I am using iOS7 on my iPhone and iPad and already had some automated updates. I am, however, missing the blue dots next to the updated apps. Only a few apps get them but I can't figure it out why most of the other updated apps don't get it.

I find the auto-update system hasn't been working very well for the past few days. It's probably launch-time congestion of the servers, but I've turned it off for the time being. I suppose that by next week it should be better.

The auto update is working fine for me. It is just that it won't show the blue dot for updated apps. Only some few apps have a blue dot.

Is there anyway to have your apps automatically update, but turn the blue dots off?

Seems to be hit and miss for me. Not sure if there is an issue or if there is some logic behind when it does or does not show up.

The blue dot is pointless.

No blue dots here but the list of updates did show up in notification center...

I don't think the blue dot is for updated apps. I thought it's only for newly installed apps?

Same for me - maybe it's just a bug.

I've been seeing this since the betas. If I update manually the blue dot appears. If I let it auto-update then, there's no dot.

Nor sure if it is by design or it's a bug.

Can someone pls tell me what the blue dots are for? It's annoying to see some with and some without. Feels unbalanced

Sometimes the dot will show up, sometimes it won't. Definitely a bug.

Blue dots were showing up yesterday, but today they have disappeared but updates show up in notification centre.

Same problem for me as well, guess it is a bug.

I just tried that and blue dot does appear when you update manually, but not when auto-update is on.
