Additional Information

While the option to automatically update all of your apps can be useful, you may discover that there are some programs that you do not wish to update.

If this is the case, you cannot use the automatic app update option because it cannot be set not to update specific apps.

You must manually update apps by opening the App Store app, tapping your profile symbol in the top-right corner of the screen, and then tapping the Update button to the right of any app that needs updating.

You can also use the Update All option to apply all of the available app updates.

If you have allowed the option to automatically update your apps, you may want to change the settings in the Cellular Data area of the Settings > App Store menu if you only wish to update apps over Wi-Fi.

Because the updates can be fairly substantial, they can consume a significant amount of cellular data if you have enabled that setting.


It is critical to keep the apps on your iPhone up to date not only to keep them secure and effective but also to take advantage of new features that may have been added.

However, whether you chose to let your iPhone manage all of your app updates or use the manual option via the App Store app, you have complete control over how these updates occur on the device.
