    I'm thinking it maybe a good idea to update my 5s to OS 8 clean up any issues and do some housekeeping than make a nice backup for my iPhone 5s so when the 6 comes Friday I have the same OS 8 to work with from my 5s backup.

    I'm thinking this maybe just a good way to go instead of working off of OS 7 to reload everything to the new phone.

    What's everyone's plan

    Couldn't hurt ... I will probably upgrade mine to iOS8 as well, although I don't think it would be necessary. I'm sure that Apple has carefully tested loading from iOS7 backups to an iOS8 phone.
