Quick Tip: Updating Apps in iOS/iPadOS 13

In the past, updating apps was simple because you only had to open the App Store app, and go to the Updates tab. Now, Apple has decided to make updates less prominent by moving the updates area to a new section on each tab of the App Store. Here’s how to find your updates now.

  1. Open the App Store
  2. In the top right, find the My Account button and activate it.
  3. Find the section heading that says upcoming automatic updates.
  4. You will then find the familiar options from the updates tab like update all, and the ability to update individual apps.

Apple has deemphasized the updates tab as updates should be a quiet aspect that just happens, but it is important to know where your updates happen in case you need to avoid the update of a certain app.

It is also important to remember that you can disable automatic updates in the settings app under App Store.
