When the sims freeplay release a new version of the game you need to update it on your device to enjoy the new content, this post explains how to update your game manually and automatically on an apple, android and kindle device.

MANUALLY UPDATING- you need to do this every time they release a new update

Apple Devices

On an apple device you need to go to the app store (the red circle number notification is how many updates you have available)

1st Method- Updates Tab

One way to update is by opening the app store, clicking on the updates tab (1), finding the sims freeplay in the list and clicking update (2)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2nd Method- Searching

You can also update by searching for the game, to do this open the app store again, click the search button (1), type in sims freeplay in the search bar (3) and the game will appear with the option to update (4)
