App Store Updates not Working: Recently some iPhone users discovered that their phones were not updating apps. App Store updates don’t seem to be pushing out. As a result, users are having trouble forcing them too. Are you the one from them?
What’s wrong with the app store update?
App Store Updates not Working: Certainly, in the last few days, something went wrong with the App Store update process at least for some iPhone users. Users are taking to social media and discussion forums to complain about apps that seem to be stuck waiting for updates.
Many complaints have popped up on Twitter:
A Tweet from ConceptTwo:
@AppleSupport Since updating my iPhone 11 and iPad Pro 9.7 to #iOS 13.2.3 and #iPadOS 13.2.3 all available app updates can no longer be installed from the App Store. Triggering them leads to an automatic stop w/o further feedback.

Among those victims is own dear leader, Sébastien:
New in iOS 13.2.3: even after restarting my iPhone, I cannot update apps at all. All I can do is watch the red badge on the App Store app increase as more updates become available.
I’m reaching Windows-like levels of frustration! https://t.co/tdQx3q3CCJ

It doesn’t look specific to iOS 13, either:
Is this a sneaky way to force me to upgrade to iOS 13, Apple?

iOS 13 has changed the app update behavior of iPhones. To make space for Apple Arcade Apple got rid of the Updates tab in the App Store app. In fact, it’s confusing enough that we even created a how-to so you can find your updates again:
UI changes to the App Store aside. But the issue of apps not updating when they’re assumed to be a completely different problem. A problem with no clear solution at present. Users have tried everything from force-quitting the App Store app to rebooting the iPhone, to sign in and out of Apple services again. But those troubles are still running into problems.
To add to the confusion, nothing happens to everyone. Even, my 13.2.3 update on my iPhone XR went just fine. But I was able to download any apps that essential to be updated without incident.
Sometimes it gives pause that there’s something afoot, either with the App Store or the update process, to cause these problems. People have been complaining to the Apple Support account on Twitter. But so far it doesn’t seem to be a consistent fix.
