I don't see an update for the ForeFlight app in the App Store. What can I do?

If you know there is an update to the ForeFlight Mobile EFB app in the App Store, but you are not seeing it available to you, please update your iOS to the latest version.

If your iOS is up to date and you still don't see the app update available to you, follow these steps:

STEP 1: Open the App Store app on your device.

STEP 2A (Newer iOS): Swipe down on the App Store to refresh the page. You should now see an update to the ForeFlight app available.

STEP 2B (Older iOS): For devices that have earlier iOS installed, tap on any of the buttons along in the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen 10 times in a row. You can tap on any of the App Store’s available buttons: Featured, Categories, Top Charts, Purchased, Search, or Updates.

The screen should go blank for a couple of seconds as the App Store data reloads. You should now see an update to the ForeFlight app available.

STEP 3: If you are still unable to update after following the instructions above, tap PURCHASED then search the "Purchased App" search bar in the upper left-hand corner, not the search bar in the upper right-hand corner.

STEP 4: If ForeFlight Mobile EFB is listed in your PURCHASED apps, you can delete and reinstall ForeFlight Mobile EFB to update. If ForeFlight Mobile EFB is not listed in your PURCHASED apps, you'll first need to download ForeFlight Mobile EFB from another iOS device while signed into your same iTunes (AppleID) account. 

STEP 5: Once you have verified that ForeFlight Mobile EFB is in your list of PURCHASED apps and deleted it from your device, open the App Store and select PURCHASED. Locate ForeFlight Mobile EFB and download it to your device by tapping the iCloud symbol.
