It's the little things in life that can sometimes irk us the most. Case in point here - Apple and the way it goes about downloading apps. In the times I've owned non-jailbroken iDevices, it's driven me to distraction having to input my iTunes password EVERY TIME I want to download an app.
But fear not - that little bit of the OS is on its way out with the latest iOS 6 BETA apparently removing the need to download apps from the App Store, albeit free ones or updates to those already downloaded.
It's something jailbroken users have been able to toy around with for a while thanks to a tweak in the Cydia store. But for those who don't want to take the plunge, it's likely to be a real improvement (except for those who let their kids play with their phones and are likely to find all kinds of annoying games on there.)
There's also a change to the downloading process coming. At the moment, when you download an app, it takes you back to the homescreen and you have to go back into the App Store. Which is kinda annoying when you want to download several in one go.
As with Android, users will now be allowed to stay in the App Store and continue browsing.
Thanks heavens for progress, huh?
