    So yeah.. I still have the badge that indicates that an update it's available but I'm already in iOS 7.. Any ideas of what that is?

    Thank you

    Try syncing with iTunes or rebooting your device to see if either will cause it to disappear.

    Same problem here, badge just appeared for no reason. Reboot did nothing, nor did sync.

    What phones do you have? There is an update to 7.0 (7.0.1) that is for the iPhone 5C and 5S...

    I'm on iPhone 4, running iOS 7.0. Geniuses at Applestore have never seen anything like this. 8 of them were standing around my phone completely spellbound. Particularly strange is the fact that the badge isn't a "1", it is an "l". 😳

    I was a little confused by seeing the update badge myself, because I thought it wasn't happening anymore.

    But I think I understand what is happening (though I could be completely wrong)

    In my case I had "3" in the badge, and when I went into the App Store, on the update tab it said 3 updates in pending status.

    I couldn't figure out why they were "pending". But I'm starting to think, that iOS 7 will only update the apps in ideal conditions. IE - Strong wifi signal, battery indicator over XX%, etc.

    The pending apps eventually updated themselves, and I just assumed its because I think by that time I had charged my phone and for more juice into it.

    I could be completely wrong, although I hope I'm not. Because I hope the phone takes those things into account before it sucks up more juice just to update an app when I may be running low.

    The OP is tallking about a badge on the Settings icon. If you dig into the menus, under Settings / General / Software Update. When the phone/software thinks there’s a pending software update, it gets a (1) badge on the SETTINGS icon. The Software Upgrade will never auto-update.

    This is significantly different from the App Store badging, which still occurs, but also now does auto-updating.

    YOUR issue is NOT the same as the OP's issue... your issue could be several things, including the fact that most apps have updates, over 9 million new iPhones were sold this past weekend and now over 200 million devices are running iOS 7... all of this creates a situation where the App Store is completely hammered. Also, until the past week, Apple/the carriers limited cellular downloads to 50mb - meaning that some updates would not happen unless you were connected to wi-fi. That limit was upped to 100mb just this past week.

    I have seen this a few times on iPhone 5's but not newer devices. Either a server issues on Apples end. Or the device is talking back and not fully completing the update sync - stating the device has the new iOS and there is nothing else to update.

    I am thinking that perhaps it has to do with the release of iOS 7.0.1 update. As I said, my badge just appeared the other day, it would seem to coincide with the release of that update. That particular update won't run on my iPhone 4 anyway, but maybe that's why the update doesn't show in my settings/software update. The bug in that case would be the badge letting me know about it.

    I have attached a screen shot, note the "I" rather than the typical "1" on the settings icon.
