    I just want to backup my device or sync songs but it keeps copying apps back to itunes. I unchecked the box automatically sync new apps. I believe it used to do it on the old itunes but I'm sure I managed to stop it but since updating to the new itunes it keeps wanting to copy purchases over. Sometimes there's a warning about the purchases will be removed from my device if I don't copy them.

    I believe the setting is actually in iTunes itself, look for "transfer purchases." (I haven't really kicked the wheels on 11 yet so I'm not sure where they have this option).

    I've had a look around itunes but not seeing an option for this.
