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!

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.)
