To update TikTok on an iPhone or iPad, launch the App Store, go to the “Updates” tab and select “Update” next to TikTok. On Android, open Google Play Store, find TikTok and tap “Update” next to the app.

By updating TikTok, you can fix various bugs and possibly get new features in the app. While your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone automatically updates all apps by default, you can still force an update to make sure you get the latest TikTok version. We will show you how to do it.

Why should you update TikTok?

When you update TikTok (or any other app for that matter), you get several bug fixes that fix the issues in the existing app version. This is why most solutions to a technical problem ask you to update your programs.

Another reason to update TikTok is that you might get new features. When the platform introduces new features, you can get them added to your app by updating the app.

Updating the app also improves your overall experience, as the newer app version often has efficient code, which improves the app’s various processes. Updating any app is generally a good idea to stay safe online.

What if I can’t update TikTok?

If your phone or tablet is not updating TikTok, your device may have a minor bug, your internet connection may not be working, or your phone may not have enough storage space for the update.

You can fix most minor bugs on your phone by simply restarting the phone, which is easy to do on both iPhone and Android. Then you can try to update the application again.

If your Wi-Fi connection isn’t working, switch to mobile data and try to update the app (though beware that you’ll use up data). Likewise, if you’re on mobile data, switch to Wi-Fi and update the app. Rebooting your router and modem and disabling your VPN can also fix download problems.

If you think low storage space is stopping the update, make room for TikTok’s update by uninstalling unwanted apps, deleting photos and videos, and deleting other files on your iPhone, iPad, and Android device. TikTok will then update without any problems.

And that’s how you bring TikTok to its most recent version, so you can enjoy the latest and greatest features while minimizing app bugs.
