iOS 13 comes loaded with new features, but some have not been so announced by Apple as it has happened, for example, with the dark mode or other more striking features. That is why, among the secrets of Apple’s operating system, we find some design changes that can complicate the lives of users. One of the most commented is the disappearance of the Updates tab in the App Store.
Since iOS has an app store, the process to manually update the apps has remained more or less unchanged, with a tab dedicated to them in the lower section of the App Store. There, in versions prior to iOS 13, you can enter and choose the applications to update or update them all at once. However, with the latest version of Apple’s mobile software, this tab has not disappeared, but it has changed its location.
How To Manually Update Apps In iOS 13?
There are two ways. The first is to use 3D Touch in the devices compatible with this technology to update all the apps through the App Store quick action from the home screen. The second is to do it from the app store, locating the location of the updates section.
In previous versions of iOS, there was an icon that shows a notification with pending updates. Now in iOS 13, you will see that same information about your profile picture in the upper right part of any tab. As you can guess, it is within your profile where you will find the section to update the apps in the operating system manually.
When you open the options page of your profile, look for the “Available Updates” section, which will look almost exactly like the “Updates” tab in iOS 12 and older operating systems. As with the pending update card in previous versions of the software, you have the option ” More” next to an application to see more details about it, such as its version number or the included news.
An interesting addition to this page in iOS 13 is that you can now slide over an application in the list to remove it from your iPhone, a new interesting feature that allows you to save space from the iOS updates tab itself.
