Okay, dumb question coming up. Don't say I didn't warn you. I currently have an iPhone 4S (16gb) running iOS6. It hasn't been backed up in something like 45 weeks. I have tons of pics taking up most of my space. (Which is why I'm still on iOS6, I don't have enough free space to install 7 or 8.) Over the weekend I dumped all the pics and videos onto my PC and am working on deleting a lot off my phone directly (I don't want to ditch them all though). I need something like 13gb more on the cloud to successfully back everything up. I don't really want to pay for more storage because I have a a new 64gb 6 at home waiting to be activated this afternoon. Since the phone hasn't been backed up in forever, will my contacts and pics not transfer over when I sign into my apple account? (I don't even know if I'm using the terminology properly. ) Those are the only things I really care about. I want to start fresh with my apps and only install the ones I actually use. I don't think I ever sync'd to iTunes. A lot of my music was burned off cd's which, IIRC, iTunes didn't recognize so I didn't bother with it. If I sync now, does iTunes work as a temp storage for all my stuff that isn't backed up? Can someone walk me through this like I just emerged from a 10 year coma and don't really know much of anything about this stuff?
