    Ok, so my PC with my iTunes account that's linked to my iPhone is deader than dead. Not only that, but the backup I made doesn't work either, leaving my iPhone somewhat orphaned.

    So, what I was thinking of doing, is plugging in the iPhone to my Mac and syncing it with iTunes which will of coarse wipe it. But, can I then restore the phone from iCloud, and when syncing with the Mac again, it will copy all my apps across to the Mac?

    I know you can move the apps over into iTunes with this menu option.

    Thanks, I'll give it a go. Music I'm not bothered about, but it's the apps I don't want to loose.

    Make sure you are logged into the iTunes store before you connect your iPhone
