Just a quick note on how to get around a download from iTunes that gets stuck in a loop. This happened to me today whilst downloading a new podcast. The download would get right to the end, say “processing” then start all over, preventing the next podcast from coming down.
I found that I couldn’t pause, swipe to delete or do anything, and all the while this stuck download had my iPhone in overdrive, it was seriously hot and the battery was draining very quickly indeed.
Anyway, the following steps didn’t work for me. Closing iTunes, phone restart or plugging into iTunes on my laptop.
Here is the quick fix… Put the phone into flight mode, open iTunes and you should now be able to swipe the stuck podcast to the left and delete it. Simple 🙂
