This wikiHow teaches you how to keep the apps on your iPhone up to date using the App Store. Apps you've downloaded from the App Store should update automatically by default—if you've disabled this feature or want to disable it now, you can adjust your update preferences in the Settings app. If you turn off automatic updates, you can update apps manually at any time in the App Store.

Using Automatic Updates

  1. Open your iPhone's Settings . It's the gray gear icon on the home screen and/or in the App Library under "Utilities."
    • The apps on your iPhone are set to update automatically by default. If you'd rather be the one to decide when apps can update, you can turn automatic updates off.
  2. Scroll down and tap App Store. It's in the fourth group of settings.
  3. Use the "App Updates" switch to toggle on/off automatic updates. If the switch is green, apps will update automatically as new updates become available. If the switch is gray, updates must be installed manually. You can tap the switch to turn automatic updates on or off.
  4. Choose whether to allow automatic updates using mobile data. Scroll down to the "CELLULAR DATA" section, and then:
    • If you only want apps to update automatically when you're connected to Wi-Fi, toggle the switch next to "Automatic Downloads" to the Off (gray) position.
    • If you are okay with apps updating when you're using mobile data, toggle the switch to the On (green) position.

Updating Manually

  1. Open the App Store . It's the blue icon with a white "A" inside. You'll find it on the home screen, in the App Library, or by searching.
    • If you aren't connected to a Wi-Fi network, you may want to do so before you begin. Downloading app updates can use a lot of mobile data.
  2. Tap your initials or profile photo. It's in a circle at the top-right corner of the app.
    • If there are app updates that haven't yet installed, the number of updates appears in a smaller circle on top of your initials or profile photo.
    • Tap More at the bottom-right corner of an app with an update to see quick details about the update, including the version number and size of the update files.
  3. Scroll down to the "AVAILABLE UPDATES" section. If there are any apps that need updates, they'll appear in a list in this section. Each app with an update has its own "Update" button.
    • If you want to install all available updates at once, you can tap Update All just below the "AVAILABLE UPDATES" header.
    • If you don't see this section, no app updates are available.
  4. Tap UPDATE to start the update. A circle with a square inside of it replaces the "UPDATE" button and shows you the update's progress. When the update is complete, the app will move from the "AVAILABLE UPDATES" section to the "UPDATED RECENTLY" section below.
    • If you decide you want to stop an update after tapping UPDATE, tap the circle with a square inside—the UPDATE button will reappear once the update is canceled.
    • If an app becomes stuck while updating, try closing and re-opening the App Store. You may also try closing other apps or waiting for other updates to complete.
