    Good question. I have found lately that this option is on and off. I have it right now, but I've noticed it comes and goes. Don't know what's happening.

    Thinking about it that's true. Sometimes the option is there others it's not.

    That is odd. I'm on iOS 5.0.1 now and the "Update All" button has always been available. Can you post a screen shot when that happens...curious as to what apps or what number of apps, etc. might be causing that (if any). TIA!

    Had the same problem occasionally when I first moved to iOS 5. Haven't had it since upgrading to 5.0.1. I'm speculating but I suspect it may have been a bug associated with updating apps (such as browsers) that require the user to re-confirm access to adult content. If such an app was in the list to be updated, the code may have prevented the "update all" feature from working correctly. As I said, I haven't encountered the problem since updating to the latest rev of the OS and I have updated at least one browser since then, so I think the problem is now resolved.

    BTW, I encountered a different problem yesterday that may have some bearing on this behavior. Tried to add the new Google Mail app to my iPad and found that it was completely non-existent in the App store. I was puzzled since I'd read that others had already downloaded it. Turned out that I had to update my iTunes application on my computer to 10.5.1 (As I recall) before the app showed up.

    Bottom line. Unless you have reason not to do so, (i.e. jailbreaking) it's always a good idea to stay up to date in terms of OS releases. In addition, as I discovered, staying up to date on the iTunes application is a good idea, as well.
