Does anyone know why the updates tab in App Store keeps showing apps I've already updated? Once I update the apps in question they should disappear from the update tab/screen. Minor issue but annoying.

Reboot the phone. If that doesn't work, sync the phone with the computer.

Okay. Delete the apps on your phone. They should be in iTunes on your computer. Update them on your computer and sync them onto the phone.

I've noticed this on both my iPhone and my iPad. Since they are grouped by date, I think this is a feature so you can see what has been updated. That is if you have auto updating turned on like I do. So I put this in the "it's not a bug, it's a feature" category.

Not using auto update, thanks for suggestions. I'll try that.

While I can't confirm it I, like GailLA, think it may be a feature to let you know what apps were recently updated. The app icons don't seem to hang around long in the "Updates" tab and disappear in a day or so.

That list just shows you what apps need to be updated or what were recently update. It's just an update history grouped by dates. If it has open beside it, then it's already updated. If it has update beside it, then you can update to the latest version.

In the previous operating system once you updated an app it disappeared from the update tab. Mine remain, if that's how it's supposed to be I'm ok with that but they aren't disappearing after a few days. Was just wondering if everyone else was experiencing same thing.

I hope at least the list will clear itself at some point.

it isn't really hurting anything. I actually find it nice in case I want to go back afterwards and see what was updated in the app.

Now apps show what was added to their latest update anyway so it's kind of redundant to me.

I have called Apple about this. They have started a ticket to address this problem. Another issue with apps is that if you enter a search query, u can't seem to delete it. I've x'd it out but it just comes back. Hopefully, they'll get both issues fixed soon. My list of updated apps is growing!
