    After updating my Apple TV 4 to the latest OS, app no longer update automatically even though my Apple TV is set to automatically update apps (I've checked twice).
    Also, the App store app no longer shows a "last updated" section.
    To update apps now I have to find the app page on the app store and there, if an update is available, I need to click the update icon.

    Anybody having the same problem?

    I dread doing that so that will be the last resort for me

    I haven't checked if apps aren't being updated, but I have not see the "last updated" section in the App Store since I updated either.

    Edit: Just looked and most of my apps appear to be up to date. I saw that HBO GO and STARZ both updated on July 25th, and I believe I did update before then.

    For me, the last updated section is also gone (there was a thread here about that, so I guess it's everyone)

    Apps do update automatically though, as I've randomly seen the blue dot pop up.
    That's how I noticed the other screen was gone, as I went to see what the changes were.

    Thank you for responding. I noticed they did not update for me but I was out of town since the day Apple released the update so just got the chance to update the OS. One thing I saw with the prior update as well is the fact that the home screen lags a lot when scrolling while a new update is available to download. As a matter of fact I have no choice but to update because of this
