    So this obviously isn't something major. It's more of just a preference and it kinda messes with my OCD cause I like things to work certain ways. For some reason on every iOS device I've owned thus far (converted to iOS back when the iPhone 6 Plus came out) whenever I go to the update tab of the AppStore, there's always been an "Update All" button. My iPhone 6 Plus, and my current iPhone 6S had it. Even the 5S I used temporarily until I got my 6S, when my 6Plus got jacked. It had it. My iPad Air had it, but now my new iPad Mini I just got for free when I bought my iPhone 6S back in December. It makes me click individually on each app to update them.

    So I'm wondering if this is something to do with the new version of iOS for iPad or if it some setting I may have accidentally unchecked. Tho I am pretty tech savvy and looked through every option on my iPad and have yet to find an options pertaining to it. So I would think if that was the case I would've found it, but you never know. I could've overlooked it.

    After doing a google search all I could find was a few people complaining of the same thing back when iOS 9 was current, and they all were able to fix it by restarting my their tablets. I've obviously tried that. Generally restarting is the first fix I try for most issues I run into on any device. Also tried logging out and back in of my iCloud/iTunes account. All to no avail. Hoping one of you fine people may have a suggestion cause for some reason it really annoys me that it's gone and I have to hit update on every individual app.

    So there is no updates available right now but this is the page I'm talking about where you usually have the option of updating each app individually or "Update All". As I'm sure you all are aware. The option is there on my iPhone 6S 128GB, but is gone on my iPad Mini 2 32GB mini.

    As I mentioned, I tried restarting the tablet itself. Restarting the AppStore itself. All with no luck.

    The link works for the screenshot but for some reason the thumbnail itself isn't showing up. So just use the link above instead

    In the screenshot you provided, "Update All" is not there because all of your apps are up to date already. Do you have the setting turned on to automatically update apps? (Settings, iTunes & App Store, Updates option).
    If that's not the case and the option is still not there when you do have apps with an "Update" button, then perhaps try a "Reset all Settings".
