After apple made it impossible to save and restore apps to and from iTunes and instead started relying solely on AppStore redownloads to restore apps, combined with the fact that I can't manually install earlier versions of apps on the AppStore even if I wanted to, I'm wondering why I get the exact same version of the app back after restoring from a backup? I.e. I have the same app updates waiting for me in the AppStore after a backup restore, following an erase of all contents and settings — which in my case was also followed by a restore in iTunes to a new version of iOS.
As someone who updates apps individually and manually I think it's perfect since some of my apps will become useless if updated, but I didn't expect it.
iOS 10.3.1 -> 10.3.3
