How to enable or disable automatic updates for Passbook cards

Many different Passbook cards auto-update on their own without requiring you to do anything: Your balance will refresh on your Starbucks card, and if your gate changes at the airport, Passbook will alert you appropriately. If a pass isn't automatically updating, however, or you'd rather manually manage updating your cards, you can easily turn the automatic update feature on and off on a card-by-card basis.

How to turn automatic updates for Passbook cards on or off

  1. Launch the Passbook app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on the card you'd like to turn automatic updates on or off for.
  3. Tap the info button in the lower right hand corner of the card.
  4. Turn on or off the option for Automatic Updates.
