Numerous Apple iOS App Fishy Updates Are Being Re-Issued

Recently, Apple seems to be reissuing recently-published app updates, and users are being advised to reinstall the latest version of some apps in order for them to properly work again.

MacRumors readers have reported dozens of pending app updates notified in the App Store, even for a couple of apps that have been recently updated. This could have happened to you too, depending on how many apps you have on your iOS device and how often you update them. But if you’ve recently noticed more iOS updates than usual, just know you are not alone and this might be related to a bug called “This app is no longer shared with you”. 

As the name suggests, the app bug is causing some iOS users to be unable to launch their apps, with the message “This app is no longer shared with you” being displayed when attempting to access an app.

The quickest solution when this happens and you need to get the app working again without losing its data is to offload the app by reaching Settings > General > iPhone Storage, then simply reinstall it.

There is no information from Apple as to why updates for the already up-to-date apps are being reissued. We can guess that there is an issue with an expired certificate or some credentials related to app sharing that the company is dealing with.
