Im sorry if there is another post on this...I didn't see one! None of my apps will update and Im not able to download new ones. They just say WAITING! I posted on Apples site but wanted to know if anyone here had any fixes?

TIA

Try the good old hard reset/reboot. Press and hold both home & sleep button together, ignore the slide to power off. Keep holding till you see the Apple logo, then release both. It will take just a little longer for your phone to come back on, so don't worry about that part. See if that helps out or not.

I've tried that and still won't work! There are 5 pages on Apples site of people having same problem.

I had a similar issue when my wifi connection was low.

Will those same apps update on your computer, assuming it has a better connection than your device?

Wouldn't update through iTunes. So frustrated! Can't play one of my games cause update is stuck!
