Update Apps - iOS
How to update apps on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod. Most apps update automatically, but some require manual updates.

Step 1: Locate the App Store icon on your device. If there is a red number above the icon, an app needs to be updated. Tap the App Store icon to update the app(s).

Step 2: Tap the Account Icon in the top right corner to view the apps that need updated. The number of apps that require updates is shown in the red alert bubble.

Step 3: In this account menu, you can find a list of available updates (this list only appears when there are apps that require updates). Update an individual app by tapping the update button next to that app, or tap Update All to update all of the apps simultaneously.

Step 4: Enter your Apple ID Password, if prompted.

Step 5: The apps will indicate that they are updating.

Step 6: On your home screen, the apps will indicate that they are updating. They will go back to normal and the number icon will disappear from the App Store icon when everything is finished updating.
