To make room for the new1; and that's not so obvious. tab in the App Store, Apple had to make a tough decision. Which tab must go? In the end, the Updates tab got its start. That doesn't mean you can't update your apps anymore. It just means that where you go to update your apps has changed ̵
If you are the type who never updates your apps and lives with a constant message badge on the App Store icon, I can't help you, except to say keeping apps current also ensures they are the most secure and perform the best they can.
Thankfully, app updates are still easy to come by, you just need to know where to look for youror what device is running iOS 13 for that matter.
To update your apps on iOS 13:
- To see ongoing updates, open the App Store on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
- Touch your profile icon .
- All available updates are displayed under the Personal Recommendations button. If no updates are displayed, you can drag down to refresh the page and force your device to check for updates.
If you have updates, you can either update them individually or press the Update All button and call it a day. Not only are app updates somewhat hidden, so. Swipe left over an app you no longer want to delete.
