My app store is displaying an update as badge. When I click the App Store, it claims I have all updates.

What did Apple do?

Update: The apps now appear to be available to download. Anyone else seeing this now too?

I am seeing this behaviour too and am 98% sure the updates are for for apps on your phone which require iOS7 or later.

I am not aware of a fix at this stage.

  • That makes sense, however they should remove the icon for me? Stupid update badge.

  • Yes, it's a little annoying. I think if you open up the App Store app and open the Updates page, the badges disappear (temporarily).

  • I had 2 badges visible, only 1 update. So not solved (yet)
