    I updated to the new IOS 7. I like everything, but one problem that I've encountered and not sure how to correct it... When I go to the App Store to update an app that I was notified about, it does update with no problem, BUT, the app never disappears frm my update list. I only have the option to open that particular app. Is there a way I can delete if from the list of apps that was already updated?

    My understanding, from reading about it on the Interwebz, is that those updates will stay on the update page (they'll change from "update" to "open").

    My guess as to why is so that those people who elect to have their iPads update apps automatically can have a chance/time to see what apps have been updated. Otherwise, with the auto-update feature, how would you ever know...?

    That's my guess anyway - and I hear each updated app disappears from the list after a week or so. Or some time. They won't stay forever...

    Yes, it looks like the Updates tab will now keep a history of recently updated apps. This makes a lot of sense when you realize you can now set apps to update automatically. If it didn't you'd have no way (short of scrolling through all your Home Screens and looking for blue dots) to see what apps had recently been updated.

    If, like me, you have not enabled automatic updates, fear not. Apps with updates available, but not downloaded, will appear at the top of the list with and UPDATE button, just like before; and the Update All option is still available (when applicable).
