*Is it possible to automatically update my apps?

Yes. You have an option to update your apps automatically.
Navigate to Settings > iTunes & App Store > Automatic Downloads > Updates. Switch the slider ON. This will turn on auto app-updates.

Can you let me know some apps that have very huge updates, so I can do it over Wi-Fi?

The size of the update file may vary every time. There is no mandate that if an app dispatches a huge update once, the next update would be huge as well. You could check the size of the file on App Store while updating and decide for yourself if you would do it over WiFi.

Can I use my iPhone when apps are getting updated?

Yes, you are free to use your iPhone while the apps are getting updated. There is one restriction though, that you may not be able to use the app that is getting updated at that moment. Rest of the apps are accessible.

When I update to iOS 10, will all my apps also get updated automatically?

No. Updating iOS doesn’t update your apps, only your software version. You will have to update your apps separately.

As new updates are available to apps, will I get notifications from specific apps about the update?

The App Store notifies you the number of applications pending for update. It is displayed as a superscript number in red on the App Store icon.
