How to Update Apps on iPhone 5C

One of the best parts about owning an iPhone is your access to the App Store. From there you have a selection of thousands of apps, both paid and free, that can help you do a number of different things.

But the apps that you download aren’t “finished” and most of them will eventually require an update to either fix some problems, or add more features. Some apps may even stop working if you aren’t using the most current version. Fortunately you can update the apps on your device with a few simple steps.
