Anyone else have this problem? I can't get this notification to go away, its not an update because I'm running the newest one. (5.0.1)

That's showing you have an app that's been updated, not an iOS update. Go into the app store and update the relevant item.

Sorry, just saw the one on the bottom. That's odd.

Yeah sorry if its not clear, its the SETTINGS APP itself that has the notification, I tried force quitting it as well.. nothing.

Try a hard reset (Holding down Sleep/Wake an Home button, until Apple logo appears)

I tried.. nothing.

It could be something very important..Its funny how no one else seen this before haha

I'd take it into the Apple Store and let one of the geniuses take a look at it. I'd be curious to see if they've dealt with this in the past or know what, exactly, is causing it.

I can't believe nobody's pointed out that the badge on the settings app means that there is an over the air update avaiable for iOS 5. This is a new feature with iOS 5. Just go into Settongs, General, Software Update, and you'll see a "download and update" button.

I've had exactly the same since the day I had my 4S. I've taken it back to the shop, the staff there have no idea how to get rid of it either. They did a reset, that hasn't worked. it's not a software update, IOS 5 is up to date on my phone. In the end I've resorted to moving the Settings icon onto the second page of my phone so I can't see it any more and it doesn't annoy me!

Its not an OTA update because I've tried, and it is updated to the last update.. I mentioned that earlier.

Im on vacation so when I get back to my residence I'll have to take it over to the Apple store.
