Hey, guys! Will an iOS 7, 5S backup be compatible with an iOS 11, 6S Plus when restoring from backup in iTunes? Thanks, all!

Most likely not. I think after 2 years it’s no longer compatible. I had an old iOS 7 backup that I tried to use on an iOS 10 device; didn’t work.

Upgrade the 5s to 11, backup, restore 6s from there.
I can't—my 5S is locked to a network not available in my country.
