: Rearranging Apps

Just spent a bunch of time rearranging my many apps on my iPad (I find it easier that doing it in iTunes). When clicking Apply in iTunes, all of my time was wasted as iTunes put them back where they were. Bummer. Is there some way around this?

I always back up my iPhone or iPad first thing when I plug into my laptop. That way the apps stay in position on the device. If you don't, I think it might revert to the previous backup before you unplug it and causes your issue. Just a guess.

I'll try that. I really don't like arranging the apps in iTunes as it's too "clunk" and hit or miss when dragging.

Apple failed miserably in their method for rearranging apps in iTunes. It is brutal. Why they did not make it a simple drag and drop from one page to the other is beyond me. It is a convoluted mess.

Well put. I took your approach of backing up first and that did it. Thanks.
