I smashed the screen on my 64gb iPhone 6, but have a 16gb iPhone 5 to use while it's away under insurance.

Everything is backed up to iCloud, and most is pictures. How can I restore apps, emails, and notes to the iPhone 5 but not the pictures, as they won't fit?

Thanks in advance

Does you 64GB smashed screen iphone boot up? If so when you plug it in you can download all of your images. Maybe you could also then delete the images as they appear on you 16GB iphone from the cloud. Maybe?

I'd rather keep them all on iCloud. I doubt it would let me attempt to restore onto the iPhone 5. Surely there's a simpler way of doing it.
