IOS 8 won’t up­date apps

Mac Format - - APPLETALK -

I up­dated my iPhone 5s with iOS 8, but now I have prob­lems up­dat­ing apps. The sign in prompt does not ap­pear any more and sign­ing in to my ac­count first has no af­fect on up­dat­ing apps. An­thony Reid It’s not that they don’t down­load, ex­actly, but the downloads for some apps can get stuck in cer­tain cir­cum­stances. This seems to be a prob­lem with the apps them­selves, rather than iOS 8 – oth­er­wise it would af­fect ev­ery­one, which def­i­nitely isn’t the case. The 8.0.2 up­date doesn’t seem to have made any dif­fer­ence and the prob­lem can af­fect iPads, too.

The best so­lu­tion is to iden­tify the app that’s caus­ing the prob­lem, and delete it un­til it has been up­dated to work with iOS 8. The Wall Street Jour­nal app is the only one I know of con­firmed to cause the prob­lem, but it’s not the only one. A few users claim they’ve restarted downloads by ei­ther turn­ing off autoup­date and restart­ing, down­load­ing from the pur­chased tab, rather than up­dates, in the App Store or down­load­ing from iTunes on a Mac and then sync­ing across.
