    Every day, whether using auto-updates or not, there will be one or two apps that will not complete updating. This happens on both my iPhone 6 and iPad Air. This morning, out of over 10 updates on both, Outlook (which I only use because Apple cannot figure out Gmail IMAP like everyone else) would not complete it's update.

    What does not solve the problem
    Quitting/Restart App Store
    Deleting/Reinstalling app (cannot delete)
    Syncing newly downloaded update from iTunes (cannot update)
    Deleting from iTunes (cannot delete)

    What does solve the problem
    Restart

    Every morning: 1) Run updates; 2) Restart; 3) Run updates again

    Thanks in advance

    iPhone 6, iOS 9.2, 64 GB

    I run into this issue now and then. Usually a restart will help as you said.

    Also try clearing the App Store cache by tapping one of the buttons across the bottom row 10 times. I usually tap the update button 10 times until I see it refresh. So far what you're doing otherwise seems to do the trick for me but it's not frequent for me like it seems to be for you.

    You can always delete the app in Settings >General >Usage >Manage storage. Delete it there, then if there is anything left on the screen it should delete on off tapping the X.

    Thanks, let's see if that does the trick

    Thanks. I figured that one out, but I'm hoping to not have to delete apps every morning.
