    Default App Store apps not downloading or updating today

    Has anyone noticed an issue today? I havent had any issues before, but today, every app says waiting if I try to download. I have logged out and back into the store, shut down, forced shut down, reset all settings. reset network settings. Wondering if its an issue fore more than one person.

    nevermind, I guess I got hit with this bug for the first time. This was my solution

    Hold your finger on the icon of the app that is stuck on waiting, until wiggle mode is enabled, and remove the app
    Plug in your iOS device to iTunes and sync
    Reinstall the application from the App Store and installs and upgrades should work again

    Thanks for the follow-up. Anyway, one of the first things I check if I detect a problem with Apple's services is go to its System Status page via the following link:

    I have an app that has an update that I did not want to do. It's been showing the red 1 on my app store icon. updated to ios 7 today and the (1) is gone. the app is still the old version (which I wanted) but the app store says all apps are up to date. weird. I have the auto update turned OFF so it won't get rid of it, but it should still at least say there is an update available as it has in ios 6.

    It's doing the same thing on iOS6 - I posted about it in another thread earlier because I wasn't sure where to put it.

    NP. I'm undecided if the app store is just overloaded or if Apple broke something today.

    I’m going with "overloaded". It was working very well earlier... now, like the rest of the Apple universe, it’s getting slammed. At least I hope that’s the issue.

    Yeah I'm leaning that way too. It was just fun to throw it out there.

    Yeah I've seen it before, also found out I couldn't update certain apps until I installed iOS 7 and even after that I had to go to purchased under updates and click open on all the iOS 7 ready apps for them to install the iOS 7 versions.
