    Currently on 4.3.3 on my 3 iOS devices.

    If I download a new app its pushed to other 2 iOS devices...works as advertised.

    Since I'm away from home I have a question.

    If I update an app is that update pushed to other iOS/Mac devices or will I have to manually update each of them?

    Thanks

    The updates are manual as far as I know also. It's only when you purchase or download a new App,Book,Song is it pushed to the others.

    that would be a nice idea, but it doesn't appear to, i have to do it on each device, though iTunes on the computer gets a bit confused saying i've already purchased it and to check for available downloads, i do that, it says there's nothing, i go back into the updates section and it does it. iTunes in the Cloud is technically in beta on all devices, so it could be that this is part of it but yet to be fully implemented and will be at launch in the fall

    What would be nice is Delta App updates, that way it could push the delta over iCloud and use waaaaaay less bandwidth.
