    Hi, wondering when I get my X, I'd like to setup as a new iPhone instead of using my backup which has been accumulated from the iPhone 6 through to 7plus..

    When I do this, I presume iCloud contents will sync across fine, like iMessages, notes, reminders.
    I store photos in iCloud so ok with that and I don't mind re-setting up email sync.

    But my question is, will my health data sync across? Or is that only stored in a backup?
    I have a Series 2 watch.

    My health data synced thru iCloud when I set my 6+ up as new. I have 2 devices showing data source. My 6+ on previous iOS, and current iOS.

    When I did this with my 8 I lost iMessages. No big deal to me.

    I THINK all games synced over, but YMMV, I only play 2 really. The others were finished.

    You are correct. iMessages will not transfer over. You'll start with a clean slate.

    FWIW, doing anything with Messages is a lot snappier.

    Safari is about the same though...
