I have a notification of 14 apps for updating on my iPad and 15 apps on my iPhone. Yet, nothing is appearing in iTunes on my MacBook Pro / OS 10.9. No matter how often I click "Check for Updates", I am told that there are no updates available for my library. When I check the version numbers of the apps in my iTunes that appear on my iPad & iPhone, they are a version below what is available. 


This has only started happening in the last couple of days.

iTunes, OS X Mavericks (10.9)

    I have the same problem; on my ipad it says there are updates available for some of my apps, but they're not showing up on my itunes.

  • samaki Level 1 Level 1

    Same here, updates in iPhone and iPad but nothing shows up in iTunes (11.1.3 on 10.9).

    Are you logged in to your iTunes account on the Mac?



  • jovike Level 1 Level 1

    Yes, same problem here. I have tried signing out and back in in iTunes, restarting iTunes and even restarting the Mac. I can see on AppShopper that many apps I own such as IFTTT, Vine have been updated in the last few days, but iTunes is still saying there are no app updates for me. I only have one account on iTunes.

    Same here - UK and US stores - no updates showing on either.  Lots of updates showing on iphone

    Same problem. Dutch Store and Japanese Store. iPad will show and download updates for installed Apps: NO updates will show under the iTunes (11.1.3) Updates tab in Apps section. iTunes simply says all is up to date, when it really is not. Also started happening a few days ago. Still not working a few days later.


    Apple: what is going on?

    Same here,  German iTunes Strore, 11.1.3 on 10.8.5 OS X.

  • AlexDock Level 1 Level 1

    Same problem here since yesterday, French iTunes Store, only one account, 11.1.3 on 10.9 OS X.

    Same thing happen since a couple days ago.  It was working fine until like ...2 or 3 days ago.

    I have tried repairing permissions, clearing user and system caches etc... still not working.

    Same thing here for me in the uk. I'm just back from the Netherlands and thought it might have been caused by me possibly having interrupted app updates there and then trying to resume them when I returned home to the uk. I had 40 apps waiting to be updated, but nothing appeared to be happening. I've tried deleting and re-instating some affected apps from iTunes  and at one point it did re sync around 8 apps, not necessarily those I manually deleted. My iPad tells me I have 34 apps to update, while iTunes on my PC tells me I'm up to date. I think I got rid of all the apps in a 'waiting..' state on the iPad, but when I then try to update just one of the list to be updated, all I get is the little rotating circle. I've tried rebooting, airplane mode off/on as suggested in previous threads, etc etc etc to no avail. I've a fairly full 64gb iPad and won't consider going down the restore route, although given others are experiencing this, it sounds more like an apple server problem than our devices.

    Sorry, also meant to say that I don't think my laptop iTunes is telling the truth -it seems to show higher version numbers I.e. the updates to the iPad waiting apps - but I'm not convinced it has downloaded those as I haven't had the laptop on until I came back to the uk and loaded iTunes. I would have noticed it trying to update 40 apps there as it's normally a fairly slow process.

  • jovike Level 1 Level 1

    You can look at Apps / List / sort by Date Modified (add the column if you don't have it by right-clicking on a column heading). The last bunch of apps I updated was at 14:00 GMT on the 12th. No updates in iTunes for me since then.

  • Brantome Level 1 Level 1

    Yeah, thx - similar here, highest laptop/iTunes date stamp is 5th dec, while the iPad has 35 updates which won't apply.
