Automatic Downloads

Get the most recent on iPhone/iPad technology: Ipads Advisor

This is an additional fundamental iPad idea and a question I see asked about a lot in iPad discussion forums– how to stop apps or music or books from downloading automatically.

Automatic downloads can be very useful– these allow for all your new investments (which even includes complimentary apps you download) on any device where you’ve an iTunes account to be downloaded immediately on your iPad. However for a few of us they can end up being an annoyance– for instance when you’ve particular apps or songs that you just desire on your iPhone. I’ve the tendency to keep a much bigger songs library on my phone than on my iPad, and there are some apps that are actually only fit for and useful on a phone gadget.

The good thing is that iOS makes it easy to turn these automatic downloads on and off for apps, books, and songs individually or for all them. Below’s how:

– Open the Settings app, scroll down the left sidebar a little way and tap on the ‘iTunes and App Stores’ area.

– You’ll see the ‘Automatic Downloads’ settings right in the middle of the screen. You can tap to toggle automatic downloads on and off for music, apps, and books.

It’s as easy as that and naturally you can easily change these settings up as and when needed.
