    Default App Store badges not working

    Hey everyone,

    So for about 2 months now, the App Store hasn't been displaying badges on the icon letting me know I have app updates. It'll only show a badge on the tab if you open the App Store. I have checked in my notification settings and the badge option seems to be on. Am I missing something here?

    (Not jailbroken, iOS 6.1.3)

    Same here. As a matter of fact, I just updated two apps after seeing the App Store badge display 2 awaiting updates.

    Try signing out and then signing back in to the App Store.

    Default App Store badges not working

    Ive notice this as well for the past 3 months but eh it's like whatevers.

    I dont want to loose my JB so a restore is a no go for me.

    OP, try a clean restore without restoring a back up.

    I would, but I just don't think it's enough of an issue to start from scratch over...
