As soon as a new version of a program is released, the system downloads and installs it without requesting permission from the user. On the one hand, automatic updating is very convenient, because you do not need to constantly perform the same procedure.
How to enable or disable automatic application updates on iPhone and iPad
On the other hand, some iPhone and iPad owners may not like the lack of a sense of control over what is being downloaded to the device. If desired, the user can turn off automatic updates. It is quite easy to do this.
How to enable / disable the automatic update feature in iOS
- Open the Settings application.
- Go to the App Store, iTunes Store.
- Scroll through the “Automatic downloads” section and, depending on the need, activate or deactivate the “Programs” and “Updates” items.
The solution is also available for those who want to use the automatic update feature, but do not want to spend mobile traffic. The developers have provided the possibility of automatic updating only with active connection to a Wi-Fi network.
You can configure the automatic update via Wi-Fi as follows: below in this section you need to disable the “Cellular data” toggle switch. Now when you connect your smartphone to Wi-Fi applications will automatically update, and once again think about the safety of mobile traffic will not have to.
Unfortunately, the developers did not provide for the possibility of selective automatic updating, so you will not be able to configure the function for any specific applications.
In general, automatic updating is a useful thing, but sometimes it complicates the user’s life. As a rule, in new versions of application developers eliminate the flaws of previous releases, but sometimes updates are still errors that can worsen the work of the iPhone or iPad.
