I'm thinking of setting up the iphone5 again as new, instead of restoring from backup, to see if it will improvement my battery.

If I set up as new and download the apps from scratch, will icloud bring back the app data that it currently has?

thanks

There are a couple apps that actually use iCloud sync and would restore with iCloud. However probably 95% don't and would only work if you restored a backup.
