    I don't know if it's just my imagination or what, but on my 4 and 4s, I would hardly ever get push notifications for app updates, I would have to manually open up the app store and then the notification would show up. Now on my 5, I'm getting them all pretty much instantly. I'm not used to it and I'm always thinking "wtf keeps popping up in that folder?! Oh yeah, app updates." Did anyone else have problems with that particular push notification on their previous iPhones, especially the 4/s? And if so, are you seeing a vast (no pun intended) improvement on either the iPhone 5 or iOS 6?

    I hope you're right. This has been an annoying problem in iOS for a long, long time.

    It's an iOS 6 improvement. Now I only wish I could opt in/out like all other apps that use Push.

    ie, banner alerts, notification center support, etc.

    Ah, I sold my 4s before iOS 6 came out and I haven't had the iPad long enough to pay attention if it was doing it prior to iOS 6. I still don't pay attention to it.

    I like that it is showing me the updates but I also like that it doesn't auto update. I would burn through my data to fast if it auto updated.
