I can't believe I'm having to ask this basic question, but I can't find a way to update my iPad from LR Mobile 6.2.2 to 6.3 either in the LR or the CC apps.

Under LR's Settings/What's New there's an announcement dated 7 June about the new features but LR has not updated itself which I thought it did automatically.

Thanks in anticipation for your advice.

Start the Apple Store app. That is where you update apps. Automatic updates may be turned off.

There isn't a "new presets" button, just the old one which now should have two tabs: Library and Premium. The new presets are the ones under the Premium tab, and are only available to subscription users (which I assume you are?).

Tap on your account icon in the upper right corner (the zebra in my example). If there is an update, you should see it in the screen that comes up (at the bottom).

Normally, I would advise this procedure too, However, my update list says that I updated Lightroom today and yet the version listed in "About" is reading v6.2.2 still

Force quit Lightroom and start it again. The old version may still be in memory.

I did that. All apps need to be restarted after an update. I have not restarted the iPhone. I’ll try that next

iOS App Store Updates roll out on a gradual basis and take ~ 5 days to reach everyone. You can normally go into the App Store and search for an app and force the update but auto updates are at the mercy of Apple's App Store lottery.

Android has a similar roll out (7 days) but there is no way to force an update manually.
