New apps keep popping up on my iPhone that I didn't purchase. These apps don't show up in the iTunes account on my laptop either. Anyone know what's going on?

that seems super suspicious. I'd probably wipe that phone. I'd even contact apple support about that. Super suspicious.

You've confirmed that the AppleID in use on your phone is the same one that's in use for iTunes on the laptop?

One account is .mac the other is .me, I assume that is all one account. My previous iPhone was given to the grandkids but they established their own iTunes account.

I think that's where the solution is. Your assumption that the two accounts are the same is false and I wouldn't be surprised, regardless of whether the grandkids have their own account, if the ID on your old phone is still the same as the one one your current one.
