iPad waiting icon

Posted by John Cowburn on Saturday, June 18, 2011 Under: Software & IT-related



Should a "waiting" icon appear as an App on your iPad, and refuse to be deleted even after doing the icon jiggling trick (no "x" will appear) - it is likely waiting for a wi-fi connection in order to download a file larger than the 3G limit (about 20 MB.) Either connect to a wi-fi network to complete the download, or:

  • sign out of the App Store
  • do a hard shutdown (i.e. hold down Home and on/off buttons simultaneously, and do not use the slide to switch off: it will eventually power down by continuing to hold those 2 buttons)
  • Wait a few seconds then power on again
  • The "waiting" icon ought to have disappeared
