    The iMessage iCloud integration is wonderful, now it's less of an annoyance to set up an iPhone as new because I can keep all my messages. But the Health app and its data was the only other thing that couldn't be moved over to another iPhone when setup as new. Has this changed?

    Happy here too .... the only reason I restored in the past was due to messages. When the watch came along I then had 2 reasons (messages and health/activity). 1 down, 1 to go hopefully.

    I have been requesting this from Apple feedback for 3 years. I have lost my health data a half dozen times because of health is reset when setting up as new. Thank goodness. No more losing activity. (Hopefully that's included, but I don't see why not).

    Yesssssss.

    I would so much rather view my data and long-term trends on my iPad screen. Activity too. And if meal logging comes to the Health app then especially so.

    Someone to test first? lol

    By the way, I would be very happy if this backup of health data on iCloud includes the Apple Watch achievements and exercises informations.

    I know. I was thinking the same thing. Who wants to restore their phone to see if it works. I don't. I don't even want to risk it with restoring my backup back. During the 10.1 fiasco I lost all my data because of a bug, even with encrypted and iTunes backups.

    I can't imagine activity won't be included because it's all combined.

    It better be included, otherwise it's worthless to me. That's what I am sick of losing. Health data I don't care about. It's the activity app that is valuable to me.

    Exactly... I want to restore my iPhone and use as a new phone, without my old data, but I only need my Activity data back.

    Same here. I don't care about messages or game data. Thats all backed up through various clouds incorporated in the games. All I care about is activity. I have fallen victim to needing to restore as new 5 times since I got my Apple Watch. I can't hit my 365 days :(

    I installed the iOS 11 beta over the 10.3.3 beta, on a 6+ and was getting horrible lag opening apps, and generally didn't feel right. Was going to pass off as normal for a dev beta 1, but had a nagging feeling it could be better.
    I seem to have iMessage in the cloud working, so last night took a iTunes backup and wiped settings and content from the phone. I did not restore a backup, I set up as new.
    I am VERY pleased that not only have my messages restored...but my Heath and Activity INCLUDING achievements have all restored too!
    So happy, and the phone is running way better than before!

    Guys.. there is an easy way to keep all your Activity and Health data. Just do an encrypted iTunes backup. At the moment that's the only way to restore these.

    iCloud backup has always backed up your Health data like iTunes encrypted. The discussion was the ability to do a clean install (NOT from a backup) and reinstall your Health data. iTunes doesn't do this and nether did iCloud and in the past a clean install meant losing your Health data. dazcox5181 is reporting that he/she did a clean install of their iPhone and was able to restore the Health data from iCloud.

    That's wrong. Maybe they changed it but it wasn't always the case. And the other thing I didn't read - just wanted to point out the only way to save Activity and Health data.

    Hm, interesting.. then I probably got confused with all the problems people had with Activity and Health data that got lost.

    Both iTunes encrypted and iCloud backup have backed up health data starting with the release of health in iOS 8.

    Can you screenshot your Activity app now after the restore? And the achievements? They're back?
