Viewing available app updates and recently updated apps on your iPhone is more confusing and less obvious on iOS 13 than it is on iOS 12 and older.
Since iOS has an App Store, apps are updated manually pretty much the same. Open the App Store, tap the Updates tab, and select apps to refresh or refresh all at once. You can also view a particular app in the App Store and update it on the details page if an update is available. On 3D Touch devices, you can also update all apps using the Quick Store for the App Store on the Home screen.

method 1: Update from available updates
While the Updates tab in iOS 13 no longer exists, most of it has been moved to a different location, one that is a little harder to find.
In older versions of iOS A numbered badge will appear on the "Updates" showing how many updates were available In iOS 13, the same badge will be displayed on your badge Profile image in the top right corner of a tab As you probably guessed, you need to click on it Tap Profile Picture to see available updates and recently updated apps It may be obvious when updates are available, but if you do not Do not ever look into your account options .
If you open option page for your account search for section Available Updates which looks almost the same as the Updates tab in iOS 12 and earlier. You can tap More next to an app to see more details about the update, tap the app icon to view the main page, touch the Refresh button next to an app to update it manually, or Update all "to refresh all apps in the list.
When viewing recently updated apps, it's pretty much the same in this list. If you've just upgraded some apps, they'll show up among all the apps that still need updating. The section is called .

It's definitely painful-in-the-ass-kind of update, in iOS 13, as well as in iOS 11 and 12 you can go to any tab in the Tap App Store on your profile picture, select "Purchased" and then "My purchases" and tap "Refresh" next to the apps in the list.

Method 3: Update from the details of an app
The way you could Do it all the time, if you know or suspect that an update is available for a particular app you are using, you can download it from the App Store via a search or from the lists in method 1 and method 2 above. On the App page, you can view update details in News .
Method 4: Update All About the Quick Action
In iOS 10 or later, on 3D Touch devices, you can long press the App Store icon on the Home screen to see the quick actions. Then select "Refresh All" to update all manually without having to review each app individually. You can even keep your finger on the screen after a long press, move it to "Update All", and release your finger for a single gesture.
In iOS 13, you can do the same, but it also works with haptic touch. Whether you're using 3D Touch or Haptic Touch in iOS 13, it's not just a long press. You have to press and hold until the app shrinks a bit, then release, and the quick actions are displayed. When you do this, you can not use the long press and swipe gesture to do everything in one move with 3D Touch.
In the "iTunes & App Stores" settings available in the Settings app, there is a section for Automatic downloads . You can tap the button next to "App Updates" to turn it on. Apps will be updated automatically when new updates become available. A manual review is not required. If you do not want it to work over your cellular network, for example, if you have a limited data plan, you can ensure that "Use mobile data" (in iOS 12) or "Automatic downloads" (iOS 13) is disabled.
