One of the things you can do to save your iPhone battery is to turn off automatic app updates. However, doing so means your app updates pile up and eventually you have to update them all, usually at the same time. Let’s say you’re updating ten apps, but one of those apps is Facebook Messenger and you need to reply to a friend’s message as soon as possible—you can use 3D Touch to prioritize that app’s update before the others. Here’s how to prioritize app update downloads with 3D Touch.
How to Prioritize App Update Downloads with 3D Touch
Once you’ve started downloading the updates for all your apps,
Find the app you want to prioritize before the others.
3D Touch the app icon.
Tap Prioritize Download.
Your iPhone will update that app before the others. That’s all there is to it!
