"Forcing" Windows Phone 8.1 App updates

Unless you also use Android and iOS devices, you won't notice that app updates for Windows Phone 8.1 don't come as regularly and are hardly persistent. However, they do come just as often but Windows Phone 8.1 won't necessarily install them even if you set the device to install updates automatically.

To "force" Windows Phone 8.1 to check for app updates and install them:

1. Launch Microsoft Store. Tap Options > Settings.


2. In the Settings screen, scroll to the bottom and tap Check for updates.


3.  Tap OK.


4. The notification center will inform you once apps have been updated.
