Apple App Store finally getting automatic updates

I can not believe how Apple is so retarded!! They really hadn't had the feature before??
What else? A power button? Does it really have a power button? Can we power off an iToy with a long press? I'm really not sure now :-)

I really hope this feature can be turned off. I like to find out what changes are made with the updates before I install each one.

Agree with you. I never allow auto update on my device cause I like to check out what the update does and if permission have changed. I hope Apple have left his up to their customers if they want auto updates or not.

I'm sure it will, you can choose not to update automatically on other platforms. Can't imagine why Apple wouldn't let you here either.

Finally- as an ex iOS user I always envied Android for having this feature and not being tied down to iTunes for the updating of the app store. Good move even if its three years late. Aagin Catch up here not innovating. I like what apple is doing but they in no way should say they are innovating here as these features have been on other platforms long ago. So Phil show me real innovation give me some Iron man tech here. Lol

If this cannot be disabled I can see a lot of angry users if it eats into their data plans if it does it over cellular when they only wanted it to do it over wifi. Hope there is an option.

That would be a nice feature but I personally dont care whether angry birds auto updates or not. Having the ability to turn updates off will benefit me in my job as an IT specialist. Having the ability to turn off updates would be cool. Less people messing crap up. People at home won't know the difference.
