iOS has long stopped automatic updates on apps for some time now, regardless of whether or not your “Automatic Updates” button is selected to the “on” position. They never auto-updated all throughout iOS 11 and iOS 10. Now that we’re on iOS 12, it would appear that Apple gives zero fu*ks about addressing this complaint from many different iOS users anytime soon. All you can do is manually check perodically when you go to the app store to maybe download a new app, or something equivilant to that.

Updating apps turns off when I sign out of iCloud and then back in. I turn it on but still my phone (iPhone CS Max) does not automatically update my apps. Advise?? [email protected]
