simple approval flow with list copy failing to update one column

Hi Team

I have created a simple approval flow.

Capture.JPGCapture1.JPGCapture2.JPG

Item is added to list:
LaptopsToAdd
A soon it`s approved the item is copied to the second list
LaptopsToAddTest

And that is working fine. What I also would like to do is to come back to list LaptopsToAdd and update column who approve this item.

Don`t know why flow updates this column but for the previous add item not for the current. for example, if I add one after another 
Laptop1

Laptop2

The approval column will be not updated for the Laptop1 and the after adding Laptop2 it will update the column for Laptop1 but should for Laptop2 no so on

I suspect that the ID you are referencing in your Update Item action is from the Create Item action immediately before it rather than from the When an Item is Created trigger.  Please take a look at your Flow and verify that you are referencing the correct ID.
