How do I get my apps back

my old iphone went overboard this weekend and I bought a new iphone 5 now I am trying to get all my apps and contacts back on the phone, when I plug in to my computer nothing happens, I open itunes and cannot find my apps what is going on?

You can restore using computer iTunes the old iPhone backup.
To re-download apps if still available in the App Store:
Computer iTunes: iTunes Store under STORE (left Sidebar), on the far right under QUICK LINKS > Purchases
iPhone: App Store > Updates > Purchases (make sure you are on Wi-Fi for smooth operation)

    Hold the home and power button down until your phone restarts. If that doesn't work, backup and restore using iTunes.

    Instructions on syncing your iPad can be found here:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/PH12311
    and in the accompanying documents linked from that page. Syncing your iPad with iTunes copies items, it doesn't move them. The only way apps would be actually removed from your iPad during syncing is if you had iTunes set to remove them on syncing, so check the appropriate settings in iTunes, set the book to sync as well, and then sync the iPad again.

  • AT&T just "helped"me and wiped my phone. how do I get my apps back?

    Really two questions here: what happened to my phone, and how do I get my apps back.'
    1. yesterday, my phone started showing the "connect to itunes" and emergency call only screen. I saw some advice in the forums about connecting it to a computer, but had never done so, so didn't think it applied to me. What caused this to happen??
    2. I called AT&T, who had me download itunes on my work computer (can't get up the stairs to home computer after knee surgery, specifically asked if this would damage anything on my phone and was told no. after downloading latest itunes and connecting to this computer, all my apps, photos, contacts, everything is gone. Is there anything I can do to get that stuff back? Kids' 8th bday phontos on there...

    Not sure what happened but whatever happened was a major problem if the only option was connecting your iPhone to iTunes which requires restoring your iPhone with iTunes.

    AT&T handles problems with their network, which the problem with your iPhone had nothing to do with. It would have been better to call AppleCare for this instead.
    In regards to iTunes content, an iPhone can be synced or manually managed with an iTunes library on a single computer only, and photos can be transferred to an iPhone from a single computer only.
    When transferring iTunes content and photos from another computer, all iTunes content and photos transferred from a different computer will be erased from the iPhone first with a warning message provided indicating this will occur - the first warning message provided is your iPhone has been synced with an iTunes library on a different computer.
    An exception to the warning message provided would be if restoring an iPhone with iTunes is required, which apparently was the case in your situation. Restoring an iPhone with iTunes completely erases the iPhone first followed by the firmware being re-installed. If this is done with the computer you normally sync your iPhone with, you have the option to restore your iPhone from your iPhone's backup which must be followed by a sync to re-transfer your selected iTunes content and any photos from your computer to your iPhone. None of this data is available with the computer used to restore your iPhone.

  • I downloaded 4.0.1 and lost all my Yahoo toolbar apps but still have the Yahoo search bar. How can I get the apps back? Refreshing the "gear" does nothing.

    I have Windows XP and downloaded Firefox 4.0.1. After it was installed 5/7/11, I noticed all my Yahoo search bar apps were missing. Rebooting did not help. Neither did the "gear" on the toolbar next to the yellow Yahoo search box. Internet Explorer browser still shows them. How can I get the apps back in Firefox?

    You should be able to copy it from your iPad to your computer's iTunes via File > Transfer Purchases, or you should be able to re-download it via the Purchased link under Quick Links on the right-hand side of the iTunes Store home page - if that says that it's already downloaded, then that implies that it's already on your computer

    Your apps will only be where you put them.  if you failed to put them on your computer beore updating, then they would certainly be gone.

  • HT1414 I have just upgraded my ipad to ios 5.1.1. I did a backup to itunes before the upgrade. I have been able to get my books & music back onto my ipad but how do I get my apps back onto my ipad?

    I have just upgraded my ipad to ios 5.1.1. I did a backup to itunes before the upgrade. I have been able to get my books & music back onto my ipad but how do I get my apps back onto my ipad?

    If the apps are not on your computer's iTunes (did you do File > Transfer Purchases prior to starting the update ?), then you could try downloading them to your computer (re-downloading) and then restoring to your backup and see if that restores them and their settings/content - a backup doesn't contain the actual apps, just their content/settings, so for the restore to work fully iTunes needs access to the apps so that it can restore them.
