In the app store, it will tell you that an update is available, it will update the app to the latest version.

As for free updates, that depends on the developer, if from same developer then they will probably be free, if not it will tell you how much and you will need to confirm before it will update

How to find out if an update is available? Do we simply go to download the same app again?

If the App is installed on your device, the App Store icon will show a number badge when updates are available for any app on your device. Simply use the Updates tab in the App Store to update.

As for my own experience downloading the same paid app to the same device many times, this is a fairly common practice on our development machines. These get reset fairly often and restoring from backup will bring bak things we don't want like application data, so apps are often simply downloaded again.

I've never run into a limit as to how many times we can do this...

So you are not referring to the icon on the Home screen, are you?

It's the App Store icon on the home page, which has the number showing of how many app updates are available.
