Take a look at this screenshot. I tried installing apps on my Apple iPhone, and I received a trifecta problem where the apps were stuck “Installing”, “Waiting”, and “Loading”.
Fortunately, I’m usually able to fix this problem where the apps won’t fully install with these fixes.
Fix 1 – Toggle Network Connection Off and On
Simply disconnecting from the network, then re-connecting usually takes care of this problem. The easiest way to accomplish this is to enable, then disable Airplane Mode.
- Go to “Settings” and turn “Airplane Mode” to “On“. Wait 10 seconds, then turn it off.
Most of the time, the apps will complete the installation.
Fix 2 – Soft Reset
Restart your Apple device by performing a soft reset. Your data will not be lost with a soft reset.
- Press and hold the “Power” and “Home” buttons simultaneously until the device restarts.
You will see the white Apple logo, and the apps should continue to install.
