    I need to know if I can restore my old iPhone 4S using the iCloud backup from my iPhone 5 in order to have all my data up to date. Is it technically possible ? My 4S is at 6.1.3 while my 5 is at 6.1.4 which is where my concern comes from. Thank you for your time. :eek:

    you cannot restore to a lower iOS version than the one in which you made the backup,that backup can only be restored to 6.1.4 iOS version or higher.
    Although there are a few ways around this so google it;)

    I think you have to have the backup on your computer and actually change some plist file on your phone and since you can't jailbreak an iPhone 4S on iOS 6.1.3 i think you're out of luck.

    A while back, this is what someone posted. You can give it a try but no guarantees
