The question of how to update apps on Fire has come up a lot so it’s time for a post!

WhitneyApps updates our apps often, but lots of Fire Tablet owners miss out on these free enhancements and fixes because updates don’t happen automatically. It’s time to change all that! Here’s how to get those updates. Be sure to connect your device to Wi-Fi before you do this. Ready? Let’s go!

Find the right tablet below and you’ll be updating in no time!

4) Now tap the menu icon at the bottom-center of the screen (it looks like a box with three horizontal lines across it).

5) Tap “My Apps”

6) Now tap the “Update Available” tab near the top of the screen (just below “My Apps”).
