AppStore badge bug
Ok, I know that the only way to see if there is an update for one of my apps is to open the appstore. But why then the badge shows up after that? Even if the appstore is not force-closed - it doesn't show the badge automatically when there is update. Can anyone help me to fix this?

The app store only checks for updates automatically once a week. When you open the app store manually it checks for updates right away, hence the badge showing up after you open the app.

On another note, I have another question that could be a bug also (?) it's happened to me twice on my iPhone and on a rare occasion on my iPad. When in the app store browsing on wifi, sometimes I will click into an app to get addl info on it if it interests me and I will get a pop up suddenly saying "cannot connect to app store" (or something along this lines) I had to go in and shut off my wifi, and then switch it back on--then it was fine.
Any one else experience this?
Sorry to derail your post OP but I fig'd this may be an app store bug also.

I was literally 5 feet away from my router also and had full signal, so idk. As long as it's just a rare thing I can deal with it, but if this begins to happen constantly then i'll make a trip t the genius bar if necessary
