    Good afternoon!

    Ever since I upgraded to iOS 9 iTunes is making me reenter my password every time I want to update apps. I don't like having them update automatically so I choose to review them first and update manually. In iOS 8 and previous versions, it's always updated them for me without requiring me to reenter my password. I have it set-up to use Touch ID for new apps and that still does popup for me to use when I download a new app, but updates are making me actually type in the password. It's a little annoying to have to do that each time. Am I missing a setting? I've looked around but can't find anything that I might have set-up weird.

    I have an iPhone 6.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I know that when I just set my phone up as new, there was a question along the lines of "do you want to enter your password for free apps?" Which includes updates, I believe. Maybe try logging out of your Apple ID and back in to try and prompt that?

    Have you checked in Settings >General >Restrictions > password settings> Toggle "Require password" off.

    Thanks Laelipoo and Ledsteplin but I tried/checked both and it's still making me sign in every time for updates - UGH!

    You shouldn't have to enter a password to update.

    Do you have Touch ID set for that?
    Yep I do... and it wont ask for that unless I'm downloading/purchasing a new app.

    I know, it's so annoying! Before updating to iOS 9, I never had to enter my password to update!

    Sounds like a bug. I would reach out to Apple Support.
