    My App Store indicated there are 12 apps needing to be updated. When I hit each individual app to update, the spinning wheel starts and then stops and the update bar appears again without updating. The same thing happens when I choose"update all". What can I do?

    Try rebooting.

    Sign out of your Apple ID, reboot and then log back in.

    Just stating the obvious, but to be sure we’ve covered all our bases—is your signal (Wi-Fi or cellular) strong and solid?

    If you’re not sure, then if you’re doing this on Wi-Fi, try on cellular just to be sure that’s not the issue (remember it will cost you data from your monthly plan).

    The next step is to reset all settings through the Settings app. This is a common problem over the past couple weeks. If it ends up working most of the time, I would just wait for an iOS update.

    I haven't. But know a few who have. The problem there is keeping the apps updated. To do that, you have to switch accounts back and forth. It's not worth it IMO.
