Many iPhone and iPad customers have reported a sudden spike within the variety of apps that require an replace – and no person appears to fairly know why.
Apple seems to have reissued plenty of current updates for in style functions, forcing some customers to reinstall the most recent iteration of software program already current (and fully-updated) on their units.
The quantity of updates required varies user-by-user, relying on what number of apps are put in on the machine, however can reportedly attain as much as 100 in some situations.
iOS app updates
Though the rationale behind the mysterious onslaught of updates stays unclear, some have urged it is perhaps associated to a flaw in iOS 13.5 – Apple’s latest operating system, published only days ago.
The bug reportedly affects Family Sharing settings and prevents users accessing specific applications, instead generating an error alert that reads: “This app is no longer shared with you”.
Alerts of this kind are typical if changes are made to a user’s access privileges – for example, if a parent were to ban a child from accessing certain material – but in this case apps are rendered inaccessible whether settings have been tinkered with or not.
The problem can be remedied easily enough by deleting the affected applications via the Settings pane and then reinstalling, but to do this for up to 100 apps could well tax a user’s patience.
The sudden reissuance of updates, the theory has it, could have something to do with this Family Sharing bug, but Apple has not yet supplied an official explanation – and did not respond immediately to our request for clarification.
