Rumor: iOS5 to bring Automatic App Updates
Rumors abound that Apple’s new iTunes will have an option to automatically download app updates to your iOS devices without needing to perform a wired sync. The leaked version of iTunes has a My App Updates screen which describes a previously unseen feature “If your device has Automatic Download enabled for apps, your updates will download to your device without having to sync.”
As the Automatic Download setting doesn’t yet exist in iOS, the leak appears to suggest that this feature will become available in iOS 5. All features of iOS 5 will be revealed on Monday during the Apple World Wide Developers Conference. We will be covering the event live here.
