    I installed ios10 on my iPhone 6 - there are 6 apps that did not install. I can't delete them.
    They don't show up in general- usage either so I can't delete them there.
    I reset the phone, I signed out of iTunes, it's causing a lot of problems-
    My MacBook won't recognise the phone- probably because of these apps. I can't reset using MacBook.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes.

    The boxes say - waiting- but never do anything else.
    They wiggle with the x on the box, , but nothing else.

    Been using Apple since 2003 and iPhone since 2011, this is the only problem I've had with an iPhone- but it's a biggie to me

    Giving it some time to timeout any connection and having apps install in the background (which you dont hear or see really) .. turn the phone off for say 10 minutes, open it and just leave it alone. Most things will finish installing properly, reindexing will complete, etc.. and those wiating ones will suddenly work.

    Hey, thanks for the reply, I turned the phone off overnight, I turned it back on, no change as of yet...... the phone won't connect to the MacBook etc, because of an error, which I'm guessing is the downloads
