Hello

I have automatic updates switched on and the App Store is switched on in background app refresh. However, on my iPad, apps are never automatically updated, even with these settings on. I only ever find out there are a load of updates when I open the App Store and they suddenly show.

Does anyone know how to get it to update in the background without me opening the App Store?

Many thanks

M.

Has to be plugged in and on wifi to automatically update.

I never have apps update automatically on the iPad or the iPhone.

Where is this setting? I don't see anything under the app list under settings for App Store to enable background refresh.

The actual iTunes and App Store setting just under privacy gives me the option to enable updates. That's checked.
