    Hi there, I reset as you suggested however they are still waiting. Is there anything else that I can try?

    In iOS 5 when you updated the Apps app closed and went to the home page and would update in the background. In iOS 6 the updating starts while you are in the app and I think it doesn't continue if you go to the home page or another app. Do you wait in the app?

    I have the same problem, it took two days. They seemed to be backed up because as I added a new app it also showed waiting. It unstuck it self. Is there a bug somewhere ? There should be no need to go to a PC, I have just the ipad 3.

    I didn't wait in the app as I have never had to before! So what happens now just wait and hope for the best or should I be going to an apple store and getting them to fix it? What do you think?

    There does seem to be a problem here and it's not until an upgrade for the iPad is released that they do find glitches in the system. Give Czevski's idea a try, if it works, well that would be good until they do sort this out. Getting in touch with Apple is also a good idea to let them know what you are experiencing since the update.

    Another reason why apps may be in waiting is if you have any downloads pending in iTunes. Have a look in your iTunes app if there is anything pending then just swipe to delete and this will allow apps to then update.

    When I go into iTunes there are no updates there and when I go into the system upgrade bit it says that there is nothing which implies to me that the IOSUpgrade happened.

    Not updates, there is a Downloads tab in the iTunes app, did you look here?

    If you go to Settings - General - About - and look for version you will find what OS you are on.

    Look in the downloads tab to see if you have any downloads pending.
