Check Your Data Connection
Confirm your iPhone is connected to a wireless or data connection. Open “Settings” from the Home screen and then turn off “Airplane Mode,” if applicable. If you’re not in your home or office, or if you don’t have access to a public hot spot, open the “Cellular” menu and confirm Cellular Data is turned on. If you are within range of an available wireless network, open the “Wi-Fi” menu and make sure your device is connected to your local hot spot. If the signal bar for your network indicates a poor connection, try moving closer to your router or access point.
Sign In to Your Apple ID
To download and install apps from the App Store, you must first log in to your Apple ID. If you paused an installation and then resumed it later, your session may have timed out. Similarly, you may have entered your password incorrectly too many times, causing the App Store to halt all downloads. In the App Store, touch “Featured” and then scroll to the bottom page. Touch your account name and then select “View Apple ID.” If your session has timed out, iOS will prompt you to re-enter your password. If you can’t remember your login credentials, touch “iForgot” and follow the onscreen prompts.

If you’re connected to the Internet and are signed in to your Apple ID, the download function in the App Store may be frozen. To forcibly close the app, press the Home button twice to bring up the task switcher and then swipe up on the screenshot above the App Store.

If the problem persists, power your device off and then on again; this may clear any bugs affecting iOS from the device’s memory.
