Wondering if anyone knows of any third party apps that do this? According to Apple the only way is to backup via iTunes then restore from that backup. I have an iPhone 5. I am buying an iPhone 6. I want to set the 6 up as a new phone but keep the contacts and SMS messages from my 5. The contacts I can backup via iCloud (I've never used iCloud always backed up with iTunes) So does anyone know of any apps that will let me transfer messages from my 5 to my 6? Thanks.
