Much of what is familiar to us on iOS 12 and previous versions of the mobile OS has changed in iOS 13. These changes most often look logical and positive. However, some of them will require adaptation and adjustment. But some of the innovations may frighten an unprepared user. For example, an entire section with application updates will disappear from the App Store. 

In iOS 13 or iPadOS, Apple will slightly change the layout of items in its Updates section App Store. Because of this, the section with updates will disappear from the main page of the catalog. Instead, we are offered to use the Apple Arcade service, its very appearance has already caused a lot of discussion on social networks. Many users did not like the disappearance of the update section.  In fact, he simply changed his location. And you are wondering why my iPad is not updating the applications.

Conclusion

I must say that such a decision by Apple – to move the section with updates in the account settings, it looks pretty controversial. A rather important element disappeared from the main page of the App Store, and a new place for it was very unsuccessful. This arrangement is not intuitive.
