Auto-updated apps still show up in App Store update list days after updating?

    I don't know if this is a bug, or by design. I have auto updates enabled, and I've had quite a few apps update on their own. However, even after updating, they're still showing up in the updates section with no way to clear the list.

    I'm a stickler for "clean", so having this app info in my Updates section is really bugging my OCD side :D

    As seen below, one app was updated on July 9 and still shows up:

    It's not really related to auto-update given that even with that off, when you manually check for and update apps, they still stay there on the list in the App Store. Something new in the iOS 7 App Store it seems. Hopefully there'll be a way to remove that or hide that (or Apple would hide that in a way similar to Purchases).

    I think it's intended. It's not only auto-updated apps. It's any app that's been updated manually or automatically.

    People asked how would they know an app was updated or what was updated (notes) if auto-update was turned on.

    I think this is the answer.

    Well I can understand that, but there needs to be a way to clear the list once you've seen when it was updated.

    There surely is! Close the App Store app, AND BAM THEY'RE GONE!

    I agree, if the App Store doesn't have a badge number with pending updates and if its a tab (Updates) that I don't have to click on, it doesn't bother me that the items stay listed.

    And when you open the App Store again, they are right there in it.


    Or at least hide them like they've done for purchased apps (where there's a link that takes you to them from the updates screen).

    This issue remains in the released version of iOS 7

    bump. This issue still remains along with all the previously updated apps in the list.

    Has anyone found a way to clear this list. I have tried closing the app store and restarting the phone both to no avail.

    I've tried signing out of the app store, closing the app, and then signing back into the app store and this list of all previously updated apps is still there.

    It is just annoying more than anything. Hope someone has a solution.

    It's not an issue, it's by design (as unfortunate as that is). Unless/until Apple decides to change the design, or perhaps some jailbreak comes along and there's a tweak that would help with it, there's not much you can do (perhaps short of restoring your phone to clear out that data).

    This is perplexing. Updated apps still appear in update list but with "Open" option.

    I do not recall this issue in iOS 6.

    Just because there wasn't any auto update setting in iOS 6 ....

    This is a feature to show which app was automatically updated by your device.

    Except it still shows with apps that were manually updated, which is pointless.

    I have auto update off in iOS 7 and I prefer to update apps as I see fit.

    My preference is to not see apps I have recently updated.

    I thought the tiny blue dot was a way to indicate the recently updated Apps?

    Either way this is something I noticed as well and I find it annoying.

    I have all the settings for auto update on my iPhone 5s but still apps don't auto update unless I turn wifi on. I have update over cellular turned on but without luck. Did a soft and hard reset. No luck either. Any idea if it updates automatically for certain apps or it should for all of them? Is it auto updating for you? Thanks.

    It's not an "issue" in the classical sense. It's Apple's response to people wanting a list of recently updated apps and they stay for approx 30 days I think.

    I like the list. Lets me evaluate the recently updated apps and go through each app and the new features.

    I prefer it as it stands as well, as I like the auto-update feature, but also like to see what an update may entail.

    Ditto for me on both.

    Apps updated in iOS6 changed from Update to Open
    But they didn't remain visible once you closed App Store

    That so called "feature" to show all updated Apps could be useful for some, but why on earth Apple hasn't implement slide to the left option to remove these Apps manually?! I have currently about 35 recently updated Apps just sitting there and polluting my update screen doing absolutely nothing at all...
    Hope they'll fix this in the next update.
