Want to find out the current version of an app you use on iPhone? Sometimes you may need the version number of an app for troubleshooting or decide whether to update an app or not. There are different ways to check app version on iPhone or iPad. First of all, you should open the app and double check its Settings, Preferences menus, or About page see if the app version can be found. This varies by apps though. Different apps may have different in-app settings and menus. Of course, if you can find an app version inside the app itself, you won’t be here. Alright, here is another way you can also check current version numbers of apps on your iPhone.

Tap on the app name, you can then see the app name, version number, app size, documents & data size, etc.
