You need to be signed in to the correct account to download updates, but once you're signed in you shouldn't have to type in the password again just for updates.

That sounds like you're logged into the wrong account or not logged in at all. You shouldn't need to type anything to update.

On my iDevice when ever I'm logged into the sane ID for which I have updates I don't need to enter password.
For iTunes whenever I open it I asks me my password since I have only one ID associated for it.

I could be wrong. I do know that I have to enter my password when downloading apps. But I'm sure on a few occasions I've had to do the same when updating an app. But I've also updated apps without entering my password. So I'll check again, see if it happens again.
