    I have several Apps that I do not wish to update. Some because I no longer have them installed (so why are they even listed?). Some are wanting to be updated beyond the version I currently have on my iPod and iPad. How do I remove them from the update list?

    You cannot if you are talking about iTunes (any app in iTunes will show available updates even if not installed on your device)

    If you are talking about AppStore on your device, then try Update Hider for iOS5 - if jailbroken
    If not jailbroken, you cannot remove them.

    Good Grief!



    I don't jailbreak, so I guess I'm stuck with a list of annoying apps in the AppStore Update area. Shoot!

    You should only receive App update notifications for the apps you have installed on your device. I just tested this by deliberately removing one of the 18 apps on my phone that need to be updated and then the number changed to 17 immediately afterward.

    Yes, restarted, hard shutdown, and made it a batch of peanut butter cookies! Still the deleted App remains on the AppStore Update list. Perhaps it's lonely. {-;

    Have you tried re-installing it then reboot, then removing it again.

    That was a superb idea! I reinstalled one of the Apps in question, then tried to delete it. Gone! Gone from my iPod; gone from the Update list! Just plain GONE! Yippee! Coffee time!

    Now I'll try it on the other 2 persistent Apps.

    After that, I would like to know how to remove Apps from the Update list but NOT the iPod, and without jail breaking! OK, impossible now, but I can dream, right?

    Thank you!

    I have 139 pending updates. Most of them are for items that I've decided I no longer want and deleted.

    Surely Apple has come up with a solution to this by now!

    You have an available update listed for an app that isn't on your device?
