Your iPhone is full of apps, which occasionally come with a new version. Usually, you have to update them manually. There’s no need for that, because there’s a feature on your smartphone that already does all the work for you.
Automatic updates not only make your iPhone better, but also more secure. If you enable automatic app updates, your apps are automatically updated as soon as new updates are available. It ensures that you always have the latest version of your favorite apps, including new security features.
Here’s how to enable automatic updates on your iPhone
Enabling this handy feature is not difficult. But you just need to know where to find it. That way, you’ll never have to search for new updates on your iPhone again. It will save you quite a bit of time and energy.
To enable automatic app updates, go to your iPhone’s settings and tap “App Store.” Scroll down and make sure the switch next to “App updates” is turned on. This way, your apps will be automatically updated without you having to do anything. It’s that simple.

What do you do with apps you don’t use?
The feature is especially nice with apps you use a lot. Apps you don’t use are actually a burden on your smartphone. That’s because they take up a lot of storage space, which makes your iPhone slower. And you run the risk of your device breaking down faster.
Apple has come up with something on that, too. In the form of the Clear apps feature. The feature on your iPhone automatically deletes apps you’re not using to free up memory. It’s a handy option if you’re desperate for extra storage space.
If you later regret it, you can easily reinstall and sync apps again. We’ll explain exactly how that all works in the article below:
