This seems to be more of a problem for older devices like the iPhone 4 and iPad 2, but it should work for newer devices nonetheless.

  • Sign out of your Apple Account.
  • Eject your iPhone and Quit iTunes.
  • Go to Settings > General > Reset and Reset Network settings.
  • Restart your iPhone (hold the Sleep button and Home button).
  • Log back into your iTunes account and start your downloads again.

Boom, pow, done.
