The CultofMac blog noticed this change in the iOS 6 beta 3 seeded recently.

The Apple iOS based device users could download the free as well as paid apps from the App Store. However, even after three major updates, the users still have to feed in their Apple ID password every time to download the apps. Most annoying part was to do the same thing even for the free apps.

With the iOS 6 update, Apple plans to bring some changes to that routine. Most recent build of iOS 6 beta 3 hinted that the users will not have to feed in password for downloading free apps.
