    Will you be using auto app updates on iOS 7? [Poll]

    Personally i would prefer now and more than likely when iOS 7 is launched to continue manual updates. I check iTunes weekly unless I see a badge with numbers on my iPhone letting me know I have updates. Of course if i reads about an interesting update on the blog and use the app I will update. More than likely I will continue this path, We shall see. As Rene stated and made it a [POLL] what would you do?

    Yes, I'll probably use the auto update feature in regard to my apps, especially if I can continue to revert back to a previous version from an iTunes backup like I can now.

    I might but I have one concern. suppose its in the middle of an update and suddenly loses connection. I've had this happen already when I'm updating an app, and then suddenly the app is half updated and won't load or do anything and sometimes is stuck that way till i get home and sync with itunes after updating there.
    so if apple has it download in the background without touching the app till AFTER its downloaded completely, then I'm game. if it downloads and grays out the app, then maybe not. It could decide to update google maps right in the middle of me using it, hit a cellular dead zone, and then have me screwed.

    In all the betas I've had it off. I prefer to manually go into the App Store
    to update. I have no interest in this feature.

    I'm still going to do manual updates but it would be nice if I could get notifications on my lock screen when app updates are available

    Being as I update every app now, I don't really see a reason not to use this feature. I do like to see what updates come though. Will there be no notification of what apps were updated?

    No. I'm one of those who likes to see if there are any issues with an update before going ahead and just doing it.

    There are notifications for which apps have been updated.
    TurboTiger and SprSynJn like this.

    I have auto app updated enabled but only on wifi. Wouldn't want to use my 6GB for updating games on cellular. I don't see the whole point of people arguing this feature developers push out updated and your phone updated it automatically. Very rarely do updated break or remove features that users use.

    Only apps that are 50 MB or less would download and update over 3G/4G/LTE anyways if you allow auto app updates over "cellular data"

    Only if its on an app-by-app basis like it is on Android. I prefer to be in control in case my favorite app gets a borked update. I'm looking at you, Tapatalk. :/

    Nope, it's either all apps or none. But I wouldn't be surprised if Apple adds this in an iOS 7.x update

    I'll be using auto app updates for sure. One less thing to worry about and having to keep constantly checking.

    Manual. Sometimes an app is funky - I like to have the option.
