    Hokay, so I'm going to be queueing up outside a local Verizon store Friday, the same store where I converted fully to Apple with my 4S. I'm going to be getting the 6+ and have an odd question about restoring my data from backup.

    It has been said that the higher capacity 6s and 6+s will come with iWork and iLife preinstalled. Is there a way I can restore the backup of my (soon to be) iOS8 iPhone 4S onto the 6+ and not have to reinstall iWork and iLife?

    Thanks for any help!

    Restoring from backup will most likely replace what is there, but reinstalling them is easy. Just find them in the App Store while on wifi (they are big) and click on download. They will not cost you anything.

    FYI ... restoring from backup does not delete the iWork / iLife apps. They will all be there after your restore, and you will need to delete them if you don't want any of them.
