Senator John McCain Praises New Auto-Updating Apps Feature in iOS 7
Previously in May, Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) asked Apple CEO Tim Cook after a discussion on Apple’s tax practices why he constantly finds himself needing to update the apps on his iPhone. He specifically asked the following in a lighthearted moment:
What I really wanted to ask is why the hell do I have to keep updating apps on my iPhone all the time?
We're trying to make things better all the time.
Thanks to Tim Cook for the automatic iphone app updates! #apple #wwdc
Has there been a specific feature that has you looking forward to iOS 7?

With the Android its good when they auto-update but sometimes they dont and you have to manually update them. They also have the choice to auto-update or not. Thats how it should be with Apple.
They should have a look at Google Play and see how its done then copy it like they did with most of the features of IOS 4/5/6
Its nice. I got the Cydia app Auto Update and its great. Thats what they should do and have somewhere where to see what was updated and when.

If I can turn it off fine.
How many times do I saw notes at app updates starting after a while with
!!! DO NOT UPDATE, you will loose ... !!!
And then you have to wait weeks for the new update, which eliminate bugs... (dev fix it, sends to apple, apple approves...)
Or there is even no further update which fix something, like the AC3 legal issue for several media player apps lately...

If they don't DON'T have an OFF SWITCH they are going to loose all kinds of people. I only have an iPhone because of the J.B. Community. I remember when there was no Cydia store and you could actually look at everything,(not even possible now ;-)
So unless Apple wants to loose thousands maybe millions world wide they better have an off switch.

I just got it installed. You can turn off the auto updates, but there's no per-app options.

Nope.. Switching back and forth is pretty fast though. It's only beta 1 they could add it though. They better add more stuff. I gave up my jailbreak for this beta. So far worth it

Can I see a dated history of updates and what has changed or only the latest?
06-11-2013, 02:39 PM #15
I can't remember the last time I happened upon such a non story.

I don't understand why people don't like it. If its a good app and it updates to a buggy one then just deal with it I guess. Not being harsh at all but that's the pain of it. Is it such a bad thing that if an app screws up because it updated it for you automatically that you can't use the app so you'll leave?

This will be an amazing feature if it works like Android in the sense that you choose which apps auto-update, but it doesn't force you to.
