    Hi,

    I have the iPhone 4S with iOS 7, I've tried multiple times to upgrade to iOS 8 but I keep getting download errors from Apple's servers.

    Anyway, my iPhone 6 gets delivered today and I was just wondering if I backup my iPhone 4S with iOS 7 in iTunes; can I restore this back-up to my new iPhone 6 that has iOS 8 installed?

    Thank you!

    It worked fine on my husband's phone, and he didn't update his 4s from 7 to 8.

    Fine here as well, my husband went from iOS 7 on his 5 to the 6 and it was a seamless update!

    Works perfectly - I did "upgrades" across many iOS versions and devices, with only the occasional "clean start." (And then, the clean starts were generally on already-owned devices-and-versions because of problems; not because of the OS or device switch itself.)
