You'll have to excuse me, I've been away from the iOS world for a few years now, but on my old iPod Touch when I synced it with iTunes it would sync a local copy off all of my apps. Now I notice it only keeps the local copies if I buy them from iTunes, and then sync them to the phone. If I buy the app from my phone and then sync, the apps do not get copied to my computer. So my question is what happens if I were to get a new iPhone? Do I have to download all of my apps again from iCoud on the new phone? It would seem to be a lot faster to just sync them all from iTunes.
