If you’re an iPhone or iPad user, you might have encountered a problem where the App Store is not showing updates notifications. This can be frustrating if you want to keep your apps up-to-date. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to fix this issue.
First, go to the Settings app on your device and navigate to the App Store section. Under the “Automatic Downloads” section, make sure that the “App Updates” toggle is turned off. If it’s turned on, your device will automatically download app updates whenever you’re connected to the internet, and you won’t see the updates notification.
If the toggle is off and you’re still not seeing the updates notification, go to the App Store app and tap on your profile picture at the top right corner. From there, tap on “Notifications” and make sure that the “Allow Notifications on This iPhone” link is visible. If it’s not visible, tap on the link to allow notifications. This will make the notification section visible in the App Store.
Once you’ve enabled the notifications, go back to the home screen, and you should see the updates badge icon on the App Store icon. If you still don’t see the notifications option in the App Store when you tap on the profile picture, you can try resetting your device’s location and privacy settings. This should flush out all the notification or badge icon related issues across the system and fix any other apps that have similar problems.
Finally, make sure to check your app notification settings for each app individually. If you don’t see the notification option for a specific app, it’s possible that you accidentally selected “Don’t Allow” when prompted to allow notifications. To fix this, simply go to the app’s settings and enable notifications.
By following these steps, you should be able to fix the App Store not showing updates notifications problem on your iPhone or iPad. Don’t forget to share this article with your friends if you found it helpful!
