In iTunes under apps tab, it list all the apps which I have in my iTunes account. When I click on the Install button of the app, button name gets changed to will install & also on the right side it shows on which page it will be installed.

When I press Apply/sync button, On top bar it shows that it is syncing in 4 steps with some progress image. These 4 steps happen so quickly & shows the status as synced.

But, the app which I wanted to install never gets synced. My iPhone is not showing the new apps which it should show after sync.

Also, It fails to restore backup which I had taken some days back.

I am using, iPhone 5 with iOS 6.0.1 Mac book pro - 10.7.5 iTunes 11.0.2(26)

I tried restaring iPhone, iTunes and the Mac. But this problem persists.

What may be happening and how do I get the apps to sync?

By now the problem has probably been resolved, however i suggest that you download apps over WiFi or data for faster install times. Also your phone storage could be a problem. I have had a problem like this so i just decided it was easier not to use the computer. if you don't own WiFi i suggest going to McDonald's or something like that :D
