    Right before I updated both my Ipad Air2 and Iphone 6 to io9 I did a back up of each and noticed none of my apps that I updated on on the devices transfered over to itunes (if I looked under the apps tab in itunes it still showed that I had apps to be updated). I tried using the transfer purchases option in the device menu, but it still would not work.
    I then just updated the apps in itunes, completed the backups then upgraded both devices to ios9, which went without a hitch. Both devices work fine.
    I downloaded another app today and wanted to do a sync, but yet again nothing on my devices will transfer over to itunes. I checked under the "purchased" section in itunes, and the new app doesnt show there either. Even doing a simple sync doesnt transfer anything from the device to itunes either.
    Both of my devices and itunes are under the same id and the computer is authorized. I've tried signing out and in to the store on both devices and itunes, deauthorize and authorize the computer and nothing is working.
    Anyone have an idea?

    Just checking under my account info on itunes to see if something seems off, and it shows my last recorded purchase date was Sept. 16 2015. Which is definitely not the case. Is the app store jsut messed up up right now?

    Your the first I've heard of with this problem. Which doesn't mean much since it's a Sunday, a slow news day.

    Are you using he most recent version of iTunes?

    Thanks. Hadn't caught that yet. I'm sure it will be all over the news Monday.

    The thread I linked to is four days old already. I'm surprised it's not all over the news already.

    I did some more research and apparently Apple has disabled the ability to transfer purchases to iTunes on your computer from iOS 9 devices.

    I wonder what their reasoning is.

    Maybe they're trying to force an increase in iCloud usage.

    I don't see how. Nothing in an iCloud account stores your apps, not even the backups. It's all in the iTunes Store. You don't even need an iCloud account to re-download purchased apps.
