    I did a fresh install of iOS 9 and now I can't "sort" my apps on my iPhone. I assumed it was because iTunes wasn't up to date so I waited and installed all my apps manually.

    But now with El Capitan and also a newer iTunes, it's still not working.

    If I bring back my iCloud backup of 8.4.1, they show up. But not with a fresh install of 9.

    Anyone know what's going on or have a solution?

    I have this problem too. Apps don't show up in iTunes on Mac OS or Windows 10 for either my 6s Plus or 6 Plus. They show up, however, for my iPad 4.

    There is a short thread about this over on the Apple forums https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7243922

    "app thinning" aka app sync breaking, ruined everything to do with apps going to & from itunes

    I thought I was the only one having this problem with my iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2. I believe they may fix this issue in another update.

    Did you do an update only or did you do a fresh install? I'm having the issue with a fresh install. But not with just an update....

    Downgrade from 9.1 with my iPhone 6 Plus, then updated to 9.0.2. Normal update with iPad Air 2. Fresh install of El Capitan.

    Same here.

    I did a "El Capitan" Fresh installation and I didn't backup my .ipa apps (from iTunes Mac) before doing the installation... Now I'm very frustrated because I can't transfer some removed apps from the App Store (and I purchased them) and I've got them locally in my iPhone/iPad... however Apple has removed the ability to transfer purchased apps from IPhone to the Mac.

    I don't know if it's possible to transfer with other apps my local ".ipa" from my iPhone to my Mac. I don't want to loose some apps who are very important in my iPhone, and I can't re-download from purchased App Store because they have been removed!!!

    Sorry for my English

    Apple, PLEASE introduce "TRANSFER PURCHASED APPS" feature AGAIN in iTunes...
