“My iPhone keeps updating apps over and over again! Is there any fix to this annoying problem?”

“Just as I turn on the data and open App Store, apps are constantly updating on my iPhone? How can I to stop this issue?”

We have got quite a lot of questions and eventually many complaints about the iPhone keeps updating apps continuously. The main issue lies on the fact that the main App Store shows updates but all apps are up to date. It happens when you quit the App Store after updating an App and when you again open it. It forgets that you updated it and again lists itself for updating. So how can you fix this issue? Take a look and have a try!

Way 1: Fix iPhone App Keeps Updating with Involving Spotlight

In our tests and with some users’ feedback, we have found that involving Spotlight is helping matters. But the real issue is App Store.

First, delete any extra drives or clones containing applications from Spotlight’s location list. This is required to avoid searching.

Most of the times, this solves the problem. If there are any cloned copies in the boot drive, Spotlight generally indexes both the drives and results in two different search results and that is what confuses the App Store as App Store uses Spotlight to find apps and also determines the need of updating.

Though this is not an issue with Spotlight, the App Store is the main culprit here. It shouldn’t confuse the whole process even if there are clones or drives available. Nonetheless, the solution worked for many.
