    3 apps on my ipad have turned from icons into grey boxes with lines in them. When I click on them, they try updating but it doesn't complete. What's going on here? Is this some kind of virus?

    Either the apps have been pulled from the App Store for some reason or they are not compatible with your new iOS (likely 8.3).

    I doubt there are any viruses for iOS. Due to the way iOS is designed, writing a virus would be a waste of time.

    Yeah, it's not a virus.
