I have always updated my application on iTunes and then let them sync to the iPad.

Since I installed iOS 10.3.3, the apps no longer sync. I have rebooted the device. I have attempted to sync many times.

The App Store on the iPad shows pending updates, but they never install.

What am I missing?

  • Is your sync connection usb or wifi?

The obvious thing to try first is to reset your privacy and location preferences. You will then be asked to trust the iTunes/computer drivers (and asked to set privacy settings elsewhere as they come up).

At that point, the issue is almost certainly on the computer end with iTunes or iTunes settings or the os/usb hardware and drivers. Starting with a review of iTunes settings and looking for specific sync errors would be good to start.

  • Resetting the privacy settings in the iPad yielded no results.

  • And I'm not missing anything in iTunes on my computer.

  • You’ll probably have to go through the second article step by step then. Can you even install a file after verifying steps 1, 2, 3 of HT20135? If so, following the article and all the links should get you to a specific failure code or step to fix.
