    How are you?
    Finally I have delivery confirmation of my 5s for Monday.
    I currently have a 5. When the 5s arrives, I will do a full iTunes encrypted Backup of the 5 to then restore to the 5s and have "my phone" on the 5s.
    I was wondering... In order to get the free i apps of the iwork and ilife suits, do I have to first activate the 5s as new, setup my account and icloud and download the apps? and only after, restore the backup?
    Is this the best way?

    Setup your phone either new or from backup that's your choice then go to the App Store. It's really as simple as that!

    Thank you for your reply.
    My fear was if I restored from a backup from an earlier device, I would not have access to the free apps.
    If it is not the case, I will setup from the backup directly.
