In the case of having an iPhone, the updates will be made from the application store of the iOS operating system, which is known as the App Store.

When accessing it, by default you will appear on the ‘Today’ screen and you must access your account icon from the profile picture on the top right of the screen.

The first thing to do is access the App Store

When entering the ‘Account’ section, you will find all the information about your App Store profile. At the bottom of the screen, you will find a list in which all the applications that are pending updating appear. Generally and by default, the devices update themselves overnight and connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Once inside this section, it is advisable to refresh the screen by sliding your finger down, in this way the App Store will search for the latest pending updates. It is likely that some very recent one was missing to be included in the list.

Then you have to enter our account from the profile picture in the upper right corner

Once the screen is updated, you have to access ‘Next automatic updates’, here all the applications with pending updates will be. Selecting ‘Update All’ will force all updates at once and ensure all your apps are up to date.

Another option is to do it individually, for example, by searching for the WhatsApp platform in the list and clicking on ‘Update’, an option that is located to the right of each application.

If you don’t see the update you’re looking for, you can try to refresh the screen again by swiping down after a few minutes. Another option is to manually check for new updates, although the most comfortable option is to wait for the device to update each application on its own.
