Update on updates: Getting a ton of updates (71 in one sitting for me)? Here’s the skinny (kind of).
Posted by: Blankity Blank

Okay, I check updates regularly and apply them pretty much as they pop up.

It has seemed like I’ve been getting updates a lot more frequently in recent months, some apps seeming to ask for updates at pretty short intervals. But nothing like this.

WTF?

iOS 13.4, with 13.5 on deck.

“... First, there was chaos as many Apple users reported the “this app is no longer shared with you” error message, which made apps useless in iOS 13.5 and iOS 13.4.1.

Now, there is more mayhem as many Apple users report they are suddenly seeing multiple app updates on the App Store, in some cases up to 100....

... This sudden influx was first reported by Apple news site MacRumors, whose readers said they were seeing multiple updates, even for those iOS apps they had recently updated. In many cases, MacRumors reports, the dates listed on the new updates go back as far as 10 days.

Why is this happening? Apple has remained quiet about the “this app is no longer shared with you” issue, but the timing of these multiple updates isn’t a coincidence....

... A bit of clarity would be nice, but it doesn’t look like we are going to get it. So you know what to do. If you haven’t looked yet, go to the Apple App Store to see if you have a number of overdue recent updates and make sure you apply them all. This should hopefully fix the “this app is no longer shared with you” issue.

There seems to be some sort of rule that FireFox must update hourly.

For days now, I've been seeing numbers like that (70+ Apps to be updated). In addition to my iPhone, I have several iPads.

I wonder if this is related to the Jailbreak that was announced a few days ago.
