE button is not selectable.

    Please, how do I find out if any downloads are "stuck" - on my computer and on my iPad?  This seems like a logical fix if I can only find one....
