Getting bored or annoyed by the auto-update option of apps from the Google Play, you might have turned it off. (If you are feeling so and have not done it yet, see our article on :How to disable auto-update of apps from the Google Play Store?). After disabling the auto-update of apps from the Google Play Store, no apps by any chance will update themselves, but still, the Play Store will check for the updates all the time, and give you the notification for the same. From this, you can see the list of apps that are ready to be updated, and you can choose whether to update them or not.
To manually update the apps from the Google Play Store, you can follow the following simple steps:
- Click on the Notification that you have got (which says that the apps are ready for update, and asks you to click on the notification to update them).
- After you click on that, you will be redirected to the Google Play Store app, where you will see the lists of all the apps, which you have installed in you device, under the ‘Installed’ category under the ‘My Apps’.
- There, the apps which are ready for update will appear on the top, followed by the recently updated apps. The apps which haven’t been updated for a long time, and haven’t got any updates either, will show up on the bottom.
- If you want a single app, or some particular apps to be updated, click on them individually, and then click on ‘Update’. Accept the terms and conditions, and then your desired app will be updated itself. If you want to update the whole bunch of apps (which have got the update) at once, click on ‘Update all’.
This method comes handy, when you have a limited data connection, and can not update all your apps at once (because of which you have disabled the auto-update of apps).
