I backed up iPhone through iTunes on my pc and made sure I transfered purchases but when I restore the back up, my apps act like I've never used them before. All data is missing, what happened? Apple is now untrusted.


iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1, BLACK 16GB

    app developers get to decide if the data in them gets stored in your backup, it's not something apple dictates. you transferred your apps to your pc, but not the data in them, so that's not where it would be. if anywhere, it would've been in the backup itself, and if it wasn't there, it seems like those apps' developers didn't choose to code them to keep your data in a backup in itunes

    I made a really stupid mistake. I restored my iphone from an empty back up so that's why there was nothing on my phone after the restore. Sorry Apple lol
