One of MacRumors readers has noted a new feature that must be coming in iOS 5, is being tested in iTunes. Marccelo discovered that when he asked iTunes to check app library for updates, iTunes’ update page reveals a new feature as shown in the below screenshot.

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

What does this sentence mean? You will be able to automatically get app updates to your iOS device. Presently, this process is being done manually.

Another new features :

It also suggests that there is an Automatic Download setting for other items besides apps. Apple has been rumored to be making a push into over-the-air updates as well as some sort of wireless syncing. Rumors of AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule updates have also hinted at such a feature.

Imp0rtant T0 Explain:

What’s over-the-air?Starting from iOS 5 Apple will start to introduce over-the-air software updates service. Precisely, when new iOS update to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is available, you will get an update notification and then you can update the software right on your iOS device. Actually, Apple’s competitors is already introducing over-the-air service long time ago.
When over-the-air arrives ?
Multiple sources (one as far back as March) say the new feature will debut in iOS 5, meaning iOS 5 will not come over-the-air but following point updates to it will. Just like tethering in iOS 3, Apple has the technology but cannot just unleash it everywhere. Apple and Verizon Wireless are said to have been in talks over these wireless software updates since early this year. Sources could not comment on whether or not Apple is negotiating similar deals with AT&T or international iPhone carriers.
It makes sense that Apple would have to make small update sizes which may be via incremental patches rather than full iOS downloads. I hope to see this as soon as possible 😉

The leaked features has been deactivated quickly due to the slip up.
