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.
- Quick press “Volume Up“.
- Quick press “Volume Down“.
- Hold Sleep“/”Wake” button until the Apple logo appears.
- If the above steps do not work, press and hold the “Sleep“/”Wake” button and the “Volume Down“ button simultaneously for about 10 to 20 seconds. Hopefully, the Apple logo will appear and the iPhone will finally turn restart.
You will see the white Apple logo, and the apps should continue to install.
