    So on my iPhone 6 on the App Store icon there is a red badge with indicates how many app updates I have. I now have done all my updates and synced my phone with my Mac but still the badge remains. Why is this happening and how can I resolve it?

    The same was happening to me. It was a bug in the first rev of iOS8. I have heard that 8.0.2 resolves it. Although, I haven't tried as I downgraded after scratching my head over this annoyance for too long.

    But I'm running 8.0.2. Would it be worth it to wipe my phone and re-install iOS??

    I also have it on 8.0.2 (on 4 different devices), didn't have it on 8.0

    My 5S shows the update badge under my Settings even though it's on 8.0.2. It didn't do this on 8.0. Weird bug.

    Had the same problem on 8.0. Not sure if it was 8.0.2 that helped or restarting the phone. Try reinstalling the app if possible.

    Have done that. It is a bug that Apple will have to fix.
