A MacRumors reader has discovered that Apple has added the following line to My App Updates screen:

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

Previously, App update screen guided the user to download the update and then sync their iOS device via USB to begin using the updated app. This development indicates that not only the third party Apps will get automatic download for updates, but also over-the-air updates, if the user has enabled that feature on their iOS device.
