I think I know the answer but I'd be guessing,
Looking at upgrading my iPhone in the new year, do all my apps carry across with the the new phone?
Hate to have to get them all again
11-10-2012, 07:20 AM #2Do apps transfer from other hardware?
I'm going "Fully Mac" in the new year, (thats is I don't go broke in the mean time )
Will be getting an iPad for Xmas, (iHope), and iMac early in the new year
When I get the iPad, like my iCloud info on the iPhone
Will all my apps transfer from my iPhone as well?

They do not somehow magically download to a new device.
All app purchases are tied to your Apple ID and are available for download from any iOS device that uses your Apple ID.
You can backup your old phone in iTunes and then restore that backup to the new phone.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Guess the apps are not that expensive in the first place

Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Personally speaking, I'd rather set a new device up AS a new device *which is an option when going through iOS setup* and do as you said, just go to the App Store and iTunes store and use the "purchased" tab in order to re download my previously downloaded apps and songs/videos etc. Why would I rather do it this way? Well for one thing, I'm a stickler for starting fresh. Secondly, I may not want every little dumb thing I've previously downloaded. These are just two reasons. There are more, but I digress.
