    When updating apps already installed on my iPad 3 and iPhone 4S, why is it that the iPad does not require a password but the iPhone does?

    Maybe you had logged off you Apple ID?

    I use my ID for certain Apps on my wife's and daughter's phone ("family sharing" of apps) and sign out afterwards. Every update I have to enter the password again.

    If you have iOS 6, it does updates without requiring password authentication. If both have iOS 6, then it may be in the settings.

    I checked the iPad and phone's Settings>iTunes & App Stores, there is no option there to require a password or not for app updates. Both are running iOS 6. I am continuously logged in to both iTunes and the App Store. There's got to be a reason that one device requires a password and the other doesn't. No big deal though.

    I only have an iPad 3, and have never signed out of my account. Since updating to iOS6, sometimes the App Store asks for my ID to update free apps, sometimes not. It seems to be 50/50, at random. <shrug>

    Do you have pass codes on both devices? I know that outside the 15 minute window I was required to enter my password on my phone every time, even for updates until I reenabled the pass code on my phone.

    Yes, I have pass codes turned on for each device. Does anyone else have to enter a password to download app updates on their iPhone running iOS 6 but not on their iPad? I download updates on the iPad without having to enter a password. As soon as they have installed, I then tap to download the same updates on the iPhone and have to enter a password before the downloads will begin.
