    My wife upgraded her 4s to a 5s. It's still on ios6 but I want to know if I can restore onto the 5s or if I have to update the 4s to 7, backup again, THEN restore.

    If I could save a step that'd be great. (Yes I understand that either way I'll have 7 on the 5s )

    I did the exact thing, everything worked, except more than half of the apps were out of the folders/in the wrong place/out of order. Also, after you finish restoring, wait a bit before disconnecting, as itunes will download the rest of the apps onto the phone. It would say restore complete, but there's that extra step..
