Were you able to fix this? I'm experiencing this problem, and it's driving me nuts!

This solution worked for me. Let me know if it works for you.

My solution was far from scientific. What I did in iTunes was go to my iPhone and on every tab (app, tones, music, movies, etc.) uncheck the sync feature then sync the iPhone, after the sync was complete I then rechecked the boxes I just unchecked and the app sync worked. My issue was never with movies, photos, tones, etc. from syncing it was only with the apps but somehow unchecking everything was my only fix.

I am having this issue recently, that everything syncs except the apps, on both my iPhone and my iPad. I update them in iTunes on my iMac but when I sync, they still show as needing to be updated in iTunes on the iPhone and iPad.
I read Imack769's suggestion to uncheck the different items, sync, recheck them and sync again. When I go to the apps tab, there is no box to check for syncing. Did they move it?
And I agree with others that they box at the VERY bottom of the list of apps on the Apps tab page, that has a box to check "automatically install new apps" is not very clear. I was suspect what it meant, not wanting to install any apps on my ipad that are for the iphone and vice versa. It would help if they use more clear language such as "automatically install updates to any apps already installed" or something like that.
Hoping to hear back on the best way to get my apps syncing the updates again. It seems very tedious to have to update them on each device when they have always synced with the backup nicely.

Ironically my fix was found on the day Apple released the last iTunes update. Now back to your problem, my fix was me just trying anything I could. That said I understand the checkbox in apps is to sync any newly downloaded apps to my device; however, in playing with that checkbox alone never corrected my problem. The only way to correct my sync issue was to uncheck everything in all tabs and then sync, once the sync completes I rechecked the boxes to my original setup and it worked. I can't explain it but that was all I did. I have to ask this issue started after I upgraded to Mavericks, it was never present in ML. Are you running Mavericks?

Yes, I'm running Mavericks and I think my issue started about the same time.
When you say you unchecked everything, I do not see any place to uncheck sync apps. Where did you uncheck that specifically?

Sorry, when said uncheck everything I mean go into each iTunes tab on your iMac for your device (photos, podcasts, etc.) and uncheck any sync feature. As for the apps all you can do is uncheck the box that states sync new apps and uncheck it then perform a sync. When the sync completes you can recheck all the items you unchecked and hopefully it works as it did for me. Anything beyond that I have not troubleshot as my issue was fixed. BTW, did you perform a clean install of mavericks or an upgrade? I did a clean install on both my MBP and Mac Pro and had issues with both syncing apps, maybe it was the way my devices (2x iPhones and an iPad) were configured that had the issue.

For clarification (at least as it applies to me), this is not a Mavericks issue, nor is it an iTunes 11 issue. I believe my problem goes back to iTunes 10 and Mountain Lion. It must have to do with a corrupted preference or something of the like.
