Problems updating apps on ios 7
If you are holding a relatively old i Phone 4/4s or i Pad 2/i Pad 3, and you are keeping i OS 8/8.2/8.3/8.4 on your device, you won't want to miss this post. To get you around some of the size requirement, you can install i OS 8 via i Tunes on computer, instead of updating on your device directly.Based on the problems that i OS 8 users have reported, like Touch ID issues, battery problems, Wi-Fi connectivity problems, Bluetooth problems, App issues, etc. Upgrading on i OS device means the installation package will be downloaded to your device.If you’re stuck on i OS 9.3.5, you can’t download i OS 10 in an effort to fix problems. Those of you on i OS 9 by choice should consider upgrading to i OS 10 if trouble strikes.If you can’t get off i OS 9 or don’t want to upgrade to i OS 10, here’s list of potential fixes for your i OS 9 problems.
Unfortunately, if you’ve got an i Phone 4S, i Pad 3, i Pad 2 or i Pad Mini 1, you’re fresh out of luck.
Since the 10th October pressing the "UPDATE" button causes the app to be loaded instead.
I went to try this on my other devices and got exactly the same result.
Apparently this is fixed with version 7.1 up, but I do not think I can upgrade to that version and keep my jailbreak now as Apple have probably stopped digitally signing that version.
I will probably have to wait until i OS 8 jailbreak before I get this fixed.
This is odd because some of the devices haven't had any Cydia or App Store updates for ages.
