Hi All

I have 68 apps that need updating. When i click "68 Updates Available" in iTunes, I get an error message saying that I the iTunes store is temporarily unavailable and to try again later - this has been going on for hours! Can anyone help?

I am accessing iTunes from my MacBook Pro.


iPhone, iOS 4

    My iTunes tells me that I have 11 Apps for which updates are available.

    When I click to perform the updates, I am told that there are no updates currently available…

    This has been going on for weeks now, with the number of apps for which updates are supposedly available gradually increasing.

    Same problem. I have 200 app updates now which need updating. I have tried de-authorizing / authorizing again and it has had no effect.

    This has been going on for weeks. How is this fixed?

    After some tests, I believe that the apps update count shown refers to all of the apps stored by iTunes. However, an update is downloaded only when an app is installed on an iPad/iPod/iPhone. In other words, those apps that do not require synching (apps not installed on an i-machine) do not get updated, though they continue to be included in the updates count.

    I have been having the same problem for over a month now. It will only let me update my apps form my computer and then sync my ipod and my iphone. I don't know what is going on. I cannot buy anything from either device from itunes. It will not let me get anything off itunes. There seems to be quite and issue from many people here, but there does not seem to be an answer from anyone. I reset everything and still I cannot get it to work. I lost all my game info in doing it too. I will someone would answers us.
