    The toggle for apps on automatic downloads will not stay on. I have gone through all of the troubleshooting guides. I have signed out and signed back in multiple times. I have soft reset the iPad multiple times. I am running the latest os 6.1.3. I have reset all settings. I have a very good Internet connection. I am all out of ideas for this. Please help.
