Question: Automatic Downloads not working in ios7

After updating to ios 7 automatic downloads not working. It is enabled in settings but new content purchased in iTunes store on MacBook or iMac not automatically downloading onto iPhone. Any idea why? I have checked and "Automatic Downloads" is turned on in Settings > iTunes & App Store...

iPhone 5, iOS 7

This is the only thing I've experienced as 'not working' as it seems it should. I have no battery issues, or iMessage issues, etc. but my badge app icon can show updates for hours and they never download with Updates turned on and use cellular data on...even when I get to a wi-fi connection, they still do not update.

I've read through several other forums and various tech websites discussing the same thing.

I am still having the issue. When I download music on my MacBook it does not automatically download onto my iPhone. I have to go do it manually, the song I recently downloaded on my MacBook will show up on the iPhone but not in the playlist, just under artist or song name. Then I have to press the little cloud with arrow icon a few times to get it to download into the iPhone. This is a big step backwards from iOS 6. Hopefully it is corrected in an update soon.

I had the same problem with no automatic downloads of purchased Apps ...PLUS... I still recieved message "to use push notifications connect to itunes"

I found solution worked for me:

1- go to "Icloud keychain". (Under settings----> Icloud). go there and ENABLE it. It will ask for passcode and so on. so once enabled

2- restart your phone (normal power off)

3- reactivate imessage and facetime. (need a few minutes to reactivate)
