    I'm getting false updates in the App Store. Just started happening about half hour ago. Apps are showing as updates even though I have that version installed.

    It's happening on both iPad and iPhone leading me to believe it's a problem on Apple's end.

    Anyone else seeing this? I'm in the UK.

    Glad to see it's not just on my end then. Have you tired actually updating them?

    Yes, they are the same version as was there prior. No idea if maybe the devs rebuilt their apps with all this XCode stuff going on, or if the app store is just jacked up. Showed updates on both the device and directly in iTunes for the same apps.

    Yeah, I was trying to update them before I realised that too many were popping up for this to be normal.

    I've got one which just hangs and fails too.

    Same for me, 19 apps shown as having updates which is incorrect. As a test I selected to update one app. The "Update" icon changed to the familiar download progress/stop indicator, then immediately reverted back to the "Update" icon.

    I've been having this issue since yesterday morning. It's pretty messed up. I had an update for AOL and it wasn't even on that device.

    Maybe related to all those iOS updates rolling out now! Let's wait and see...

    i think this is a app store glitch and nothing to do with iOS updates.

    could this be xcode ghost? apple just pushing out new updates just in case.

    all the dates are in the past

    kinda doubt this is the case. apple most likely would have said so.

    I've notice this happen before over the years it's pretty rare. If the updates were actually new they wouldn't have a posted date of days or even a week ago.

    I thought it was just me... had to go check the app versions in the Settings app to confirm that they were up-to-date.

    This is most likely to do with App thinning and Bitcode to add the extra code for the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Nothing to worry about :p
