    I have enabled auto updates on my iPhone 7+ for WiFi, however I have notifications of numerous updates but then when I come home, it connects to my WiFi, they never update. I still have to press the "update all" to get them all updated.

    I thought the point was they would just auto update workout me having to press this?

    Same thing happens to mine. It used to work no problem last year. Seems like the past few months I am having to always press to update manually.

    Same here on my iPhone & iPad. I'll go into the App Store and find I have up to 20 updates waiting for me. On the latest iOS and it's been like this for months now.

    I think it only updates when the charger is connected.

    I have the same issue - iPhone 7 on wifi and plugged in. Go into the App Store and there are half a dozen apps with an update available. Clicking Update All started the update process. This happens every time.

    Same here also. As far as I can tell my apps never auto update. I don't go in the app store very often and when I do I find I have loads of apps waiting for updates!

    On my iPhone 5S, I have to click "update all", then wriggle the screen around with my finger, because if the screen times out, everything stops updating.
