    Does anybody know why my iPhone apps are being synced to my iPad when I plug it in to my computer? Its like iTunes doesnt know which is which.

    I never recall having this problem only thing I did was update my iTunes.

    The iPad will download all compatible apps by default from your iTunes library. You should go into your iPad in iTunes and deselect the iPhone apps you don't want, then sync again.

    Click on your device when plugged into iTunes, select apps at the top of the screen. You will see a list of apps and a snapshot of your home screen. Below the list of apps, click off "automatically sync new apps".
    Do this for both your iPad and iPhone. I had the same problem when I first got my iPad.
