    I'm still missing silent updates on iOS. I must go manually to the AppStore and look for some updates, log in into my AppStore account and update the Apps.

    So, I'm missing an option to tell iOS, when on WiFi and an update is available, install it and give me a notification in the Notification Center: "App XYZ is updated to version 1.3".

    Silent updates, though technically possible, have not yet been implemented.

    Delta OTA updates for apps would be most welcome as well...

    Don't like the idea unless you could disable it.

    :p
    I always read reviews about some updates just 'breaking' applications. It doesn't take much effort to update them manually. I would like there to be an indication though on the App store icon that updates are available, instead of having to open up the store and check. Hardly on the top of the things I want done to iOS though.
