If you have updated to iOS7, you may notice now that your apps will automatically update themselves now whenever there is a new update available. This is something Android has had for a while and can be a good thing if you are usually lazy to update. However, not everyone wants their apps to update automatically because new updates can sometimes be broken and some like to wait a few days just to make sure the new updates are good.
There’s a really easy way to toggle this setting. Just go into (Settings > iTunes & App Store) and the scroll down to the AUTOMATIC DOWNLOADS section. There you’ll see the toggle for “Updates.” Just flip that on or off depending on your preference.
