Whenever I press "Get" to download an app in iTunes (either on iOS or Windows OS), apps are installed in my iPad and never to my iPhone.

However, after "Get" becomes "Downloaded" and I go to App Store on my iPhone, I see a down-arrow in a middle of a cloud. When I press it, then the app is installed in the phone.

How to fix this ?

Settings > iTunes & App Store
Enable Automatic downloads for Apps

  • Thanks for your answer. But, in fact, this option is enabled already in my "iTunes & App Stores" settings.
