I have 12 GB of downloaded apps. I always backed them up using iTunes transfer purchases option. Now that option has been taken away from us by Apple, what are our other options? By the time iOS 9.2 or whatever future iOS release, most of the 12 GB apps would have already been updated so transferring those apps would be useless. Also I will not be able to copy existing apps from my iPad to pc. So if I have to DFU restore my iPad, I have to download 12 GB apps all over again each amd every time I test a new beta or final version? There are 4 iDevices in our house and this one's a bugger. Having 50 GB data cap by my ISP is not helping. I would say F*** app thinning bu**s***. I want normal app sync back!!
