    Please help.

    I received my new iPhone 6 Plus yesterday, and did a restore from iTunes backup of my iPhone 5 last night.

    Both iPhones were at iOS 8.0.

    Now, I only see single apps across all the screens.

    No folders of apps.


    I have hundreds of apps, one folder for each city I travel to, etc.

    How can I get my folders back and filled with the apps they used to contain, without manually re-creating each folder? That will take forever :(, whether I manually do it in iTunes or manually on the phone.

    Restore from your back-up again. And don't touch the iPhone while it's restoring. Not even from the Welcome screen after the first reboot. Just let it finishing restoring.

    No issues for me on setting up from my iCloud to my 6 Plus no issues. I was even shocked it downloaded all the music in the play lists that I had on my iPhone 5. I would erase and try again.

    No.

    Even if it were, how would that cause this problem ?

    I'm glad I was able to help.

    As for the cover, I don't need one. Thanks.
