Question: Apps from Ipad to New Iphone7

Hi everyone - I have an IOS9 ipad with a few apps on there that I’d like to transfer to my new Iphone 7.


I'm using Itunes 12.6.3 on my Windows 7 laptop.


I’ve been following guidance on using itunes etc and the sync feature. But I’m stuck. I've tried the transfer purchases feature on the ipad but the transfer of all the apps is not working as I'm possibly following the procedures incorrectly.


Please can someone let me know in very simple terms the exact steps to follow to get all my apps from my Ipad to my Iphone7 please?


Many thanks in grateful advance.

iPhone 7, iOS 11.2.6

Hi Niel


I've also been trying to sync the ipad to the computer and then put them on the Iphone but that's not working - can you explain how to do this in easy steps?

If you use the same Apple ID on your iPad as you do your phone, all you have to do is go to the App Store on your phone.


Tap the circle at the top right of the page (it may contain your ID picture).

Tap Purchased

Tap My Purchases

Tap Not on this phone


The apps should appear on the right with a cloud next to them on the right hand side. Tap the cloud and they will download to your phone.


You can no longer manage apps on iTunes.

If both devices use the same Apple ID in the App Store, then these apps (or any content) will be marked as already purchased, and available with a cloud symbol for re-downloading without transaction.

You can download these again in the App Store from any device, or even set it to automatically do so. Note that some select apps are available only for iPhone or only for iPad, at the discretion of the developer.
