    I'm still being prompted for every free app I download... What. Is there a solution for this or a setting I have to use?

    I think it's only updates.

    Only updates and previously purchased/downloaded apps.

    I read very conflicting accounts regarding this. I have an iphone 4 and updated to iOS6 yesterday.

    I've updated apps, gotten free apps that weren't on my phone before and never did I have to type in my password. The only time I remember typing my password was to verify my id right after the update.

    EDIT: I think it did get changed. Thats funny as I downloaded some free apps in the morning that I never had and it didn't ask for any password. I just checked again right now and it prompted me for the password. First time after verification it asked me.

    Restrictions enabled?

    If you have restrictions enabled (Settings -> General -> Restrictions) and set to require password immediately, it still seems to prompt you for the password when updating apps. After I changed this back to the default (require password in 15 minutes) you can update without entering your password.
