    How to prevent auto update on Acer Iconia Tab A500 working on Android OS?

    It is seen that my Acer Iconia Tab A500 working on Android OS does auto updates without my knowledge. Some of the unwanted updates are occurring on my tab because of this which results in loss of memory. How can I prevent this auto update on my tablet?

    You can stop auto updates of all the apps which you have installed in your phone.Once deactivate won't consume space.Procedure is simple,below I have listed the steps to stop auto updates:-
    • Go to Menu page from home screen of your phone.
    • There will find an option as Google Play Store/Android Market.
    • You need to tap to open that.Once open then tap on Menu Key.
    • After tapping on menu key a new page will be opened.
    • In that will see an option labelled as Settings.
    • You need to tap & a new window will be opened.
    • In that window below will see Auto Update Apps.
    • You need to tap on Check box near by that option to stop the auto updates.
    • Mark will be disappeared once tapped & hence will stop auto updates.
