I have purchased a few apps from my iphone (5, running latest updates).  WhenI sync my phone to my MBP.... the apps would normally transfer over.  Now they are not.  Please help.


If I search app store on my Mac, they say download (rather than give a price). 


How do I revert back to my apps downloading to my mac automatically?

Also, I these recently purchased apps are not giving me the update option on my Mac.


Please help.


Thank you!

    Have you tried File > Devices > Transfer Purchases From ... iPhone while your iPhone 5 is plugged in to iTunes?

    I actually have no idea why you listed those four questions and their answers above.  I don't know what if anything they have to do with your issue.


    Anyway, try looking in iTunes > Preferences > Store > Automatic Updates and make sure "Downloads" is checked and that the Apple ID shown is correct.
