No more fumbling around with the App Store each morning to get the latest updates — in iOS 7, all apps will automatically update without users having to take any actions at all. The iOS App Store has never been the fastest app to work with, and not having to jump into it a few times a day should help to mitigate that annoyance. But more importantly, Apple is helping developers stem fragmentation in a major way. Less tech-savvy users who aren't familiar with the App Store may let apps sit around out of date, but starting in iOS 7, that should no longer be a problem.
