My iPhone 5 won't let me use my apps until I connect them with iTunes after downloading ios7. Solutions?

My iPhone 5 won't let me use my apps until I connect them with iTunes after downloading ios7.  There's just a thing that pops up and says that in order to activate banners and push notifications I have to connect the app with iTunes. The thing won't go away no matter how many times I push ok, and it doesn't give me another option. Solutions?

Oh my gosh I had the EXACT same problem, and for ages I couldn't figure out how to fix it until today. Here's what I did:
First I went onto my computer, opened itunes, and un-installed tumblr, vine and kik. These were the apps I was having problems with (it said I had them on my phone but, like you, they didn't show).
Then I went to the itunes store, searched for each one, and it said I could update them so I did (just FYI: for tumblr a window popped up saying "please click ok to confirm you are 17 years or older", so I did that also)
When I went back to my phone and tried installing them again (still on my computer), it worked!
I hope this helps, because it was incredibly frustrating. Good luck!

  • Won't let me use photo app

    My iPhone 4s wont let me access the photo app. When I try, I can initially go to it but when I click on "library" it just goes back to the home screen. It also won't let me take pictures (same thing happens.) why is it doing this and how can I fix it?

    Have you tried to force the Photos app to quit?
    4. Restart the application
    If the issue affects only a single app, try closing just that app:
    Press the Home button to return to the Home screen.
    Double-tap the Home button to display recent apps.
    Tap and hold the affected app until the red minus appears.
    Tap the red minus to quit the app.
    Press the Home button, then restart the app.
    If that doesn't do it, try restarting or restoring your iPhone.

  • ITunes keeps crashing and won't let me update to ios 5 + many more problems with iTunes

    Here is alist of all my problems:
    Whenever I try and sync my iPhone     to my computer it doesn’t work and then my iTunes crashes, there are no     error messages it just freezes and crashes.
    After I have done this my iTunes     doesn’t even open and crashes strait away.
    My iTunes also crashes     sometimes when I am just trying to move from (for example) music to     movies.
    My iTunes also refuses to     access iTunes store (no errors it just doesn’t work).
    Sometimes I can get past the     backup issue by cancelling the back up and letting it sync, but no it won’t     even let me do that it freezes and crashes before it can even transfer my purchases.    
    All thishappens if I can even open up my iTunes.
    I amcurrently running ios 4.3.4 as I can even update to ios 5 I am running (tryingto) iTunes 10.5.
    I have trieduninstalling and reinstalling iTunes about a 1000 time and it hasn’t doneanything (done as instructed on http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1923). I havebeen trough tones of pages on the community and on the other support pages thatapple has but I have found no answers. I have also tried to install an olderversion of iTunes but it just comes up with an error message saying all myfiles are configured to iTunes 10.5 and noting work on that either.
    This hasbeen going on for ages and I know there is a lot to deal with in this post butplease if anyone has any ideas, knows, or has dealt with any of the above please help.
    Thank you

    I am having the same problem. I'm wanting to update to iOS 7, the 'Update Now' button is available, but it says I can't download due to no Internet connection. I DO have an Internet connection, but either way it won't let me update. Help!

  • Iphone will not synch with itunes after downloading most recent itunes version

    I updated to most recent version of itunes and since then my 3GS iphone will not synch with itunes. the phone is recognized by my windows computer but not recognized within itunes. I redownloaded itunes and Q but nothing.  Can anyone help?

    I have a Dell XPS 8500 with a 64bit i5 Processor and an Apple 4s and I have the same problem.  I have been searching for days and can only get the phone recoginzed by disabling power to USB ports and there is no way I can get ITunes to show devices, so I can't see the IPhone.  People say Apple monitors these sites but I haven't seen any response from a technical person. Have you?  My hunch is they know about the problem but don't have a fix, and have other priorities for their team. If my hunch is correct, its quite extraordinay because I am close to selling my 4s and getting some phone which is easier to work with. Time is my scarcest resource and I have devoted way too much of it to this issue.

  • Itunes won't let me use the app store, or browse music. it says they are currently unavailable in the US store!? help!!!

    Can you toss us a bone and tell us what your set up is, such as what system version you are running? We can't really give you suggestions if you don't supply us with basic information.

  • TS3297 my I tunes on my new iphone won't let me down load apps or anything cause it wants a credit card how do I bypass this???

    It keeps declining my card, or any card I enter on itunes really.. how do I bypass this.. I'm new to apple iphone and need help with this?

    Unfortunately, you can't - you must have an active credit card on file in order to download anything to my knowledge.

  • HT4009 My iPhone won't let me buy in-app items it keeps telling me to contact iTunes support to complete the transaction when I do I get sent in circles

    Get iTunes support via Express Lane

  • I've reset my password and it still won't let me use the app store. It's saying it's "disabled"?

    How do I fix this?

    Have you had a charge returned on your card? Usually if the charge is returned to apple they will suspend your app store access until you pay the outstanding bill.

    Hey idontevenknowwhattodoaboutthis,
    It sounds like you may be having issues with a Wi-Fi connection. If you have determined that the issue is with your phone and not with the particular Wi-Fi hotspot you are using, then you will want to use the following article to help you troubleshoot this:

    Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities!

  • I have a iPhone but it won't let me use AirPlay. So I got this app ihome it says to put a sink iPod wire but there is no iPod sink wire

    Hi, not sure what you are asking about. Do you have speakers that use AirPlay and you can't connect your iPhone via AirPlay? That is most likely an issue with your wireless router. Sometimes it helps to switch the router off and on and let all devices connect again.
    If the app asks for a sync cable (not sink I suppose) it means the white USB cable that came with you iPhone and syncs via iTunes.

  • My iphone won't let me update or download apps and it keeps asking me to sign in and give different billing info.

    My iphone won't let me update or download apps and it keeps asking me to sign in and give different billing info.

    it declines it when u put in a different card that has $ available on it? have u updated the billing address to match the new card?
    also, u can try using an itunes gift card instead.

  • HT4759 I just updated my iPad to the new ios and now it won't let me use iCloud. I have been in my settings and it says I need to agree to the new t&c's but when I click to do it my device freezes. Any Idea what I can do as I can't download new app either

    Sorry. There's nothing anyone can do. The current version of the facebook app will not run on 4.2.1. The iPhone 3G won't run anything higher than 4.2.1. You're stuck.
    Maybe it's time to buy yourself a new iPod Touch.
