    This works for me, too! I had some music downloads in iTunes which stucked there (why ever), just deleted them and then the appdownloads works fine...

    Got mine figured out. I also use iTunes Match. We've had problems with it since the beginning, like others have...downloads start then quit, making it impossible to listen to a specific song, etc. for some reason, iTunes was trying to download 70+ songs. These were taking precedence over my app downloads. I swipe-deleted all the music downloads, and the apps started downloading right away. So if you're having this problem, be sure to go to iTunes - More - Downloads to see if your phone is trying to download a ton of music. I'm guessing this could happen whether or not you use match, as iTunes will try to download music automatically from time-to-time.

    The topic of this discussion is regarding apps, not music. I have no problems downloading/synching music on my iPhone4 with iTunes or the App Store after intsalling the iOS6 upgrade. The problem being discussed here is with regard to apps -- again, not music downloads. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Apple Tech Support confirms there is a problem with iOS6 and apps which they are working on to resolve. Let's hope they get it fixed soon!

    And if you pay attention to what I wrote, rather than being snarky, you would understand that I too was talking about downloading apps. Once I cleared the stuck downloads in my iTunes, my apps started downloading immediately. Sorry if this fix does not apply to you, but I'm sure it does apply to others, and last I checked, discussion forums were not generally specific to one troll..I mean person.

    "i was able to fix mine by deleting pending downloads in itunes.  i must have started soem music downloads from icloud but paused them when i skipped a track or something.  after deleting those pending downloads, my apps kicked right in and started downloading."


    This worked!  For some odd reason there was a song pending in downloads in the iTunes app.  Deleted it and now apps install.

    This worked for me also. I had about 20 apps stuck halfway "installing". Went to itunes and I had one song stuck on "pending download". I deleted it, went back to the home screen and now all the apps are finishing their installs.


    Thanks guys!!

    Stacey is correct..  music downloads will make the downloading of any apps WAIT until all the music is downloaded first..   if you have several songs queued up in the downloads on the itunes store, you need to cancel out of them to get apps downloading and installing.

    I'm glad I was able to help some of you fix it. I know how frustrating it was. Took me a while to figure that out. I just wish it worked for everyone. Seems like some of you are still stuck.

  • Scott Sacto CA Level 1 (0 points)

    This worked for me as well. I had one song stuck in download, I deleted it and the apps started downloading.

  • Stone Puddin Level 1 (0 points)

    It seems to be working, but taking forever to install the apps.  I use the iWork apps, just about daily so I need them, and they are slowing the process dramatically.  Let's hope this works

    iPhone 4 with ios 6: Same issue, apps stuck installing.

    I deleted apps that were stuck "installing." Syncing didn't help, removing the "installing" apps didn't help, as more then started "installing". I then put the phone in Airplane Mode, turned off iTunes Match in Settings>Music and resynced. That did it. (So, I think I didn't need to delete the 24 apps that were originally stuck. Just Airplane Mode and turn off iTunes Match.) Turned iTunes Match back on after resync that loaded the apps, and everything is fine, and I added back the apps I had previously (perhaps unnecessarily) deleted. So for me, it seems iTunes Match was the issue. I should have guessed that right away, as immediately after installing ios 6, my playlists were gone. I turned off iTunes Match, turned it back on, and the playlists were there.

    I hooked my iphone 4 up to the laptop, clicked Restore - it wiped the phone, then asked me to restore from the last backup (from minutes before) - I said yes.


    after it was done I went to the App store, and the updates went through fine. 


    it all seems like its working like normal now.

  • altabear Level 1 (0 points)

    It worked!


    Thanks for getting and posting that info - saved my experience with iOS 6.

  • S-U Level 1 (0 points)

    I've tried everything listed here (except completely clearing my iphone 4). Removed all the music, made sure match is off, restored, etc but no luck. Now I can't even get my music back to my phone. I really don't want to have to go back to factory and lose my data and reinstall. This stinks.

  • diego_nasiff Level 1 (0 points)

    I have the same problem.
