    It was updated in the background... and you haven't opened it yet.

    Thought it means that the app is being updated automatically .

    I believe that means you haven't opened the app after updating it. It will go away once you open it.

    Think of it as a "flashing LED indicator" for a new/updated app.

    But it doesn't flash... it's "always on".... until you open the app...

    The blue dot is there when an app is updated, regardless of whether it was done automatically or manually.

    Thanks everyone, It is indeed to notify you that this app was updated. Once you open it, it disappears.

    This happens when you install a new app or when a app was updated in the background. Basically, it's like that blue ribbon that was on new apps back in iOS 6.

    Some tweaks do disable the badge. Do you have a list of what you've installed?
