    I know this question has probably been answered before, but iOS7 has changed so many things, I wanted to be clear.

    I currently have an iPhone 4 8GB I'm upgrading to an iPhone 4S 16GB. After I get my provider to switch the service over to new phone. As long as my new phone is upgraded to iOS7 can I just plug it up to my Macbook and it "Restore" and it will set my new phone up with exactly what my old phone had, or is there some caveat?

    A restore will be fine.

    I just upgraded from a 4S to a 5S and the worst part of it was backing up my 4S with iTunes, it took a couple of hours. Restore took about 30min once I got the right driver installed on my WIN8 machine :mad:

    Don't forget to apply updates in iTunes to get all your apps over too.

    Easy as pie once the PC sees your new phone.
