Automatic downloads in i OS allow apps, as well as other items, to be updated automatically.
This may seem handy, but they can also be problematic because they may use your mobile data without you realizing it.
But if the website doesn't open and Safari throws an error, there could be two possibilities: the network is down or the connection is slow.
If both these things do not fix your issue, it could be a problem at Apple's end.
i Phone 7 Plus with i OS 10.3.1 I had three apps that were experiencing issues with updating.• Once again, I returned to the Home Screen and found blue dots next to the applications noting their updated status. The screen flashed white to indicate the cache clearing.• Curious as to what was occurring, I immediately returned to the App Store. By checking the updated dates, I determined these were not new updates. I returned to the Updates tab and determined the problem above persisted. On the i Phone 7 Plus, this is done by holding down the power button and the volume-down button until the Apple Logo appears, then release.I was not sure if this was an additional, more recent update. The problem described above persisted despite the apps being reinstalled.I touched "Update All" again, and all three apps appeared to update again. • I went to the App Store and cleared the cache by tapping the bottom navigation bar 10 times.
