I had my interview on march 22nd 2017, and the interview went very well, however my case was been held for review.. since then i haven't heard anything from USCIS. I however received my i130 approval notice in my mail and d noticed was dated 03/26/2017 but my Case status online still says case was received. Same thing for the i485 , it still shows interview is scheduled. Is it possible my i485 has also been approved but not yet updated?
Take a breath and a step back. These things take time. Who knows why it is being held for review; background checks (fingerprints and/or name check) or a simple/complex review by a supervisor who may or may not be in the location where you interviewed. In addition the online status, often times is incorrect. Wait for another 2-4 weeks, afterwards you could attempt to make an info-pass, call USCIS and/or hire an attorney to assist. Good luck.

Yes, that is quite "possible", and keep in mind that the USCIS case status site is hardly ever updated on time and normally lags behind any last action taken in your case.
You'll need to remain patient, USCIS has, by law, up to 120 days after an interview during which to render a decision in a case. Approving an I-130 is one thing, whereas approving one for LPR status through the approval of the I-485 AOS application is quite another..

The answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
This situation likely just requires some patience as it can take a while to get results after your interview and the website isn't updated immediately. If you have concerns that something is amiss, you could schedule an infopass or if that is unproductive and you still have concerns you could consult with an immigration attorney and the attorney could look into it for you. However, you likely just need to remain patient as USCIS works through the process. I wish you the best of luck!
