    Remove Purchases
    Hi, over the past two years, I've bought a lot of apps for my iPhone to test out, and now I don't want them on my accoutrements purchase history anymore so if I buy a new iOS device, it only syncs the apps I actually want. Does anyone know how to do it?

    You can't remove the App Store "memory" of your purchases.
    However, you can tell iTunes not to sync new purchases to your iOS devices and you can always specify which apps do/do not sync by checking/unchecking them. When you connect your iPhone to your computer, open iTunes, click on your iPhone in the left column to select it and then click on the "Apps" tab towards the top of the window to show all the apps purchased by your account. This is where you select what you do/don't want to sync and also scroll down beneath all your apps is a check box to sync new purchases. Uncheck that. You now have manual control over what is/isn't synced.

    Ok, so when iCloud is released I can just choose the apps that I want from a new device?

    There is no need to wait for iCloud, you can sync only the apps you want right now.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
