Not true. I have apps no longer on the app store that got restored from an iCloud backup.If an app gets removed from the app store, you can't have iCloud install it.
Those aren't in the backup. They're just in iTunes and it copies them over again. You can restore from iCloud backup or iTunes backup and it doesn't matter...it will copy the media after the backup-restore is finished.Actually, if you back up your iPhone with iTunes
, it will actually restore to what you had on your phone. As far as I know, this includes music, movies and what else.
