Note that this is going to install all of the available updates that are listed on the Updates tab of the App Store. If you do not want to install a particular update, then you will need to install of your available updates manually. But if you had previously been installing all of the updates individually, then this can save you some time and a lot of frustration. Additionally, app updates can use a lot of data. If you are installing multiple updates, it is usually a good idea to do so over a Wi-Fi connection to avoid using a lot of the data from your data plan.
Step 1: Touch the App Store icon.
