The new LG G7 flagship device comes with a lot of built-in apps, and it also has room for more apps that you can download and install from the Google Play Store. It will be helpful for new users to learn how to disable these apps from automatically updating without your permission and also to prevent mobile data usage.
Having a lot of update notifications from the Google Play Store can tick off some users so the best option, in this case, is to set the LG G7 to auto-update apps. Setting this up is pretty quick and easy. You can also set it only to update apps only when you are connected to Wi-Fi. This would help save your mobile data and also avoid paying for excess data usage.
How to Disable Automatic App Updates on LG G7
You have the option to either enable or disable app updates on your LG G7. You can edit all the settings from the Google Play Store. Below is a step by step guide to enable and disable automatic app updates on your LG G7.
- First off, turn on your LG G7.
- Next, launch the Google Play Store.
- Now, tap on the menu icon in the top left corner of the screen beside “Play Store.”
- The menu will slide out from the left side of the screen. From the list, tap on the Settings option.
- Next, tap on “Auto Update Apps.”
- Here, you can select the “Auto Update Apps” or “Do not auto-update apps” option.
Keep in mind that if you select the disable auto-update apps option, you will keep getting updates of apps that need to be updated on your device. They will also need you to confirm before they can be updated. This process can be quite stressful especially when there are a lot of apps installed on your device.
This decision depends entirely on the user. If you are an ordinary user who would forget to update apps at times, it best to enable this feature. This will prevent occasions where apps will malfunction because you have ignored to install their latest updates. One downside to choosing this option is that you will not get to know the new features that the app’s update come with.
