    Does anyone know how to clear the updated apps from the App Store on iPhone 4S? Every app that updated recently is still there but with an "open" button rather than and "update" button.

    This happens to be every now and then still. What I do is fully close the App Store by double clicking my home button and closing the App Store. That'll reset it once you reopen and choose Updates.

    I have experienced this as well, but only for two apps. All the rest disappeared from the list after being updated. But the same two apps have remained in there even after newer update notifications have been processed and completed.

    I suspect that it's a bug with those apps and the App Store app. Even after updating to 7.0.2 tonight those same two apps remained in the App Store update list, with the Open button.

    All updated apps should remain in the update page. that's just how it is with iOS 7 now.

    I recently read on some other forums that these will stay in the App Store for two weeks and then go away. People have set the calendar on their phones to say the phone is two week ahead or more, and those items will disappear from the App Store listing.

    I just tested it and it worked.

    -Go to Settings-General-Date &Time

    -Turn off the Auto Set Date/Time

    -Manually set the Date ahead in time, at least two weeks from your last App Store update

    -Go back to General to make the change take effect

    -Exit the App Store and re-launch the App

    -All apps that were listed as updated should now be gone

    -Go back to Settings-General-Date&Time and turn the Auto Set back on.

    It's an annoyance because it's a change from earlier versions of iOS.

    I think that the reason Apple did this was to work in conjunction with automatic App updates. Since you would not know when an App gets updated when they are done automatically, this will keep a historical list for the last two weeks.
