As we know that already by now, that iOS 7 has come to the World with lot many new features and changes as compared to the previous operating system iOS 6. With the change of appearance some changes in handling have also come in play for you. Some guidance from our side can be of great help who don’t want to waste their precious time in learning iOS 7 from the onset.
We are going to tell you How to turn off automatic application updates on iOS 7. We have specifically focused on this tutorial because Apps Hub primarily deals with applications with a more focus on iOS apps. The new iOS 7 has come with a feature where you have the option to automatically update your apps without going on to the app store manually by checking for updates. For many users this is a good thing to get ahead, because it takes the trouble to update and manage their applications, and only need to use the App Store to download new applications to your site. No doubt its a great new feature but at the same time it causes some problems for users. As some of the updates are huge and in case your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch is on 3G, it may cost you a lot of money for a minor update. But if you are on Wifi, its blessing to have your apps updated automatically. However, you never know when a new update arrives and your device starts updating itself. Another reason for why you do not need to update automatically is that whether you’re trying to squeezes maximum performance out of a device, reduce overall network bandwidth used by an iPhone or iPad, or perhaps you would just prefer to control the app updating process yourself.
So the solution to this problem is to update your device manually instead of automatic. This may take your few minutes everyday but this step will save your money. Also if the app is not updated as and when the update is released, I don’t think it makes any difference. You can update your apps even few days later whenever you want (or whenever you actually desire to use them).
Turn Off Automatic App Updates on iOS 7
Luckily, there is an easy way to turn the automatic updates feature off and here’s how to do it:
- Open the Settings app on your device.
- From there navigate to iTunes & App Store pane, and open it.
- Scroll down to the Automatic downloads section.
- Switch the Updates tab to the “off” position (the switch will only show white, and no green).
Turn Automatic App Updates On For Wifi Only
If you prefer to leave automatic updates on wifi for preventing cellular data connection bandwidth overuse, you can do that too with a simple adjustment in the “iTunes & App Store” Configuration: Simply hold automatic downloads “updates” switch to ON, but switching between “Use Cellular Data” OFF. Unless you have an unlimited wireless data plan with the iPhone or iPad, it’s probably a good idea to keep updating cell data completely. Not everyone can have a data plan that can support automatically updating applications on a cellular connection.
