Are you going to start fresh or restore from backup once you get your IPhone 6s?
I'm not planning on getting a 6s but in the past and for the foreseeable future I restore from backup. Quickest and easiest way to immediately get my phone set up the way I want it. It's never caused me any problems.
I would like to fresh install but still have the details from my text messages. You know how you can click on details and see all the attachments you've received? Is there anyway to fresh install and then get all this stuff back?
I have a 16GB iPhone 6. I'm getting a 64GB 6s. So even if some extra junk from "Other" carries on to my new phone, I don't care. At least I will save time as I don't have to install all my apps again.
I always setup as a new iPhone and just reinstall the key apps from my previous phone (there's always a bunch that I never even use on my old phone). Contacts and notes are easy to sync back and I'm not worried much about lost messages.
Restore from backup. Too many savegames.
It's a fresh install for me this time, I'm coming from Android
takes too much time to start fresh
I've never heard of any problems restoring a phone from back-ups....
Backup. I have Apple Watch data.
definitely a fresh install. gives me a chance to clear out my contacts lol.
Backup even though iCloud failed first time on 6+. Had to do iTunes method.
I have a jailbreak tweak that always follows - I changed the user agent on Safari to iPad. So I always restore from backup.
Back that baby up. Back it up! (Clap) Back it up! (Clap clap)
I always restore as a new phone when I get the new model. Besides, my backup will also have jailbreak data in it and I don't need that in the file system.
I've always thought it odd that Apple backs up and restore some jailbreak data, especially some of the settings plists
What's the benefit of that? Does it just show more content?
I used to do fresh installs every new phone, but not this time. I'm on a 2 month move streak and I don't want to lose it and all the health data I've accumulated. Wish Apple could separate health data from iPhone backups.
I usually restore from the cloud but I think I'll do a fresh install this time.
I normally do a fresh install on every new device. Just makes my OCD happy. Now what about Apple Watch data, what would I lose vs what is stored in the cloud?
if you don't encrypt the backup in itunes or icloud backup and restore, you lose your workout/activity data and its achievements. fresh install would clear out all data in your Activity app from the watch.
Apple Watch here too. Only 1 option really...silly as it seems. There really should be a way to restore only the Watch backup. I like setting up phones as new. Gives me a good chance to reevaluate which apps I actually want.
Yep, and loads pages as a desktop type website, without ever saying "you need flash for this". iPhone currently only does mobile, or desktop. Desktop leads to a lot of video issues because there is no flash.
