How can I turn off automatic app updates on my iPad with iOS 7?

Automatic app updates allows your iOS device to automatically download and install the latest app updates from the Apple App Store. This can be a great feature for users who don't like manually updating their appps, but it can also be a drain on your device's battery. You can turn this feature off by navigating to Settings > iTunes & App Store > AUTOMATIC DOWNLOADS > Updates. Tap the toggle to OFF to disable the feature.

Green = ON
Grey = OFF
