Apple software gripes

I love my Apple products.

However, two smaller items have me thinking of a more seamless experience.

First – in iOS 6, Apple changed it so that app updates do not need a password. Just hit the update button and the app is updated. So much more simple and elegant.

However, ( and here is the gripe) why do I even have to hit a button? Why isn’t there an auto update? I always update all my apps anyway, so why not do it automatically?

Second – in iTunes on the Mac (and I suppose on a windows PC also) why do I have to download my iphone apps to the computer? I am syncing via wifi and iCloud. Do my apps need to take up space on my computer anymore?

They don’t do much for me, except to give my compulsive side another “update” button to hit.

Now, off to CES!
