    Many app updates have bugs. Some remove functionality.

    Is there a setting that allows you to prevent auto updates?

    Oy. Hadn't noticed it before, but yeah, that's annoying! Hope there is a way to clear this!

    In on this. AVPlayer iphone & ipad version removed DTS/AC3 support. Until I find an app that supports all this for my media, I cannot update this app.

    I don't mind the badge but having auto update then puts me and everyone else at a risk of losing apps that have functions we paid for that were later removed.

    So does updating your OS, as those old versions of apps may not work.

    Rather than start a new thread - as the OP already has an answer to their question, I'll post here.

    This is a useful new feature of iOS 7 and I like how you can tweak it so updates only occur over WiFi.

    There are two changes I would suggest for Auto App Updates, however.

    Firstly, as it stands there is no indication of WiFi activity in the menu bar of the device when updates are in progress. Hopefully this will be added in the next beta.

    Secondly and more importantly, although a useful feature, it's a bit of a battery hog. In addition to the WiFi only option I'd like to have the ability to select to update only when on WiFi and also connected to power.

    You're telling me. Successfully ignored for weeks until in a stupid moment I did update all :(
