Still aknow bug. Waiting on Apple to fix. In the meantime click Check updates in iTunes and it will update the apps without affecting the apps on your devices.
Not perfect but you did ask for a workaround

This is an easy fix. Just try this: Without connecting your phone, open iTunes and go to Preferences, on the Devices tab check "Prevent...from automatically syncing". Next authorize your computer for all Apple IDs used to purchase these apps in iTunes>Store>Authorize this computer. Now connect your phone and when it appears on the left sidebar of iTunes right-Right click on its name and select Transfer Purchases (this will transfer your apps and other purchased media to your iTunes library). Right-click again and select Backup. Now go through the various tabs and select your sync settings (Music, etc.), being careful not to select to sync contacts or calendars on the Info tab unless the program you are syncing with has at least one contact and one calendar event (which will trigger a merge or replace prompt when you first sync). When you have everything the way you want click Apply to sync your phone. Note: When you sync to a new iTunes library iTunes will erase all iTunes media and replace it with the media in the library you are syncing with. You have transferred your apps so they will sync back, however you must also import your music and other media to your library or it will not be transferred back to your phone when you sync.
