Thanks for reaching out, @Elvira!

Updating enterprise apps can be done in two ways.

The first method is to replace the old APK file with the new one in the Hexnode App Inventory. If the app to be updated was pushed as a mandatory app policy, then the app gets updated automatically, provided the policy remains associated with the device. You can also install the new version via Install Application action.

Another method is to add the higher version APK as a new app instead of replacing the old APK in the Hexnode app inventory and then pushing it to devices either via Install Application action or as a mandatory app policy.

In the case of updating enterprise apps in kiosk, if a higher version is added as a new app, then the kiosk policy must be edited, and the old app must be replaced by the newer version.

Hope that helps.
