So, to make a long story short, I am in Afghanistan, my iPad and iPod with me. My family has 2 iPads a couple iPods and a iPhone at home. I recently updated my iPad and iPod to ios6, and iTunes to newest version. My iPad is now auto downloading apps my children are putting on the iPad/iPhone. I have my iTunes settings saying I do not want automatic downloads. Yet my iPad is getting them every day, my iPod is not. Being in Afghanistan, downloading 10+ apps not only maxes out my bandwidth, but slows down the connection for the real use. I have turned off every setting on the iPad and in iTunes that even remotely looks like it would connect to apple. Any ideas what is causing this, or should I just delink my iPad?

iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi, iOS 6.0.1
