    First of all, restart the iPad (turn off and on again), reset it (press and hold Home and Power button until the Apple logo appears) and clear the multitask bar (double press the Home button to reveal it, then tap and hold an app until it starts to wiggle and delete them all).

    You could also try to sign out in App Store - Featured, then sign in again with your Apple ID.
    Or set your iPad to Airplane Mode in Settings, wait for a few minutes and turn off Airplane Mode again.

    If everything suggested fails try to update the apps through iTunes on your computer and sync to your iPad afterwards.

    Make sure also that your iPad is decently charged or plugged got the main. In addition, make sure your wifi has a strong signal to start the updates.

    Good luck and let us know.

    I've tried all of the ideas offered. It's almost like the update icon doesn't work. I'll have to call apple. It's been working fine. I have no idea what's going on.

    My iPad is fairly new...got it for Christmas. I'll be calling Apple support tomorrow. It's almost like the touch pad isn't working....they will be replacing my iPad.

    Yes, change the date on your iPad. Sounds weird, but helps sometimes.

    Or reset (other kind of reset): in Settings - General - Reset - Reset all Settings.

    Current software on iPad should be 6.1.3.

    And just to make sure: all of you have tried updating in iTunes on your computer, not the iPad, and then synced to the iPad?

    My iPad 4, which is on iOS 6.1.3 will not allow or even show my available app updates. My iPhone 4S, which is on iOS 7 beta 3 updated 5 apps just now without a problem. I just checked the Apple system status page and there are no reported issues.
