JW Library not Updating on Ipad

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

My Mum's study doesn't have internet so every few months I update the publications on her ipad 4. Today the app would not update on the home screen.

Last update was in February. Ipad is running IOS 10.3.3. 

I thought the app must have been corrupted somehow so I deleted it and reinstalled it.

I wish I hadn't done that :(

It still won't update but because it is a new install it has next to nothing on it.

I found a link on this site about using workflow to get publications into the app so I have put all the latest stuff on.

I downloaded the music she likes into the music app and some talks into VLC player

but I would really like to get the app to update.

I asked my son about it and he is having the same problem with the ipads of some of his studies too.

Anyone have any ideas?

Scary to think it could just pack up like that. All I can think of is pulling down on the Home page of JW Library and seeing the latest date at the top and forcing a refresh, but I’m sure you’ve done that.

Thanks for replying. Yes I repeatedly tried that 😀

But lo and behold I tried it one last time before the meeting this morning and it worked!

No idea why it didn’t work yesterday. 

Just as well I woke early as it took over an hour to download everything.

phew glad that’s over 👌

JWLibrary on my father's iPad was glitching the other day. On the Home Screen, instead of showing Favorites, the ToolBox, Whats New, etc, it was all blank with a message "There is nothing new to show here". It was working again at a later time.


I think it was just having difficulty connecting to JW.org and downloading the latest information. Maybe the connection was bad or the server was busy.
