Developers spent much of the past two weeks prepping their apps for Retina display, in anticipation of last week’s release of the third generation iPad. Unfortunately, many users might have also experienced the so-called “Waiting…” error. This error occurs when you attempt to download and install many apps at one time, according to OS X Daily.
To fix this, try the following:
Tap a single app icon so that it says “Paused” and then tap that app icon again to see if it resumes downloading
If pausing and resuming didn’t work: Reboot the iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch
While it’s not clear what causes this, it most likely is the result of Apple’s servers simply being hit more often than normal.
We thank OS X Daily for providing us with this tip.
