  1. Go to My Games and Apps.
  2. Select Minecraft and click on the "Manage Game and Add-ons" option.
  3. Click on updates.

Like other platforms, phones and other devices can update Minecraft automatically, but players can sometimes run into app store issues that prevent them from doing so.

Players need to follow these steps to manually update Minecraft:

  1. Navigate to the app store or Google Play Store.
  2. Search for the game Minecraft.
  3. Click on update if there is an update option prompted.
  4. If the latest version is already installed, just press "open" and play.

  1. Hover over the game Minecraft.
  2. Click on the options button.
  3. Select "check for update."
  4. The update will begin if there is one available.
