    I'm currently running beta 5 on my i5 and lately I've been randomly getting the "please enter your iTunes password" pop up frequently, like every hour or so. At first I thought it was the automatic updates for apps or something, so I turned it off, but it's still happening. Does anyone know what's the deal with this? I'm not sure if it's a bug or I'm just missing something in Settings.

    This happened to me on ios 6 (when I first upgraded to that ios from 5) and took me forever to figure out, turns out I had some downloads that the iTunes store was trying to download that were from my wifes account, which was why the password prompt kept popping up. Would have been nice for the prompt to tell me *why* it needed a password!

    Anyway, check your Downloads in the iTune Store App to see if there is anything 'stuck' there, that may be your problem...

    This has been happening to me since beta 3. It's rather annoying
