    I have noticed that some apps on Apple iPads keep needing updates often,but i don't see them being asked to update on my iPhone? or my computers.
    Example I have Google Maps on iPads and iPhone, I have noticed it needing an update almost every Month. I have many same Apt.s on my computers and don't find them being updated.
    I don't remember ever being asked to update an Apt. on my iPhone. When do they get updated? Maybe i am missing something.

    You probably have automatic app updates enabled on your phone. It updates them in the background whenever they are available. I typically don't notice mine updating.

    Settings > iTunes and App Store > Automatic Downloads > Updates > On

    Also, many developers like to keep their app/apps as current and bug free as possible. So they update frequently for iOS. Maybe the computer versions don't need it as often. I average 2 or 3 app updates per day. I currently have 113 apps.
