The iBookstore on my iPad is showing that there is an update to one of the books I have. Whenever I visit the bookstore to download the update I'm being told that it has already been downloaded and there isn't anything else I can do. I am not sure how to remove the "1" in a red circle that appears at the bottom of the screen next to the purchased tab.

iPad 2, iOS 6.1.4

    Hello idontknow_idk,


    I would suggest a few things. First close all the apps with this article:

    iOS: Force an app to close


    1. From the Home screen, click the Home button twice.
    2. Tap and hold on the app.
    3. When it starts to jiggle, tap the - to close it.
    4. Double-click the Home button and try opening the app again.


    If the issue persists I recommend restarting the iPad:

    iPhone, iPad, iPod touch: Turning off and on (restarting) and resetting



    Restarting your device

    1. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red "slide to power off" slider appears, and then slide the slider.
    2. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.


    And as a last resort you can delete the book and download it again free of charge using this:
