    Ever since I got my iPhone 8 Plus I have been having an issue with updates in the App Store. They won’t appear in my App Store but when I drag down to refresh and it showed up on my updates. The App Store is messed up and I don’t know what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I think it’s almost always been like that for me at least since iOS 10..

    It’s not the auto update so much as having to drag down to refresh to see if I even have any updates in the first place that is annoying. Even going to the app itself doesn’t say there is an update available

    It’s true that you have to pull down to refresh, which is annoying. I got used to pull down in most apps anyway that it doesn’t bother me anymore.

    I have auto update turned off because I only want apps to update when I'm connected to the internet at home, or secure wifi at work or family members' homes.

    The App Store should show which apps have a new update without having to pull down to refresh. That’s how it used to be

    I hear you.
    While some respondents are confusing the auto update with ‘refreshing’ the AppStore Update section to see if an app has an update is the case here, the truth is that AppStore doesn’t refresh anymore, every time you open the app. Whether it’s broken or intended, it’s something you should report either as feedback or bug report.

    I think you are one of the only people who knows what I am talking about lol. At least I know it’s not just me experiencing this bug. Thanks for letting me know

    Mine showed me I had updates yesterday, and when I got on wifi I updated them. So it does check, just don't think it checks that often, otherwise people would be complaining their battery life is suffering from constant hits on the App Store

    Mine shows updates all the time, and once in awhile it will auto update my apps. Be sure background refresh is enabled for it. I also allow the app store to use cellular data, although I doubt that makes any difference.

    Just noticed my badge. I’ll leave it and see if they update on their own.


    Edit: put it on WiFi and just checked, the badge is gone.

    How do you background refresh for the App Store? I’m getting frustrated at not knowing if I have updates

    You’re lucky. My badge doesn’t show when I have updates anymore. I have to refresh in the App Store for it to tell me if I have updates or not

    Stop refreshing and let it do its thing. If I check repeatedly it will show updates. It doesn’t work like a push notification immediately.

    Right, this is my experience as well. It seems that the App Store checks for updates periodically, not continuously. However, I agree that under iOS 10 and iOS 9, as I recall, if I went into the updates tab in the App Store it would check to see if there were more updates since the last check. In iOS 11, this doesn't happen (IIRC) unless I pull to refresh.

    I have no desire to have my apps update as soon as they are available; that's just my choice. And I am ok with the App Store not continuously checking for updates, too. I understand why people dislike this behavior, though.

    Exactly. It doesn’t show the updates at all unless you pull to refresh. I would like it to go back to how it used to be where it would say there was a new update without having to pull to refresh

    Again - if you wait long enough, the App Store checks for updates and badges the icons. It does for me, on both iPhone 6s and iPad Mini 4 on iOS 11.2 (actually, I think the Mini is still on 11.1.3.)

    It does on my iPad but not on my iPhone 8 Plus. I’m glad it works for you. I wish it worked for me. iPhone is on 11.2. I have yet to upgrade my iPad. I probably should though lol

    Guys keep in mind that some apps require a manual update, and other apps will just auto update by themselves. For example, BlizCon Mobile and Supercuts both require me to manually tap the update button. GarageBand, Mint, and Dropbox will auto update by themselves. It just depends on the app, and I honestly don't know how to tell ahead of time which app is auto and which is manual unless I look and try to remember. All of the ones I just mentioned were recent.

    How do you background refresh for the App Store? I’m getting frustrated at not knowing if I have updates
    Settings > General > Background Refresh. If you didn't already know about this then chances are it's already set to refresh. Unless you disabled it and forgot hehe.

    I have had four apps with updates today. None of which appeared until I dragged down to refresh my updates list. This is getting annoying

    Take a screenshot of what apps have updated.
    Give it 24 hours. Resist the urge to refresh.
    Check again.

    Are you on wifi most of the day?
