    Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen
    .
    At the bottom, we will see icons. It is in this section that we now need to focus, because we need to open up the applications folder. To do that, we use the icon located at the bottom of the home screen in the middle. It looks like a grid made of white dots. This is the icon for the applications folder. Press down on this icon and it will open up our applications folder.

    Find the option marked "Apps were auto-updated"
    .
    It says, "Notify when apps are automatically updated". When an app is automatically updated, we will receive a notification telling us about that process. This option is currently selected. We can tell because the adjacent box is a turquoise color and has a white checkmark inside.
