    Here's a new one (for me at least): the last few updated apps work fine on my devices, but the app icons are not visible in the App Store in the "Updates" tab on either device. I restarted my phone, but that did nothing to fix it. Has anyone else encountered this? Any fixes?

    Been happening for me, too. I haven't really attempted to try to fix it since it doesn't bother me. But I have noticed.

    I'm having the same problem. Haha. What's going on with iOS. Seems like more and more problems have been happening to iOS 9.

    +1 here on iPhone5s running iOS v9.0.2 and iPad Air1/2 running iOS v9.0.0.

    Restarted the iPhone5s: did not help. Did not bother to restart iPad Airs.

    Yeah, it's happening to me too. I hope iOS 9.1 fixes A LOT of these issues. Tempted to go back to a flip phone. 🙄

    I'm so glad it's not just me having this problem! lol. I mean, it still sucks, but at least I have some company!

    Have you guys had issues with missing icons all over iOS 9? I frequently notice when I double-tap the home button that several random apps show missing icons. (On the home screen the apps are fine though.) Sure would like to know what's up.

    6s here. 9.0.2.

    Restarting did not solve the problem on my device.

    It seems like it has fixed itself today. All the icons are back. Anyone still having trouble?

    I'm still having issues as well. Doesn't really bother me though, just as long as the apps update I'm good

    Mine also broken,, since 9.0.2.... Using iPhone 6 Plus. Minor problem, however, the lag that is affecting these icon refreshes might be affecting speed and other actions that you might not have perceived yet. Hopefully this phenomenon will get enough attention to be included in next iOS refresh.

    Mine doesn't show too. iPhone 6 Plus, 9.0.2. I event tried "Reset all settings" and that did nothing...

    This annoys me probably more than it should...

    I think the App Store is having major issues because now the apps with updates won't even update. I repeatedly press "update all", but they refuse to update.

    It seems that there has been a partial fix. The icons of today's app updates show. The icons of apps updated on October 9-10 do not show. However, the icons of prior app updates show.

    Icon display in the App Store app is back to normal except for apps update-published on Oct 8 (some), Oct 9 (all), Oct 10 (all).

    Apps do get updated when the "Update" button is pressed.

    On a separate but possibly related AppStore weirdness issue: sometimes during the updating of the app, the update process would stall and hang for a long time. Press and hold the offending icon to activate the move/delete icon-dancing mode. Touch the x-cross to delete the app. But the usual system pop-up dialog box never shows up. Cannot pause or stop the update either. Only thing that works is to go into Settings --> General --> Storage & iCloud Usage --> (Storage) Manage Storage, and then hunt through the app listing to delete the offending app.

    For me when I notice I have updates in the store and click on it, there will almost ALWAYS be more than what the phone reports. Yes it appears some are being lost in the shuffle. This certainly IS a bug but you have to ask yourself is it "mission critical" That is does it prevent the device from proper operation? I would say no. Yes it can be annoying, but the VERY easy work around is to just check the updates tab in the store every couple days, or whenever your OCD depends. lol

    I'm with the others who have said it's not a bother.

    I am occasionally having this problem also. I reported it as a bug to Apple a couple weeks back.

    I have experienced the same and when I do a search on the iPad, they appear!

    Just no icons. The apps are still there.
