BlackBerry 101: How to update multiple apps on BlackBerry 10

You can still update multiple apps at once
BlackBerry Examiner

While playing around with my BlackBerry Z10 and chatting with a few folks on BBM, I learned that there was already an update to the native Twitter app in BlackBerry 10. I hadn't received a notification that there was one, so I went browsing around in BlackBerry World and learned how to update multiple apps at once.

I walked my new buddy Michael from BlackBerry Empire through the process and decided to resurrect my BlackBerry 101 series by letting all you guys know how to get that process done.

The process takes a couple steps, but thankfully operating on BlackBerry 10 is so slick and streamlined, that it's still fairly simple. First thing you're going to want to do is obviously open up BlackBerry World. Once you've got the main screen open, swipe from the left of the screen to the right, the same gesture you would use to open up BlackBerry Hub. This will bring up your menu. The bottom selection is My World, so go ahead and tap on that.

Once My World loads up, you'll see a list of apps downloaded on your device. Swipe down from the top to pull down your settings menu, and you'll see an option that says, "Upgrades." (This option will only show up if you actually have apps with updates available.) Select it and you will be taken to a screen that shows all your apps that need updates. You can then view each app's release notes by tapping them, upgrade them one at a time, or select upgrade all.

If you'd like to watch the progress of your apps, simply swipe down from the top again and tap on downloads. You'll be taken to the screen shown above that will show you how each download is progressing.

And that's pretty much it! If you'd like to follow along with my newest BlackBerry 101 articles that will focus on basic BlackBerry 10 functions, feel free to subscribe today! You also have the option of following me on Twitter!
