    I am running a iPad Air 2 with 8.1.2 jailbroken with Taig, and I just realised that none of my installed apps have been updated through the app store since 22nd December.

    I am new to the world of iOS and just wondered if this was normal? I would normally have at least a couple of app updates every couple of days on Android?

    Cheers

    The amount of app updates on Android is ridiculous. Every time I switch my tablet on there are numerous app updates whirring away! They are much less frequent with iOS.

    That's because App developers on Android have to make their apps work on like 10,000 different phones so updates come much faster.

    With Android, developers can just submit their app updates to the Play Store and they are available basically instantly to everyone for update, which has benefits and also disadvantages (Google not checking the app/app update) theres really no submission process on the Play Store for developers.

    On iOS, the developer has to submit it to Apple the app or app update, whatever it may be, and Apple checks and scans the app out for any malware/violations of rules/etc then it puts it on the iOS app store, all which can take a few days, but I like this way better because it ensure's the app has no malware/anything bad, unlike the Play Store where fake apps always hit the Play Store and even malware can hide in legitmate apps sometimes

    App developers need time off as well. The holidays will slow things down quite a bit. Every now and then you'll have an app update come through but you won't see a lot of activity until the after the first of the year

    Disagree, coming from XDA Developers Forum I think most are Super Human. Able to work "30" hours a day and require no rest or food. ;):)
