    I found the screen (finally! -- thank you, ovonbismark), but the Check for Updates button does not do anything.  This used to work just fine in iTunes 10. 


    Does this mean that iTunes on your computer will not be synched to your device (iPhone etc)?

    Finally!  Thanks.  One addition, once you select "Apps" from the pull down on the left, look for the button labled "N Updates Available" in the lower right, click it and the updates begin to download.  Once done, do a synch, the updated apps will now synch to your device.

    When i click on "13 updates available" instead of going to the next screen where i can click update on the apps I want to update ..... a screen pops up saying "No updates available" !!!  It started with 5 updates availble and now ist up to 13 updates availble but I cant update from itunes. I can only update on my iphone and Ipad which does NOT update my ituens app library.

    Im going around in circles trying to update my apps becuase itunes is notifying me.... only to be then told.. there is nothing to update....

    Another way to get the apps portion is to use the "View" menu to enable the "View Sidebar" option.  That returns the display to something similiar to what it was before.  You can then click on the "apps" and get the expected apps display.  It has the "Check for updates" and "Get More Apps" buttons.  It is a shame they hide things...

    I have the same issue with my updated apps not syncing to the ipad. I download all of the updates to my existing apps. In the update/will update/remove box each new update shows update in the box. I choose sync and the usual process begins until right after itunes indicates that it is "determining the apps to sync" and then it stops. All of the new updates continue to show update in the box rather than the remove option. Nothing has been transfered to the ipad.


    One other thing that may help those of us that are having this problem. In trying to solve this issue I even set up a new library. I did an initial sync for this new library and it told me correctly that my ipad had previously purchased applications on it that were not in my library and asked if I wanted to transfer them to the new library. I indicated yes and nothing would automatically transfer to the new library. Only after I used the files/devices/transfer purchases from ipad option did all of the previous applications trasfer back to the itunes library.

    Its not we can't download it is it doesn't automatically sync the updated apps to your device

  • Jon007 Level 1 Level 1

    I'm having the same problems too with iTunes 11, an iPhone 4S and an iPad with Retina Display.  It doesn't seem to matter which device I download the updates on - when I sync it doesn't move them to the others.  It's using 3x more download allowance than necessary, and some games such as Tin Tin are nearly 1GB in size - so downloading that 3x is a huge waste of our home broadband allowance.

    2. File -> Devices -> Transfter purchases from "XYZ" device


    This used to happen automatically when you synced an iOS device with the updated app.



    This suggestion works perfectly to sync App Updates (between iOS device and computer).

    It's an extra step, and will hopefully be fixed in a software update... but it works for now.



  • ukheather Level 1 Level 1

    My problem is that I used to download updates on itunes - plug in iphone - app updates transfered automatically to my phone


    Now I download updates in itunes - plug in iphone - app updates have to be manually synced one by one by clicking update next to each app on the iphone screen in itunes


    this takes so much longer


    I am trying to find out if this is a bug, or if this is how it works now

  • caseyshanks Level 1 Level 1

    It is not a bug, but you don't have to click update button next to each app, clicking one will do, iTunes will automatically update all the apps that needs updating as long as you have updated them on your iTunes.

  • Steve Taylor1 Level 5 Level 5

    I have this same behaviour on my machine. I finally figured out it was because I was logged in with another apple id. Logged out and logged in with my old id and the updates work. Itunes seems to display you have updates available regardless of which id you are logged in with.

  • ukheather Level 1 Level 1

    For some reason it is working fine now

  • NextelMichaelG Level 1 Level 1

    iTunes 11.x fReekin' bLows!.. Before, you simply selected which apps you wanted to update, iTunes downloaded them, you hit SYNC, and apps would update to your iPhone.. I just did that and none of the updates synced to my iPhone.. an additional step is required now! you must click on your device (iPhone), click on the Apps tab for your device (not in the iTunes Sidebar but for your device) then all the app updates you've selected and iTunes downloaded, you have to select "update" which changes to "will update", ALL ONE BY ONE.. smh.. we need Steve Jobs back from the grave, this is STOOPID!!

  • crankyshooter Level 1 Level 1

    I can't see the apps label on my itunes11 sidebar.  The other labels e.g. 'music' are all showing, but not apps.  Suggestions anyone?

    Sure would be nice if I could delete a post if I change my mind. I guess I'll just edit it to fill it up with garbage.
