I currently have an iPhone 5 with iOS 8.1. I have it backed up, but I think I might get an iPhone 6. I don't think I'll be able to restore from my 8.1 backup because it's a newer version. Correct? What can I do?

Oh I don't need a developer account for the 8.1 beta? With my iPhone 5 I registered my UDID. I thought I couldn't register a UDID anymore, but I just checked and I guess I could!

Get your udid registered and all should be fine. That being said I wouldn't restore from a backup I'd just set up as new.
