    Has any one noticed the little red number on the AppStore icon in iMessage ?
    What is it and how can I get rid of it ? I have it on both iPhone & iPad but not the same number .

    I think it means there are updates to some of the apps you have that support iMessage....do you have any ‘Stickers’ installed for example?

    Hi Jazz ! Yes I do . I'm sure it means there are updates but I have no idea how to update them .
    All apps in the regular AppStore are updated

    EDIT : I tried opening all the apps that were in the sticker drawer but I don't use as stickers ( Dropbox , Shazam , Le Figaro and others ) and they updated !!! So the little number is gone now .
    And now I'll know how to get them off when they come back ...

    I hope this tread will help someone .

    Have you tapped on the gray App Store icon by the camera icon?
