How can you comfortably use your devices, iPad or iPhone, when they are synchronized with a MacBook. You have all your information there and it is easy to use it anytime you want. The main problem with this process that downloaded apps can be duplicated to all devices and most of them require a lot of storage space. This problem leads many users to wonder whether it is possible to delete some applications from connected iDevice, but not MacBook.
When you complete the downloading process of applications through iTunes, it immediately creates the files for your devices after a successful synchronization. The <update> button in iTunes can be clicked in order to get the newest versions of your synced devices.
