    How to Check for App Updates in the Store in Windows 10 Mobile Phone

    information   Information
    The Windows Store offers various apps that users can browse through, purchase, or get for free to download and install to their Microsoft account in Windows 10 PCs and devices.

    The people who create apps are constantly making tweaks and improvements, fixing bugs, or adding new features. When a newer version of an app you've downloaded and installed becomes available, the app update will be downloaded and installed automatically by default.

    This tutorial will show you how to manually check for updates in the Store for installed apps on your Windows 10 Mobile phone.



    Here's How:

    1. Open All apps, and tap on the Store. (see screenshot below)

    Hello Doug,

    These can sometimes cause this issue:

    Double check to see if your clock has the correct time, date, and time zone set for it.

    Verify that your region is correct.

    All those are set correct. I will give it some time, and reboot again. Thanks Shawn
