I'm also curious what value a list of updated apps adds to my use of my iOS devices.
If you have AutoUpdate enabled and then want to know what changed, you need to have access to the list which has the release notes for each app. I find it extremely useful.

Yes, that does make sense.
What I DO take issue with is that the Update list does not clear when the 'open' button on the Update page is activated. If that would be the case, then the user would be notified and the list would gradually clear. That's a closed loop system.

<Shrug> It's not doing any harm. I'm saying this without sarcasm: just don't scroll down, ignore them. There may be an arbitrary limit like there is with Recents. We'll have to wait and see.

With respect, I agree that the manner in which the update list appears to function has not, to date, created a known problem beyond its visual nuisance. It is for me, undesirable functionality and if it's not a bug, then I will be requesting that Apple consider changing its functionality. I have a ticket open with Applecare and I'm awaiting an explanation of what exactly this behavior is, something I just don't like or something that is malfunctioning. When I do, I'll post the result.
Until then, it's all !

I know it's not annoying to many, but it is to me. I'd like to be able to turn this off.

Thank you for posting this question. I had the exact same concern. My updates stay in the Updates section and it's annoying. Once it downloads it should clear out. My question is...what happens if the app has another update? Will that move to the top or will I have to scroll down to where the app is? There is no reason it should stay for a day, week, month, etc. Serves no purpose. Another thing it does is if you search for an app in the upper right hand corner...that same search name stays there forever..even after touching the "x" button. I think there is a flaw/bug in this entire update section.

I agree that the items in this list should be able to be deleted by the iOS user.
Regardless of their apparent permanence, there is a precedent for editing and deleting items in most lists in iOS. At the very list, this U.I. convention in iOS should be applicable in the App Store Update list.

truly almost, no actually its more annoying than the old way missed calls couldnt be deleted w/o deleting the entire call list .. thats now fixed ... but this is a visual annoyance .. i dont want a list like this, i see the notification, i read about the improvements, i install and then i want it gone ...

Go to Settings/General/Date & Time/Turn Automactically Off. Then set your date into the future (I did like 6 mos) then Open App Store and it will clear out all the updated apps. Then go back and turn back on Date & Time Auto Update.
Note* I have not had the time to figure out the magic time span that has to past before the app updates clear themselves from the list. Perhaps someone can test that and post back, or I will when I have more time.

thanks but why should we have to do such a silly thing to get something annoying fixed?
Currently Being ModeratedSep 26, 2013 3:49 PM (in response to Roush.2568)
GREAT IDEA!!! KUDOS!
Ok so i did what you said and first i went forward in time about 11 days (Oct 7) to a random date and the list was still there. THEN i went forward 3 weeks exactly and VOILA! that annoying list is GONE!
SO its somewhere between 2-3 weeks...im guessing 2 weeks
but once the list is gone you kant keep trying.
so maybe someone else has tried 2 weeks exactly.
THANKS soooo much for this suggestion!!!!
Ill take it for now til they FIX it...

I agree Daryl its dumb thats why I had to find a way to clear it. (I know you cleared your list also haha)
MzKitti2U Im glad I could help. Thank you for taking the time to test out the time span!

That is just stupid to have to go in and change your date forward and then back. So are you going to keep doing this everytime there is an app update?
Needless to say...I went into the Apple Store today and talked with the manager. He said yes...they are aware of it and they have even investigated it on their own. It's not a bug...Apple just chose to keep the app updates in the queue. He didn't know the exact length of time but he said it will more than likely drop off after a certain period of time. And if there is another update to an app in that list...it will rise to the top.
