    y App store says there are 12 apps that need updating. when I press "Update All" it doesnt even ask for my password anymore, and all the apps are left "waiting" . I tried reset, I tried pausing all but one. I tried updating one at a time... So far, nothing works.... And I deleted my Flipboard app, now tried to isntall again, it is also "waiting" HELP!

    Where are you trying to update from? An iPad? iPhone? Mac? Pc? There are multiple different reasons for them all if you can let me know your device I can try and help, if you have resolved your problem just let me know.

    Hi there...see if there are any apps in iTunes that is holding up the process and delete those. See if that works.

    It won't be that, the downloads are on an iDevice not a mac or pc, a router can tackle multiple downloads from different locations, it wouldn't stop downloads.

    This process is a little long winded, but it usually fixes all the potential problems resulting in multiple stuck / waiting installations on the device...

    1) go to Settings > Store, and sign out of your account by clicking on your user name and choosing "sign out"
    2) turn on Airplane mode on your device.
    3) power off the device fully
    4) reboot / power cycle your home wifi / broadband router and wait for it to restart
    5) power on your device
    6) turn off Airplane mode
    7) go to Settings > Store and sign in with your ID and password again

    You may still have the same icons "waiting" but one of them (the one at the fornt of the queue), should start it's download and install process. It's not always the first icon in the list. It can be one on another page, so have patience and look carefully. You should see the spinning download indicator in the top left...

    If nothing appears to be happening after 30 seconds or so, open iTunes and press "update all" again.

    Let us know how you get on.
