    just as the title reads, I have always heard of downloading apps all at once instead of waiting for one at a time, yet mine always waits.

    is this a software bug? I set my phone up as brand new when iOS5 came out and yet this problem persists. I have not restored since then.

    When I searched nothing came up really for this forum.

    My old 3GS always did one at a time. Now it's just a glorified iPod on my desk at work. It's still tied in with my Apple ID and thus gets all the apps and updates that I get for my 4S.

    The other day I looked at it and it had over 20 updates for apps. it actually downloaded more than one at a time.

    Are you using 5.0 or 5.0.1? I'm not sure if it is a bug or not, or if it is a 5.0.1 thing.

    My 3Gs on 5.0.1 downloads them three at a time, but only installs them one at a time. Just like my 4S.

    I am on 5.0.1 ota update, I think it might be a glitch which is super annoying, I hate reformatting especially after getting it all sorted out.

    Guess as I mentioned above it is aglitch in my software.
