    I installed i OS6 just fine on my iPhone 4. Went to update the myriad of apps that needed to be updated and they have been 'downloading' for 7 hours now.

    I have rebooted, reset settings, and done many basic trouble shooting like logging out of App store etc.

    But for the life of me, I cannot get my iPhone to actually download these apps.

    At first I thought it was heavy traffic and use but my 4S did just fine.

    Any one else experience this?

    Same problem here. At first my home wifi directed me to an apple 404 error page.
    So after almost stamping on my phone with a size 12 combat boot I gave it another chance.

    Connect eventually to 15 apps needing ios6 refreshments.
    For 12 hours iv3 had unusable icons "in profess" on my screen.

    Must say its tarnishes my otherwise spot on like for apple.

    Found a solution that works for me. Pause a separate app by clicking on it and start the download again by pressing it again. Peace of cake :)

    Apps won't download and stall after iOS 6 update

    Alas, that is not even an option for me. Click on the 'hung' apps and cannot pause. Yes, normally that would work but this is some new beast.

    Apps won't update

    Easy fix....go to each individual app on your main screen and tap on it-it will give you a message that the download failed. Do ths with each app that isn't downloading. This same message will appear on each individual app. Go back to your app application and hit update-it then updates your apps!
