    Not sure where to ask this - sort of pertains to the new phone - when there's an update to an app in the app store - do you have to delete the original and re-install?

    For instance PangeaVR has an update.

    Behind you!
    No, it'll do everything for you, whether you update from iTunes and then sync or update on the phone. Your data will carry over and everything, which is nice!

    So do I just download it again? Sorry, a bit confused.

    Yes, when you tap the update button the program will be automatically downloaded to your phone and replace the older version as soon as it is finished. The only thing you have to do during this entire process is tap the update button to start it.

    You do nothing.

    Like, literally. Nothing. It will do everything for you.

    In other words, don't worry about it!

    WTF? What could the update be fixing? It didn't add any features, so it must have been a fix?
