It's not in the list...
Yup... I can confirm that after powering the iPad off and turning back on... Fixed the issue. But it shouldn't be this way. Hopefully ios10 will fix this bug.
Exact same thing happened to me yesterday! I live in philly area too. I had to delete and reinstall all the ones that got stuck. What a painHello guys, I am trying to install an app and is not installing anything. See screenshot attached. It is just stuck in "waiting" forever... How I can resolve this issue? Thanks.
I've had that exact problem on and off for almost as long as iOS has existed so I wouldn't hold my breath. Fortunately it doesn't happen often and as you've discovered powering off (or a hard reboot sometimes) fixes the problem and normally it's a long time before it crops up again.
Try quitting the AppStore from the task switcher, putting your iPhone into airplane mode and doing a hard reboot. Doesn't always work, but worth a shot.
I hadn't tried that, so tried it now and it didn't work. I also tried turning on automatic app downloads and restarting. Still can't get it to delete.
