Download your Purchased apps into iTunes.

I’ve just installed an IOS beta onto my iPad and again, i’ve lost all my Apps, this is a set of instructions to get them back into iTunes and sync them over to the iPad quicker than downloading them from the App Store on your Mac.

  1. Open iTunes 10.3 or later on your computer. (You can download the latest version of iTunes here.)
  2. If you’re not already signed in, click Sign In and enter your Apple ID and password.
  3. After you’ve signed in, click Purchased on the right side in the iTunes Store under the QUICK LINKS the section.
  4. From your Purchased page, click the tab for the content type you’re looking for (Music, Apps, or Books).
  5. Click Songs or Albums to change the page view and All or “Not in My Library” to view your purchased content that currently is not downloaded on your computer.
  6. Click the download icon to the right of each item to download that item. 
  7. Note: To download previous purchases on a computer, your computer must be authorized for the Apple ID that was used for the original purchase. For more information about iTunes Store authorization and deauthorization see, this article.

Additional Information

1 Previous purchases may be unavailable if they are no longer on the iTunes Store. Downloading previous purchases is not compatible with iPhone 4 (CDMA Model).
