    If anyone can help me out with this I would greatly appreciate it. This is so weird. I was going into my settings today and when I looked at the app settings there were corkscrew symbols and when I went to click on them it said null. I am so confused. Wtf is wrong with my settings o.o Does anyone have any suggestions on what it could be or what I could do to fix it? Any help is greatly appreciated Settings Glitch-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1450083960.390710.jpgSettings Glitch-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1450083972.873437.jpg

    Have you rebooted the phone yet since this started?

    Always start there. The phone is a computer and reboots do wonders.

    Have you tried tapping on the blank apps from Settings and deleting them? If that doesn't work either give it time to see if the problem irons itself out or restore from a backup or set up as a new device.

    Yep I tried that. They stayed still in my storage. This is seriously annoying. They can't be used. They can't be deleted. They are just nothing.

    I went to backup my data and restore the iPhone but saw it would take some crazy 2gb file to do so. I only get 25gb of data a month on my WiFi and it has already been slowed so I changed my mind and turned back on find my iPhone and synced my iPhone which at first gave an error -52 message but eventually synced. I even synced it a second time and did not get the error message pop up. Now the download can take 18 hours to download at 64kbps or I will put up with the annoying settings until my internet is sped back up again. It's ridiculous that in order to fix everything in this day and age it takes a ginormous amount of data to do so. Not everyone on this world has unlimited data plans

    Go to Settings > General > Usage > Manage storage > scroll to each affected app and tap. Then delete. If anything is left on the screen, press to make wiggle and tap the X. Then go to the App Store and download them back.

    I tried that but when I went out of settings and back into storage the "null" apps I had just selected to delete were back again. They disappeared from the list when I initially selected to delete them but when I went back into the settings after thinking I had deleted them they were still there

    After deleting in Settings, did you return to the screen and delete there by tapping the X? Do that after deleting in Settings.

    I don't understand what you are talking about by returning to screen and clicking x. How do I know which app to delete

    I just went through the list of apps that I've ever had on my iPhone including ones I've deleted trying to find an 86.1mb 1.18 version app and there was NOTHING. The same version number but not the same file size o.o

    When you see one with that "cork screw" look. Delete it in Settings > General > Usage > Manage storage. Then return to the screen. If it's still there, press to wiggle, then delete by tapping the X.

    If it's fragmented, the cork screw should show on your screen. If there is nothing, first try a Hard Reset.
    Hold the top or side power/sleep button and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears, then release.
    If that doesn't work, you may need to restore your phone as new. Not from a back up.

    You have to press on an app to get them to wiggle. Do you see any icons on the screen that look broken or like a cork screw?

    None. All the apps that are on my phone all have normal icons

    OK. If there's still issues in Settings with some apps, and they won't delete, you need to restore your phone as new. You seem to have been having several issues lately. You may have a corrupted OS. Back up your photos somewhere and restore. Did you update to 9.2?

    I was on the beta program so I am on the beta 4 which became the official 9.2. Do I backup everything first? Obviously I don't want to lose all my game data etc

    Either way I can't do anything until my WiFi gets sped back up in January. I tried downloading the file to restore my device and the download timed out xd

    I have no idea. Never did beta before. If you restore as new, you'll lose game data in the App. Your issue may be the beta. Go back to 9.2 and see how it is. There's nothing on beta you'll miss.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried this but still no such luck. I wish I had the data so I could try the full reset

    You can reset and erase the entire phone in settings .. It won't reload the OS but you can setup as new and only data you will use it what apps you put back

    I just remembered I tried to delete a whole bunch of apps from Game Center when I went to remove Game Center data for apps and it asked me to uninstall them and I said yes. However the apps didn't end up uninstalling through this method as when I exited to the home screen the apps I thought I had just uninstalled via Game Center were still there and I had to manually uninstall them. My guess is that these are now the "null" apps

    You can't delete apps from Game Center I delete apps all the time and it say keep or remove from Game Center meaning stats and scores etc I always leave them but delete the actual app I don't have any null issues
