ITunes 112 and IOS 9, cleaning up Apps ?

REIUSA asked
Last Modified: 2016-01-07
I went through my iTunes library and deleted all the apps that I don't want to use, synced my iphone, but the apps are still on my iphone. Is there a way to get the iphone to update based on what is in the iTunes library?

Before I tried I backed up the phone and made sure it was synced up. I am just looking for a easy way to clean up the apps so I don't have to do it on each device and in iTunes. I have a iphone and a ipad. Is the only way to do this to delete it from the device first and then sync it with iTunes? It seems like there should be a easier way to do this. I found some articles but they don't apply to ios 9.
