Auto Over The Air updates for iOS 5 confirmed

App updates

New features for iOS 5 to be announced at WWDC have started to leak out. The first one is Over The Air (OTA) Automatic Download of Apps. The information appeared when trying to check for App updates in iTunes which revealed the new feature and has since been removed by Apple. The message specifically reads:

Or if your device has Automatic Download enabled for apps, your updates will download to your device without having to sync.

This would be a great feature for iOS devices as Android and other smartphones already implement OTA updates. The description only reveals that Apps will be able to automatically update but this could easily lead to OTA updates of iOS software. iOS 5 and iCloud will be revealed at WWDC looks like there is already mystery surrounding the event. WWDC starts on Monday with a Steve Jobs keynote, wait and see what happens then.
