    Take a screenshot of what apps have updated.
    Give it 24 hours. Resist the urge to refresh.
    Check again.
    I might even suggest more than 24 hours. I don't think that I see an App Store update badge every day. I'd say try waiting two full days.

    Are you on wifi most of the day?
    I’m on wifi all day. Could that be what’s causing it? I’m just glad to know I’m not the only one experiencing this issue. First world problems lol

    No, wifi isn't the issue. If you weren't I'd think that might be part of it.

    My iPad which isn’t on 11.2 isn’t having the same issues. It’s updates appear as a badge on my iPad. It’s only my iPhone that’s having this issue

    So I took your advice but without doing the screen shot. I checked what apps were up to date yesterday morning. I left my phone on wifi and checked again this morning. I had several apps update themselves like it was supposed to, so I'd have to say since I updated to 11.2 it started working for me again OR maybe because I left my phone on wifi... Which is not something I normally do.

    I'll have to stay on LTE only for a day or so and see if the app store still auto updates. I do have that option for the app store set for wifi/cellular updates.

    iOS prioritizes WiFi over cellular.
    It may very well be that the AppStore doesn’t check as often for updates over cellular as it would do on WiFi.

    There is also a limit for the size of update for cellular data, right? The update can be no larger than 150 MB. These days, that should be most app updates (and, of course, one of the changes I don't like in iOS 11 is that the app store doesn't tell you how large the update is in the list of updates tab), but there may be a few that will be too large for cellular data.

    Yes, this is true. But the size shouldn’t affect the actual updates showing up in the update section at given intervals.

    And since I have unlimited cellular data, I don’t mind update sizes.

    I had an app that used to auto update all the time. I don’t mind manually refreshing and updating.

    I am still having this issue. The ironic thing is my App Store on my iPad does tell me which apps need updating without having to refresh unlike my phone

    Have you turned off automatic update or do you still have that setting on? I ran my phone for a week with automatic turned on, and no apps were ever updated, and I never saw a badge. That is, until I plugged my phone into my computer (which I rarely do) and then suddenly app updates happened.

    Not sure why everyone keeps talking about auto updates. The OP isn't talking about that. He's not seeing updates on his phone, but sees them on his iPad.
    OP, Updates don't necessarily happen at the same time on all devices. Either give them time to show, or pull down to refresh.

    I mentioned it because the only time I can replicate the behavior is when I turn auto-update on, and it's not just the OP who sees this thread - I believe that there will be people who search for issues with updating apps on Google/wherever and be brought to this thread.

    Thank you. I’m not talking about auto update at all. I don’t get badge notifications for updates anymore. I have to manually pull to refresh in the App Store to manually see if I have any updates. It’s nothing major, it’s just frustrating

    My badges are slow to come as well. They do after a while if I don't check. But I don't have to pull down to refresh. When I open the app and tap on the updates tab, they pop right in.

    I wish my App Store was like yours. I always have to refresh to see any new updates. It works on my iPad but not my phone. My iPad always has the badge say when an update is available
