    My mom shares her itunes purchases with me, we have been doing this since 2012, i just replaced a iphone and found apps hanging during install, i tried re installing them and got errors such as you can no longer share this app., anyone know how to fix it?

    Not sure what you mean by "can no longer share" an app. If you are sharing an iTunes account, just find it in the App Store and download it again.

    Did you changed the apple ID on the new phone? Did you meant you are part of the family sharing and now are using another email in the new phone?

    Disconnect your iCloud from your new phone and resign in with it.

    Settings > General > iPhone Storage

    Tap the app causing issues, tap Offload. Re-install from App Store.
