Partially loaded updates
Hello forumers! I agreed to update like 30 apps. Then I had no idea later that they were still in progress, and left that network. Needless to say the only thing more irritating then updating apps constantly is seeing them disabled on my iPad2. They won't reinitiate the download, and I've signed in, paused restarted and the downloads just hang and the apps are dead. What should I try? And if I delete them how do I get them back?
The same thing happened to me. They will eventually come off on their own. I don't if you are going to get the apps back.

Hi yellowhorse, if you delete an app you can always reinstall it from the AppStore under purchases.

When there are dozens and they hang, I just look for progress in a few updates and if I see none, then I repeatedly return to the App Store app and tap on Update All. Usually, a few apps finish updating each time I do that, and eventually all are updated. It's a pain, though, because you have to keep checking them. On my iPads, I update every few days or so, it seems, and my few updates rarely hang.
Of course, your wifi connection is one variable. If you've got a slow connection and a bunch of apps to update, my hunch is that you're more likely to get hung up. So again it's better to update more frequently.
Just do a power down, power up. That will clear it all up.
