App Store for Apple Watch Displays “no Updates”
In My Testing, I Discovered that The Apple Watch App Store’s Upgrades Section May Display “no Updates” Even if You Have Pending App Updates. when You Restart or Forcibly Stop the Apple Watch’s App Store App, It Still Displays the Message “all Your Apps Are up To Date.”
It seems more dependable to update Apple Watch apps via the iPhone or through automatic upgrades. You may refresh the updates screen on an iPhone by pulling it down. This is absent from Apple Watch, though. As a result, occasionally you won’t see updates listed here even when they are. It’s also conceivable that the version of watchOS 8.1 I’m using has a problem. The issue could have been resolved by the time you read this.
