Watch out for the new iOS update turning back on auto downloads

While at the store today I went ahead and had my iPad update all apps and check for a software update. Sure enough, there was a new iOS update.... 1.1 gigs. Went ahead and had it run the update which took a loooong time. After it was over I had to go through all those stupid screens Apple seems obsessed with and then I was good to go. I've learned long ago NOT to trust Apple when it comes to leaving my preferred settings alone so I went into my App store and iTunes settings and as expected, they had turned BACK ON auto downloads for music, apps, books, and updates.
If you DON'T check your Apple device after EVERY update you are going to find that data just seems to disappear.

So Apple is also in Microsoft's data burning and resource wasting club.  I suspect that the same is also true for many open source linux distributions as well if you let them do their "automatic updates."

You're welcome.

Another thing I forgot to mention, because this time Apple didn't turn it back on, is you MUST go into your settings and scroll down to Photos & Camera and turn off iCloud Phtoo Library, My Photo Stream, and iCloud Photo sharing.  Now for ME personally, these really wouldn't be a data problem BUT for my Wife and 3 daughters.......Viasat 2 isn't even going to be able to provide enough data LOL
