The apps that you can download from the App Store on your iPhone 5 can do a number of excellent things that wouldn’t be possible with the default settings and features that come with the device. But these apps are not perfect, and the developers that created them will periodically release updates to fix problems or add new features. Because these updates will usually improve the app, it is recommended that you download them. But a lot of people will wait to install new app updates, which often results in multiple updates being available for the apps on the device. Luckily there is a simple way to update all of them at once.
