I am on iOS 12.4 and everything was working great until I wanted to use my wife’s Apple Music on my iPhone.
It was a temporary log in with her Apple ID to download music straight to my phone for offline play, it stated a warning about something that I didn’t really care to read, got the music I wanted and logged back into my Apple ID.
A week went by and when I tried to update apps it just cycles around and round but doesn’t download it.
Any clue on how to fix it? (Other than resetting iPhone)

Restart the phone and try again. Check what Apple ID is used for the App Store. Best success!

Yes it just finally worked after I restarted my iPhone.
I had to hold home/sleep button until the Apple logo appeared. I used to just hold both buttons down until it shifted the phone off.

Usually you just need that double button push in situations where the phone is completely unresponsive. For anything else a regular restart does the same thing but powers the device down safely rather than just plain restarting as if you removed the battery.

Happy to hear it’s working again!

Thanks!!
Usually I would hold buttons til it shuts and wait couple minutes before turning back on, but for some reason now when I held buttons til the blank screen id let go, but the phone would automatically restart. So I did it different the last time and worked how I explained.
Happy it works because some of my apps I used daily required update for me to use.
