If you don’t want your phone to automatically update your apps, well, there is a setting for that. In this article, we’ll show you how to disable automatic app updates on Android. For full transparency’s sake, we’ll talk about the Google Play Store updates here. So, update from Google’s official app store. This setting may be in a different place in other app stores, such as AppGallery, F-Droid, and so on. It may not even be available at all, that will depend from one third-party store to the next.
