Hi! Thanks for reading. This post looks better in our award-winning app, Tips & Tricks for iPhone.


Any time that songs, apps, or books are downloaded on another device using your Apple ID they’ll also appear on your iPhone if automatic downloads is turned on – without needing to sync.

To turn this on, open Settings, then iTunes & App Store. Turn on the items you’d like to be downloaded automatically to your device.

If you turn on Updates from this section, your apps will stay up-to-date without your input. If you’d rather leave it off, though, you can update apps manually from the Updates tab of the App Store.
