How to Manually Update Windows 10 Mobile Apps

We’ve been covering the evolution of Windows 10 Mobile the past year, and we hope to see the final version roll out to Windows Phone 8.1 users soon. Windows 10 Mobile is preinstalled already on the Lumia 950 or 950XL. If you’re a Windows 10 Mobile Insider, then you also have one of the preview versions.

While the app situation on Windows Phone still needs some work, there are still quality apps available for it. And just like with Windows Phone 8.1, they should update automatically by default. However, if you learn about an update that’s a must have, and don’t want to wait for it, you can manually get it.

Manually Update Windows 10 Mobile Apps

On your phone open the Store and tap Settings (hamburger menu) located at the top left of the screen. Then tap Downloads and updates from the list.

Then on the next screen tap the Check for Updates button and wait while updates are found and select the Update all link.

Of course, you can update apps individually, too. Keep in mind that updates for apps like Microsoft Office can be quite large, so you might want to make sure that you connect to Wi-Fi before updating them, so you don’t eat into your data plan too much.
