It’s important to keep your TikTok app up to date so you can ensure that you’re always getting the latest features and bug fixes. Here’s how to update TikTok on iPhone and Android.

TikTok is becoming more and more popular by the day, and there is a constant stream of new people making accounts on the platform to keep up to date with the latest viral content.

As a result, the app is always growing and changing and they are regularly adding new features such as the Stories feature which give creators the power to make a range of different content on the app, and viewers the power to easily interact with that content.

For that reason, it’s important that you keep your app up to date so that you can ensure you are getting access to the latest features that everyone’s talking about, and receive any bug fixes that could be affecting the app’s functionality.
