    Does anyone know how to set the App Store icon to show that red circle with the number in it to show the number of apps that need to be updated? I keep having to check manually and only then is when it lets me know. I have badges turned on so idk why the number won't show up.

    Mine's been doing that way since the beginning of iOS 7, when they added auto update. I think it works, but takes forever. Sometimes 24 hours. But I check the store before that long most days. I have another app that alerts me when I have an update. It's red badge is more prompt. It's called AppShopper. You have to mark apps in it that you own and it gives you alerts. Also a wish list for alerts.

    The App Store app just doesn't do right. When I restored my phone, it worked good for 2 days, then stopped.

    Funny it's already checked on. Maybe it takes some time to show up? It should show it without me having to actually go into the App Store right?

    Mine is on as well. But I rarely see the red badge. I hear on iMore there's an update on an app, but my badge doesn't show, I've tested it and it sometimes does take about 8 to 24 hours.

    My always displays the number of updates with a red circle badge and a number inside. It will show the number of new updates for the apps. I have 8.1.3 that's just on my device. It should be the same on across all devices right. ?

    The app updates does not get "pushed" like email and stuff. So chances are you will visit the store before it checks for new updates itself (don't know how often it does that) and the red circle will appear when you visit the store.

    It hasn't always been like that. In iOS 5 and 6, the badge showed immediately. It stopped in iOS 7.

    If you have automatic update on, you don't really need to open the AppStore app or worry about the badging. But doing so will cause the update badging to appear and the update process to start manually.

    I have the automatic update feature on (Settings > iTunes & AppStore > Automatic Updates > Updates > [ON]), and don't give it a second thought.

    And you're sure they update on their own? I'm a little OCD about updating apps since coming from android.

    You can check the App Store app and see what applications were updated on what date. I do this often to calm my own OCD.

    If the setting is ON, they will.
