Over the Air iOS Updates
Another feature that is likely to be confirmed for iOS 5 next week has leaked. Automatic iOS application updates over the air.
A MacRumors user noticed the following change to Apple's App Updates screen:
Or if your device has Automatic Download enabled for apps, your updates will download to your device without having to sync.
What the sentence does confirm is a new setting that doesn't currently exist. Users can only manually update or sync their apps through App Store on their devices. Hopefully this means Apple will include over the air updates for iOS as well, and finally make wireless syncing a possibility.

I don't see this leading to wireless sync, but automatic updates would definitely be welcome. Hopefully we'll have a decent notification system soon that will let us know it's happened too!

Apple has went back and changed this to remove that line.

Interesting... I didn't see this one coming so soon.

This title is a little misleading, since the screenshot in question talks about app updates, not iOS updates.
