ICloud :: Apps Updated On IPhone Not Showing In ITunes On MacBook?
Mar 17, 2012
Until recently, when I downloaded an app update on my iPhone, it would automatically - without syncing - remove that same app update on iTunes and vice versa. Now it does this only when I download the update to my iTunes and then sync using USB.†When I do a wired sync. I can't figure out how to make it do it again automatically.
How do I stop the contacts from my iPhone from showing on the contact app for my macbook pro? I have gone into system preferences and tried to stop it there but to no avail. This is a shared Mac so i don't necessarily want my contacts showing on there ...
Info: MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
When you sync your iPhone you sometimes get the following message:¬†
Itunes has found purchased items on the iphone thats arenot present in your itunes library.¬†
There are two reasons for this:
1. I have deleted apps in iTunes that I don't want, but not on the iPhone. I don't want to transfer the apps back to iTunes because I want them gone.
2. I have bought apps on the iPhone that I do want to keep. I want these transferred to iTunes.¬†
So if I have both types 1 and 2 then there is no good answer. Preferably iTunes should offer to sync and choose which apps to transfer and what not to transfer. Is there a way to change this behaviour? By the time I sync I don't know what I've done so I'm usually not sure how to answer the question. Sometimes I like to bulk delete apps in iTunes--it is easier than doing it on the iPhone.

I've taken a load of photos on my phone and have placed them in an album within my photo stream, they are now showing up on my iPad but not on my mac which is where i really want them. I've tried turning the wifi on and off again, I've tried turn the devices off and on again. nothing is working! all i want is my work backed up.
I was looking to access the file sharing functionality of one of my apps (AV Player HD) in iTunes 12 and wasn't able to find out where or how to do this in the new version.¬†
After a bit of searching on the internet I gathered I needed to select my device (iPad in this case) from the devices drop down, then on the left hand sidebar under the menu heading 'On My Device' I should see "Apps" listed there along with Music and Movies etc. I have:
Music MoviesTv Shows Books Audio Tones
and then some music playlists..That's it.¬†So my questions are:
1. where is 'Apps'?
2. how am I supposed to access file sharing on AV Player HD if I can't see this menu item?¬†

I have a new-to-me MacBook (running Lion) and I just downloaded all my music into iTunes. I had been sync'd with an old PC laptop previously.¬† If I choose to sync my iPhone (4S) with iTunes on the MacBook, will it delete my apps and data (as the warning in iTunes leads me to believe)?¬† I do use iCloud backup on the iPhone, and I've got all kinds of apps installed (and arranged to my liking).¬† What's the best way to have my music sync with the MacBook without having to reinstall my apps?¬†
When syncing iPhone 4, the "capacity" bar in iTunes show's as over capacity, it gruntas and graons for 5 or more minutes, then suddenly drops down to normal (meaning it was NOT over capacity), then it syncs normally. How can I get this to stop. Everything is updated to current.
I reset my MacBook Air yesterday and have plugged my iPhone 5 into the USB port. It did not show up in devices and I am unable to sync it. I have rebooted both devices several times and used two different USB leads and have seen no difference. How can I get my iPhone to show up in iTunes on my mac?¬†
I am using version 10.8.5 of OS X on my MacBook but am not quite sure what I was using before the reset.
I think I used to be able to plug my iPhone into my iMac and, via iTunes, be able to click on the icon for my phone, then choose Apps across the top and when the screen opened showing my apps on the various desktops I had built, I could click on the apps and move them from one desktop to the other, and rearrange their order.¬† Now, in iTunes 11.3.1, when I click on the app and try and drag it, the whole desktop moves.¬† It is easier to rearrange them via iTunes¬† on the iMac vs doing it on the iPhone as you can make the app icons bigger, which makes it easier to see them.¬†
Is there any way to permanently keep my iphone and iPad apps OFF of my macbook pro? Every time I connect, I ensure that "sync apps" is not checked, but then iTunes says I will lose my purchases if I don't transfer them over. This does not seem to be the case, however- aren't all of your app purchases automatically registered on iCloud? So I click transfer purchases, but this of course then puts EVERY APP onto my iTunes, which takes up a whopping 36GB of space. I can't afford to have that much space taken up! Should I just ignore the iTunes warning, or is there another way to ensure that iTunes doesn't keep these seemingly useless and HUGE backups on my macbook?
It's been sometime since I last synced my iPhone with iTunes, relying on WiFi backup instead. The problem I have, is that everytime I sync my iPhone with iTunes, iTunes re-orders my apps and installs apps that I've previously downloaded but have since deleted/uninstalled.¬†
When I open iTunes and preview 'Lewis' iPhone 4' under the Apps tab when viewing my device I can see the representation of an organised iPhone homescreen that is nothing like my own (maybe how it used to be many months ago though). I know that if I hit sync, that is what I'll see not what I had!¬†
What's interesting is that if I uncheck 'Sync Apps', what is shown (although faded) is how my iphone is actually organised. When checking 'Sync Apps', all changes to show me a chaotic and fundamentally different arrangement.¬†
I am running ios 10.5.8 & have itunes 10.8 and have both an iphone 4s and ipad 2. When i get new apps in the itunes store the apps seem to automatically appear on my iphone 4s a few seconds later, but they wont on my ipad 2. For me ipad 2 I need to actually plug it in to get them on my ipad. How can I make my ipad 2 get the apps automically?¬†
I have just synced 148 out of my total 225 apps to my new iPhone - and spent over an hour and a half sorting them out again in to my desired configuration! I am now concerned that my apps will be reinstalled and reconfigured again when I sync my music - forcing me to again spend the time sorting them out. Is this the case or will my apps stay where they are and unaffected?¬†The message I am receiving is as follows;¬†
The iPhone ‚ÄúLukes‚Äôs iPhone‚ÄĚ is synced with another iTunes library. Do you want to erase this iPhone and sync with this iTunes library?
An iPhone can be synced with only one iTunes library at a time. Erasing and syncing replaces the contents of this iPhone with the contents of this iTunes library.¬†
My iPhone 4s does not sync with itunes. It starts syncing as usual but the sync times out once it reaches "Determining apps to sync". In ITunes it shows that music, videos and pictures are synced but none are found in my phone. I have rebooted the computer and phone a few times but it didn't work.
