    so is there a reason why after you update an app, it stays in the update section? it shows it as finished and the date just says open...

    this is annoying. id like to clear them all.

    From what I've heard, they clear out automatically after a few days and there is no way to do it manually, that I am aware of.

    They clear manually - would be nice to see them disappear right away after being updated.

    Last 14 days of updated apps history stays there. Just how it is in the iOS 7 app store now.

    2 weeks is a long time. With auto update though at least you don't really have it see that page much.

    Well, it doesn't actually do anything, just a list of apps in the Updates tab of the App Store. A minor annoyance at most, but nothing really beyond that.

    They leave it there because of automatic updates, then you can look and see what apps have been updated and what the update was about (click on "What's New"). When you do manual updates you have a chance to check it out before updating. So, that is the reasoning for it. Otherwise you would not know what apps were updated and, if you something worked differently, you wouldn't know why, this way you can come back to this.

    At this time (iOS 7.0), update on your iOS device manually or automatically, they seem to stay there for two weeks, then disappear. There are no known settings to change this, no known ways to delete them. At least the number flag goes away. (There were threads on this during the betas.)

    If you wire into your computer and sync via iTunes, the updates will not show here.

    Since the updates are sticking around for a while on that page how on earth do you collapse the details of the updates after you expand them??

    Close the app store from the multi tasking.
