After updating apps on my iPhone or iPad by syncing to iTunes, the notification badge on the device does not clear. In the App Store app, instead of saying Update, it says Open, but the apps are listed under "Available Updates." If I update by downloading directly to the phone, this doesn't happen. If updates for other apps come out, the original ones disappear but the same problem happens with the new updates. iOS 8.1 didn't help. For now I've turned off the notification badge for apps. (I don't like updating directly to the phone because I don't like the list of updated apps or the blue dots). Does anyone have a solution for this? It seems like a problem that has happened on and off to people with earlier versions of iOS as well. I submitted a bug report but would love a way to fix this.
