    I tried to update all apps in the App Store and they now show as 'updating' but however long I wait they do not complete.
    I can find no way to end the frozen update.

    Any advice welcome.

    Reboot your iPad: tap and hold Home and Power button at the same time until the Apple logo appears.

    Go to the App Store - Featured - Apple ID, sign out and in again.

    Update the apps with iTunes on your computer, then sync to your iPad.

    G'day David. You could try deleting all those apps that you are trying to update and then re-install them one by one. Sometimes if you try to install too many apps at the same time you may find some app getting hung up.
    Regards, Andrew

    Do I need to have the iPad2 connected to update the apps on the computer (or can I do this before connection to then sync?) I do not know how to update without the iPad2 connected. When I run iTunes.exe I can see no way to do this on the resulting screen. Please advise.

    Yes, you can update apps in iTunes without the iPad connected. On the left side of iTunes should be a line titled "Apps" (I have my iTunes set-up to show that left column - like the older versions of iTunes had automatically).

    Once you are in the Apps section, look for an update button at the top of the displayed apps. Clicking on it should make iTunes tell you that you have x-number of apps that need an update. You acknowledge this and then iTunes will download all the updates.

    Then, once the updates are done, you should be able to connect your iPad and sync the updates over.

    Hope this helps.

    I finally got this sorted with the help of Apple support.
    ITunes was reporting in 'Check for Available Downloads' that 'All purchases have been downloaded for this Apple ID'.
    The solution involved among other things resetting my wifi.

    Thanks for your suggestions and for clarifying that I did not have to have the iPad connected to update my apps.
