    I hoping to find some help on this issue. I got an 6s yesterday and did the typical restore from previous backup (my iphone 6) and now about 1/3 of my apps are "blacked out". I tap on them and get waiting messaging but nothing happens. I have read some ways to fix this is to delete and re-download the app, but i really dont want to do that for about 40 apps. Any other ways to fix this?

    Do you have two various AppleIDs? Were the dark apps bought with an older AppleID?

    If you don't want to delete and redownload the app I was able to fix this exact problem on my phone by going to the "Purchased" tab in the Store and clicking the download arrow on apps that weren't on my phone.
