it is unsolved in that thread
i am sure the sync wasnt done
coz usually the latest app will be adding in and the older version from ipad will be deleted into bin
thats what i used to know and iphone does that way

and while at that stage, it just stop
newer version of apps didnt sync into ipad...

Some find that waiting does indeed clear it up. If yours didn't finish and given the rather slim details I think you are thinking like the new consumers I'm encountering. That is, there is a button to click to fix it. Sadly I'm finding that this area is a minefield of issues but so far, if there is nothing wrong with the host (Windows or Apple PC) then it will eventually finish.

I'm encountering folk that bought an iPad and then expect Apple to fix their Windows PC or make iTunes "deal" with PC issues.

Try this on another PC and my bet it will sync there or at the Apple shop.

i have tried many methods man

i restored my ipad twice and of coz i chose restore from backup
or i should restore as new ipad and test again
if nth happened or what, i then restore again from backup?
will backup missing if i restore as new ipad?
i am not sure about this

and something had happened after restoring
some existing apps couldnt be re-installed from itunes
so, i have to delete them from ipad one by one
and reinstall again from app store from ipad
then i sync again, and of coz...
brand new app still cant sync into itunes

then, i uninstalled itunes, but apparently it is difficult to completely remove coz after i reinstalled,
the contents are still inside, i searched and said i need to do many steps to had it completely removed
i afraid it might affect other softwares, so i didnt dare to give it a try

also, i uninstalled few apps that i installed lately and sync
it still couldnt work
it just stop and finished at the stage where "waiting or preparing changes to be applied"

my iphone still working fine
as, whatever app i updated or installed new app
once i hit sync in itunes, the older existing app will be deleted and new app will be transfer into itunes
all these are no longer happened to my ipad, it used to
i know i can select transfer purchase from ipad to itunes
but this is not a solution right...

In reply to: err

it is very very weird
i usually check off the option "Automatically sync new app" in App's section in itunes
both iphone and ipad
they used to work right...

i just checked it on for my ipad, and new app manage to sync into itunes like it used to

iphone still work as it is with that option OFF
and my iphone is jailbroken, ipad no jailbreaking

I'm not on your PC so I can't diagnose it exactly. However when I see this issue I always pull out a plain jane laptop and go for sync there. If it works on the other computer I know there is a PC issue.

It does not tell us what it is and that brings up a really good question. I would write it like this -> What was this industry thinking?
