Did tvOS 9.2.2 drop the app updates listing?

    I used to periodically check the "Updates" section of the "Purchased Apps" tab in the App Store to see the list of updated apps and the change logs. But after updating to tvOS 9.2.2 that seems to be gone. Am I missing something? Did it get moved? Is it just me? Did Apple just give up because most of them just say "we frequently update our app to enhance your experience"?

    It used to be on the "Purchased" tab's left column with "Recent Purchases", "Family Sharing", "Not on This Apple TV", and "All Apps". Now nothing.

    You know, I noticed this the other day myself and thought I was imagining things. I couldn't find the Updated section either. I'm guessing it's a bug because it seems like a strange thing to leave out on purpose.

    It disappeared for me too. It was very useful. Hopefully some of the Apple websites will make a stink about it so we can get it added back.

    Anyone who did not update to 9.2.2, can you confirm you still have the Updates section under Purchased Apps?

    There was a "Recently Updated" section - however it has gone missing with the recent tvOS update. It was pretty buggy though, it would reset to containing all the apps installed on your device after every tvOS update. Now it has just been removed. Maybe it will reappear after an app actually updates, it has been too soon since the recent tvOS update to actually find out.

    I hadn't done my update yet -- so yes, it was there, now it's gone.

    A couple of weeks ago I updated to tvOS 10. The updates section was still missing. Just today I looked again and it seems to be back with updates going back to the 29th. Not sure if it's just tvOS 10 or if 9 has the feature restored too..

    tvOS adds a blue dot next to newly updated apps instead. Not as useful because you can read the change log but it is more visible right from the home screen which apps have been updated.

    The updated apps list is still not in iOS 10 so the feature appears to be dead.

    I just got the Recently Updated section back. I checked after I did the tvOS 10 update but it still wasn't there. But I just checked now, almost 2 hours after I updated, and it's back!
