Recently the iOS App Store has started to prompt me for my password for updating apps in the App Store. Is there something I can do to change this back to the way it was?


I think the restriction settings may be the cause. Even though I have a PIN on the home screen, it prompts me for a password when I update.

I went to Settings > General > Restrictions > Require Passwords and set it to 15 minutes. I'm not sure how it got changed to this, possibly an update?

    This has nothing to do with it. What you describe is a bug. If you try to update from a page within the store, it will prompt you for your pass. If you update from the actual Updates tab, it won't. – user10355 Dec 30 '13 at 19:50
  • Hitting update all triggers the prompt as well. – CyberSkull Dec 31 '13 at 5:06
