    Someone who can corroborate this plz, to get automatic app updates, do i need to have ON the toggles "Apps" and "Updates" in Automatic Downloads? or only the "Updates" toggle?

    "Apps" syncs apps across devices. Ex, you download an app on your iPhone, it would also download on your iPad and Mac (in iTunes).

    "Updates" is for automatic app updates. So if you just want the automatic app updates, then turn that on. But it doesn't hurt to have "Apps" on as well.

    It doesn't do it as soon as the update is available. Does it under best conditions, such as plugged in, or connected to Wi-Fi rather than cellular.

    Activating this options does consume battery faster i believe, or i am wrong?

    Shouldn't, and if it does, not much. I wouldn't worry about it.
