    Hello everybody

    I just saw in my itunes, that by default "automatically install new apps" ticked. What does it actually mean. I am attaching a screen shot of it.

    Thanks in advance

    It would download in all your other devices that has your apple ID logged in.

    It means the apps will be automatically installed or updated on your device when you sync your iPad (iPhone...) to it. It also means when you deleted apps on your iPad, they will reinstall when you sync it to iTunes, if this is enabled.

    This means that when you purchase an app or download a free app on one of your devices it will automatically download to any device which has "automatically install new apps" enabled. This happens as soon as the device connects to the Internet through cellular or WiFi.
