    Updates - is there a way to be selective?

    Hi

    Is there a way to remove the app updates that I do not want to update?

    I have various media player apps (playable, imedia player etc) and I don't want or need to update them as I'll lose the ability to play certain files. However, they remain on the update list and the list of apps on the update list is getting longer.

    It'd be good if I could remove the ones I don't want to update. Is this possible?

    Thanks

    I'm afraid not, at least not with a stock iPad.

    No. You'll have to jailbreak the iPad if want to do that.
    Current Apple Devices:

    iPad 3-Black-16G-WiFi
    iPod Touch 4th Gen-Black-8G-WiFi
