    I just got the new iPad and I have the smart cover with the sleep/awake function enabled. I also have a first gen iPad. My problem is when I download a universal app on my iPhone, it also downloads it on my first gen iPad but not my new iPad with the smart cover on. I figured when I wake the new iPad up by removing the smart cover the app would either already be there or would automatically start downloading it. But it does neither. Any suggestions?

    Good call sir! I just wonder why that setting didnt automatically turn itself on when I activated my new iPad from iCloud. :confused:

    Perhaps the Auto Download is a choice to make by the user only, rather than a default ON.
