"Update Available" Badges on SiteContents
It's a pain to identify manually all Apps that are currently offering an update. Users should see a badge on the App Launcher as soon as an update is available.

yes when you navigate to site contents you've to actively dig into each and every app in order to see if there is an update available. (True for my tenants). Combined to smartphones it would be great to have a small notification badge sitting directly on each App-Tile that indicates that there is an update available.
An other option would be to introduce a kind of tab on the site contents page that shows all available updates at once and allows me as a user to update all apps with one click.

I agree this needs a lot of work. Make an option to automatically update apps (but let users opt into it). For people who have purchased the app, show a toast or notification when an app is available. Lastly, provide admins the ability to push updates to the app for all instances installed in the farm, tenant, web app, etc.
