    Hi,

    My favorite browser, atomic web, is no longer on the US app store. I have it on my old iPhone 5s but cannot install it on my 6s+.

    I was thinking of transferring the purchases to my computer using itunes 12.3.0.44 but it isn't transferring. I checked the itunes>mobile applications folder in MUSIC folder and apps are not being transferred to this folder when I hit backup/sync.

    How do I transfer this app from 5s>mac>6s+ using itunes?

    There is a thread that discusses this inability to transfer apps. Search App thinning.

    Thanks. This is good but the problem is if a purchased item is no longer in the app store.

    You need third party software which can transfer the app to your Mac and into iTunes. Check out iExplorer or iMazing. Neither are free, however.
