iTunes Store: App updates still wanting to update after updating
Apps from Apple's popular iTunes App Store are not properly updating after users attempt to download the newer versions of their mobile programs.
Apple Support Discussions user "T. Edwards" reports:
I've had it 3 times now (both in iTunes and on the iPhone)After asking Apple for support, users report that the recommendation is to delete the Apps that are not acting properly and download them again. However, ASD user "Stuart Chapman" relays:
It says I have an app update, so I update the app. But then it STILL says I have the same app update to do and dont know how to get rid of the (1) that hovers on the app.
I also have the same problem. It started earlier this week. It's always the most recently updated app that gets 'stuck' and iTunes thinks that it needs to download an update even though the update has already been downloaded and installed. Yesterday it listed an update for 'Trip Advisor' even though I had already downloaded and installed the update.There does not appear to be a fix for this on the user's side. It appears that Apple must solve the issue and roll it out. Should Apple update this issue, we will be sure to report on it.
This morning the same update was still showing. However, when I clicked 'check for updates', iTunes found other apps that required an update. It downloaded those and then 'Trip Advisor' disappeared from the list of updates and instead now the latest app to be updated is now stuck in 'update available' mode. Very frustrating. I have tried completely deleting the impacted apps and then re-downloading. Doesn't help.
