Simple iOS Troubleshooting: Updating and Troubleshooting issues with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch Apps
Your iPad will let you know if there are any available updates to the Apps you have installed on your iPad. You should always update applications when an update is released. Developers release updates to introduce new features and to fix known issues with the apps. In General you should never have to pay to update an application. Although Apple has been known to charge rarely for their iOS updates for older devices.
On your device, a notification will appear over the App Store or the folder the App Store is located in. It will be a little number inside a red circle. The number represents the number a]of updates available. Another way to see if you have any updates available on your computer is to check in the Apps section of the library in iTunes. It will also notify you if you have updates.
Update from your computer
Do as Follows:
To see which apps have updates available, click on the apps section of the library in iTunes. It will show you a list of apps that have updates available. You will have the option to update an app by itself or update all of them at once. Your iPad apps will be up to date on the iPad the next time you sync your iPad with iTunes.
To update your Apps from your iPad
Do as follows:
Tap the App Store and then click on the updates section. Tap the name of the app that needs an update. Or you can update all.
Your iPad will prompt you for your Apple ID. Enter it and the application should update shortly. You should be connected to WIFI when you do this to avoid charges and because it is probably way faster.
You really shouldn't be having many issues with your iPhone or iPad apps but from time to time issues do happen. There is definitely some troubleshooting you can do with apps but it is limited to about three things.
When things do go wrong:
Check for Updates. Developers will release Beta versions of Apps and correct them later with updates to make money.
You should first turn your iPad off and back on. Sometimes when installing something you just have to do a restart. Just like a computer in a sense.
If the Issue continues the app might have become corrupted, you should delete the application and re download it from the app store. As long as you are signed in to the same Apple ID you should not have to pay again.
