    Why is my iPad apps syncing with my iphone 5

    Hi, need help.

    When I connect my iPad or iphone to my mac, iTunes replaces the apps on one device with the other. Why is this happening. How do I set up my ipad and iphone to act individually. The same thing happens with Notes. I had a dozen or so complex notes saved on my iPhone, when i connected this to iTunes they were all replaced with the notes from my iPad. Please help.

    When you connect an iPhone or iPad to your computer, you can control exactly what syncs within iTunes. In your case I would turn off App syncing on both devices....just look at the large pane on the right when you select your device and click the appropriate tab at the top to turn the different sync options on and off. I can't remember off hand if Notes syncing is also controlled here (I am away from my Mac at the moment).
