    I apologise if a thread similar to this has already been created, but since I checked and saw that no such similar thread had been created, I thought I'd create this one. However, feel free to move it if needed.


    Hey guys,

    I'm not sure if any of you with iOS 9 have noticed, but I'm finding, since updating from iOS 8.4 to iOS 9, that I'm having to input my Apple ID password for every singe app update, whereas I didn't before in iOS 8.4. Do any of you know why this would be, is there a setting I have to change or is this just a bug in iOS 9.0? Could this be fixed through an update patch? I'm finding it quite annoying having to do this.

    It's almost made me consider reverting back to iOS 8.4.
    I really would like Apple to fix this if it is indeed a bug.

    Thanks in advance guys for any help.

    So, is no one else finding they're having to input their Apple ID password for app dates?

    I have to at random times. I have had to even though I selected the touch ID for purchases. Sometimes after the phone has not had internet and I use the music app. Same for the iTunes app on my computer. It's very annoying. The secondary verification is annoying too because I'm not always sitting with my other device to confirm. (That process was worse during beta, where you had to enter your password and the 6 digit code in the same field.)

    Apple is now what they criticized Microsoft Vista of

    It's great to see that I'm not the only one. Apple really needs
    to fix this. It's so annoying. I didn't have to do it in iOS 8.4.

    On another note, has anyone noticed that you can no longer watch your podcasts in fullscreen? This is not okay. I hope Apple fix this ASAP. Because I'm having to find other ways to watch my podcasts because of this problem. I'm not normally an angry kinda person, but this just gets on my goat, STS. Why did Apple think removing fullscreen functionally was a good idea? I go by the saying, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    (STS = so to speak)
