My kid currently has an iPhone 5 (16MB) running iOS 6
& she just got a new iPhone 5S 32MB
Will need to copy over to the 5S
a) about 200 games/apps to the new phone
b) all the existing contacts, reminders etc
c) all existing SMS and Whatsapp messages
d) preferred Wifi settings/services that the
phone will auto-connect when within range
e) any other items? Pls advise
The 5S comes with iOS 7.05: we can keep this
or upgrade it to 7.1
I followed the instructions in the above link
using iTunes 126.96.36.199 on my Win 7 laptop to
backup the 5 & then restore to 5S
Does the above steps backs up only the
apps & data but skip iOS backup?
After clicking on "Backup" option, a message asking if
I want to backup "Mirotic apps" appears & I answered
OK & got the attached screen.
Is this correct option to select?
Is Mirotic the name of my kid's iPhone 5?
Sort of hostname of a computer?
Just after the restore, got a few messages saying there's about
20 odd apps that require this computer to be authorized.
Those payable apps were purchased using my wife's Apple Id
previously, so authorized my laptop using my wife's Apple Id,
right? So that I could reinstall back those apps from Appstore?
After restoring, the Contacts & SMS messages are ported over.
However, all the various apps (free & payable ones) from the old
iPhone 5 were not seen in the new iPhone 5S. Whatsapp messages
also not there. How should I proceed to get them into the 5S?
How can I check/view what's been backed up to my laptop's
iTunes? (apps, data, SMS/whatsapps messages, photos,
mp3 songs etc)
when I reconnect this iPhone 5S back to my laptop's USB port,
it prompts whether to update to iOS 7.1 & when I answered
"Update", it starts backing up the phone but doesn't appear
to update it to 7.1
