    I have an iPad mini that is going to fail soon because it's used for many years. I don't want to use an iPad anymore but I want to buy an iPhone. Can the backup created for iPad be transferred to iPhone? By the way, my iPad is still on iOS 7.03, never updated. Will there be problem or any loss of data if restoring the backup to the newest recent iOS ?
